New Goodies & A New Look

Just a little update to announce all of the new goodies in the shop and also mention that we’re making some changes to the look of the blog. Drop me a comment and let me know what you think. I’m loving how much cleaner the layout is and that the photos are much larger than they used to be.

Adventures in Charlotte: Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden

A couple weeks ago, we went to visit the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. We are on a mission to explore Charlotte and we’re having so much fun while we’re at it. The DSBG is about 20 minutes south of Charlotte, near the NC/SC border, in Belmont.  It was a beautiful, albeit steamy day, capping off at around 95 degrees. We were only there a couple hours, but managed to walk all of the grounds and snap some good photos. Our last botanical garden visit was to The Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC and in comparison the DSBG is much smaller, but still absolutely beautiful. Definitely worth the trip.

Hennel Paper Co. is moving!

SS-shop-closed2

 

We’re packing up and preparing to make the move from Detroit, MI to Charlotte, NC. The shop is going to be closed from noon Friday, June 13 (EST) until Saturday, June 21. All orders placed by noon on Friday will be shipped out the same day. We’ve got a long list of things to do, like packing for instance, while we’re waiting for the moving truck to get here this Friday. We can’t wait to get down there and give you an update on what I’m sure is set to be an interesting journey. We’re so very excited for this new adventure. Here we come, Charlotte.

Behind the scenes with our Father’s Day cards

A behind the scenes view at the making of our new Father’s Day cards. I just love the difference between the black and white drawing and the finished art, don’t you? It’s so exciting to see them come to life.

Don’t forget, Father’s Day is June 15th! You can find all of our cards here in the shop and also on Etsy.

Carolina Bound

So we’ve got some big news. Hennel Paper Co. is moving to gorgeous Charlotte, North Carolina. We are in the process of packing up our cute 4 bedroom house (who wants to rent it?) and trying to figure out how to fit it all into a 2 bedroom apartment. If you have any suggestions on that topic, I’d love to hear them – honestly :) We are very, very excited and feeling a little overwhelmed since this is all happening so quickly. The husband was offered a really great job opportunity with his company that we just couldn’t say no to. Plus, who doesn’t want to move to North Carolina, right? They get on average 4 inches of snow a year in Charlotte. Last winter, Detroit saw over 96 INCHES. It was the winter of all winters up here. 

Our move date is set for June 19th. The shop is open and fully functional – (we just released a new batch of cards this week – blog post coming), but we anticipate some down time while we are on the road. It’s a long drive from Detroit with a nervous dog and a sassy little cat. More details will be posted here on shop availability when we have them. Until then, wish us luck packing and finding a tenant. Our house went on the market yesterday afternoon and we have 8 house showings scheduled for today already. Woo!
