Home from New York Anime Fest!

What an incredible experience! I had so much fun, especially when meeting all the fabulous people that stopped by the table and said such nice things. I would definitely like to do the show again next year. I'm going to be busy uploading items to my etsy shop and filling this blog with more content, in the meantime here are some photos of the booth-

Off to New York Anime Fest's Artist Alley!

I spent last night finishing up a few pieces and printing out a gocco postcard! It's an edition of 40, I'm going to singe the edges a little bit before I go. I'm so nervous, this will be my first time selling at a show since elementary school! Ah, the good ol' days of hair scrunchies.

I'll be at table #35 with my partner in crime Beth, stop by and say hello!

Step 1

Welcome to the Paperelle blog! This is the new blog for my etsy shop of the same name. I will be posting information about upcoming products, sales, and specials as well as how-to's, chinchilla photos, and other babble.

I've tried all sorts of arts and crafts, and my overstuffed apartment shows it. I can't remember a time when I didn't draw, my mom taught me how to sew when I was 8, learned knitting from a roommate at 20, and continually try different things. My recent focus has been on upcycling, or taking materials destined for a landfill and making them into something beautiful. I've folded way too many origami stars from junk mail, magazines, manga, maps, and anything else that comes to close to my scissors. I love decoupage, am addicted to gocoo, have rediscovered the joys of shrink plastic, and will pick up any object that looks interesting (and relatively clean).

This coming weekend I will be at the New York Anime Festival's Artist Alley, table #35. My good friend Beth will be selling some really cool miniatures and beaded goods alongside stars, ninjas, and bottlecaps.

After the show I'll have new listings, lots of photos, and a better looking layout (hopefully). Here goes!
