We’re getting ready to pack it up and head back home to visit family and friends for the holidays. The shop is going to remain open while we’re gone. All orders placed between Saturday, December 20th and Sunday, December 28th will be shipped on Monday, December 29th.
There is still time to get your last minute holiday orders in before we go. All orders placed on or before December 19th will ship before we head out of town.
Wishing you all very happy holidays!
I’ve been experimenting with pattern design lately and today my very first collection is launching for sale on Spoonflower. It is available in fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap! How fun is that?
Below is a peek into my process from my sketchbook and an up-close shot of one of the patterns. Buzz on over to Spoonflower to check out all of the designs and for ordering information.
Happy Thanksgiving from both of us here at Hennel Paper Co! We hope your bellies are filled to the brim with pumpkin pie.

It’s that time of year again and I couldn’t be more excited about it. The holiday music is playing and I’ve got a steamy cup of hot chocolate in hand. There is a chill in the air and I’ve been wearing my knit cowls around for weeks already. I’m ready for the holidays and so is the shop! All of our new holiday cards are now available including five boxed set options. Check out the entire selection here in the shop.
Festive single cards are the perfect holiday greeting for friends and family. Our single cards are 5×7 (A7), printed on recycled paper and paired with colorful recycled envelopes. I don’t know about you, but we’re dreaming of a white Christmas and planning on letting everyone know with this year’s favorite.
The boxed sets are great for when you want to send out cards to everyone you know. They are 4.25″ x 5.5″ (A2), printed on recycled paper and paired with recycled kraft envelopes. All of the boxed sets come packaged in a clear box and are just as pretty as can be.
For something unique, try sending out a New Years card instead of a Christmas card this year. It’s a nice little surprise for your loved ones to get in the mail when they aren’t expecting it. Our personal favorite is the Cheers to the New Year 2015 card.
We have a few new cards in the shop to celebrate the wonderfulness that is autumn. It’s just starting to feel like fall here in Charlotte and I’m loving it. The leaves are starting to fade to yellow and fall from the trees. We’ve been spending our weekends touring the local (and not so local) cider mills. It’s the best time of the year! Bring on the cider and donuts :)
Yesterday kind of sucked. Nothing particularly bad happened, nothing really happened at all actually. It was just one of those days where I hated everything I made and nothing seemed to be flowing. You know what I’m talking about. We’ve all been there, probably more often than we care to admit. Even though it comes with the territory of being creative, it’s still enough to make me doubt everything, most of all myself. I hate days like this. I can have 100 good days and one of these days is enough to make me question if I’m good enough to be doing what I’m doing.
WHAT!? That’s ridiculous and it has to stop. Immediately. We are human, not machines. We cannot produce perfect art 100% of the time. It’s just not possible. There is no shame in that and definitely not worthy of doubting our entire self-worth on.
So, I’ve decided to embrace days like this and try to learn something from them, instead of pretending like they don’t happen.
Yesterday I embraced being imperfect and shared it with the Instagram world.
Today I am giving you a free downloadable art print. It’s yours. Take it. Print it. Hang it up. Look at it when you’re having one of these days. Shake it off. Just don’t resell it. :)

Our most recent trip was to Oak Island
, a seaside town on the southeast coast of North Carolina. Less commercialized than the ever amazing Wrightsville Beach
, this is the perfect little town for a relaxing beach weekend. We spent most of our time on beautiful Long Beach, walking for miles with no end in sight. Long Beach allows dogs year round, which is one of the major reasons we decided to visit. We love including our pup on our trips and he loves it just as much. This was his first trip to the ocean and once he stopped barking at the waves he really started loving the beach. He was soaked in salt and sand, spent hours chasing the birds and discovered a real distaste for the pelicans. It might be because I’m not accustomed to seeing pelicans on a regular basis, but I actually really like them. They fascinate me and are entertaining to watch as they plop into the water looking for their next meal.
If you’re in Carolina and looking for the perfect little beach town getaway, this is it. The only thing about this trip that I didn’t like was the fact that we couldn’t stay longer.
