Meet Adele
I live in Northern Virginia with my family.  From stamp collecting when I was younger to selling stationery and finding calligraphy as an adult, I enjoy the collide of art, lettering, and paper!  From 2000 to 2005, I sold stationery through my own small business, Paper Jam.  After teaching preschool for several years and missing the stationery business, I decided to start again!

Adding a Personal Touch
I love to give ‘happies’ to friends which brings me joy!  Do you say ‘happy’ or ‘sercy’ or another phrase?  Whether it’s a ‘happy’ or a ‘sercy’, I believe spreading kindness brightens your day and the recipient’s day.  Having a personalized gift tag or a beautiful monogrammed thank you card can make giving and receiving gifts easy and fun.    



Letters and Littles
In between teaching preschool for 7 years and practicing calligraphy and lettering for several years, my love for paper and pens continues to grow.  For the past couple of years, I taught an ‘art adventures’ lunch program for 3 and 4 year olds.  In between following lettering accounts and researching art, I have found a lot of fabulous artists on Instagram over the last few years.   Follow me  to meet new artists and stay up to date on new products I will be offering.  The Lettering & Art kits are part of a joint project with good friends from Front Porch Art.  I plan to add my art from these lettering projects to notepads, gift tags, and more.
