{an artist with a past... }

In my previous life as a shop owner, we featured a wonderful line of vintage-inspired, hand-crafted paper goods by a local artist, Monica Macias. Her items, the perfect blend of inspired elegance and nostalgic whimsy, were an instant hit with customers-whether to adorn a special gift package or to add a little sparkle to one's holiday.  I still have several of her petite creations sprinkled in special spots throughout my home. 

I was beyond thrilled to re-discover Monica's inspired goodies through the wonderful world of etsy. Her shop, Artful Memories, offers a little something for everyone--including le bébé.

If words like seam binding, baker's twine, and forget-me-knots make your heart skip a beat too, skip on over to Monica's other shop, Caramelos--featuring her dreamy collection of vintage-inspired notions and art supplies.

Hi Monica...it's so nice to *see* you again--I've missed you so. xo ~suzanne

***Update*** 
Monica has graciously offered free shipping to S.HOPtalk readers through the month of July. Simply mention "S.HOPtalk" in the message to seller and she will reimburse any shipping charges. Thanks so much Monica!
