After a short hiatus, Amelie's Paperie is up and running again with a new vision and wedding invitation collection. Lets start with the vision. When I first opened my little shop on Etsy I mainly focused on Wedding Invitations. I work in the wedding industry (in my real life) so it is something that I know very well and something I am passionate about. On a whim I put up some old art work I had lying in my basement from my college days (sadly the last time I had made time to paint) and what do you know...they sold! As you can imagine I was very excited. I had never sold any piece of art I had ever done. So I decided that instead of solely focusing on invitation and paper goods I would turn my shop in to a paper store/ gallery and boutique for accessories and home goods. Now bear with me, this is going to take some time to get of the ground but I have a million ideas swirling around inside my head and I can't wait to get back to my oil paints.
