I'm SO excited to share the newest addition to Pure Joy Paperie, these customized nautical chart maps! I LOVE the look of nautical charts, especially when they're blown up BIG and framed on the wall. Our charts come personalized with an anchor over the exact location of your home with your family's name, established date, and address on the corner. 

We have one over our bar (below)

You can shop for them here :)

Hello, Shorelies :) I'm excited to announce Pure Joy Paperie is now designing and printing wedding invitations! There are four complete designs in the collection and I am also working on custom designs with a few brides-to-be! 

The invitation is such an important aspect of the wedding because it really sets the tone for the feel of the big day. My collection is elegant and beachy in style and is printed on quality cotton paper. If you or anyone you know is the market for wedding invitations, please send them my way! 

 You can see the complete collection here, and can even order samples :)

Newport Beach Ocean Front

I recently stumbled across the architecture firm of William Guidero out of Newport Beach and FELL IN LOVE with this perfect house right on the ocean ::

Are you dying? Isn't it so perfect in its casual, barefoot, fancy free chic vibe?

New in the Shop :: State Prints!

Good Morning Shorelies! I'm super excited to introduce these new state prints to the shop! Each piece is hand-drawn and and painted with watercolor, and features the most famous landmarks in the state. They are so fun to paint but do take time so the collection is slowly but surely filling out. 

I am taking custom requests, but only for states, not cities. I'll be working on a few special favorite vacation spots but right now that's not a priority.  

I hope you like these, and I'm running a special in the shop for 20% on state prints today with code: STATEPRINTS. 

I hope you like ;)

Hello my lovelies. It felt so good to be back on Shorely Chic this week and it was great to connect with you again after a long hiatus. Remember Flamingo Friday?! I have some awesome flamingo prints to share with you from a shop on Etsy I just recently discovered. It's called Parima Creative Studio and she has some FABULOUS flamingo prints!

Take a look:

Are they not GORGEOUS!?

New Monogrammed Notecards!

Hello Shorelies!! It's been so long since I've posted here but I think about you, always :) As many of you know I've been posting over at Pure Joy Home when I can get breaks from my little guy and keeping up my Etsy shop when I can, too.

I came out with some new notecards this season that I thought you all might like so I wanted to be "shore" you saw them!

Each set comes with 20 notecards and is packaged in an eco-friendly kraft box tied with a bow :)
