I’ve been doing a little sketchin’ lately, ok a lot of sketchin’. This one started out as a “quick & simple” design for this week’s Spoonflower contest. Half an hour max.. I was only going to draw the jar. Haha, right. Four hours later I had an entire page filled with everything the word pickle could bring to mind. I lose hours in my sketchbook. One minute it’s 10am and the next thing I know Steve is in the kitchen making dinner. It’s a very magical thing.
This week’s sketch hit the scanner and quickly turned into just the darn cutest pickle pattern I’ve ever seen. I love the little sprigs of dill and the polka dot spices in the background. If you’re on Spoonflower, hop over to vote in the contest. It will be open for the next few days before they announce the winner.
Mother’s Day is going to be here before you know it and we have a beautiful new line of cards perfect for everyone from moms to dog moms. Our best selling Mother’s Day card Mom You Were Always Right got a facelift this year and we just love it’s new look. Shop them all here.
Don’t forget to take a look at the back of the cards. Many of them have cute little details your mama will just love.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and we’ve got you covered. We have 14 new cards this year with a few new looks for some old crowd favorites like Nuts About You and I Love You Like Crazy. We’re also very excited to announce our recent paper change – we’re now using a heavier 100# card stock that is 100% recycled. We absolutely love it and think you will too!
Be sure to check out the backs of the cards. Many of them have cute design elements that add a special touch. (Psst.. additional product photos can be found on each product page under the main photo.)
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 :)
