I achieved my goal for the day!

As part of my creative outlet, I’ve decided to start creating stationary as a digital download. I am looking forward to creating small paintings to use as the design for multiple sets of stationery that people would download from Etsy and use as we try to revive snail mail – let’s rebrand it as happy mail 🙂

documented proof of lined paper!

The first step I needed to achieve was how to create lined paper in Photoshop. After watching a video (about 20 times) and reading suggestions on the Adobe forum I have finally done it. I’ve made lined paper. (It doesn’t sound so impressive as I say it out loud, but this occupied about an hour of my day yesterday and about 20 min today. But, I persevered and finally figured it out.

My idea for creating the stationary is to have lined and unlined versions of it. It will come in 8.5 x 11 size and A4 size that can be printed for the full sheet or the end-user can print 2 pages per sheet. I will also create a template for a coordinating envelope that can be printed, cut out, and then glued/taped – then everything will coordinate.

What do you think? Do you think snail mail is dead or can we revive it with easy to obtain creative stationary?

Hi there, this is Brandi. I'm a pharmacist who works a very funny schedule, all week long but only every other week. As a result I'm off half the year plus vacation time. What do I do in all that time off? Good question... maybe if I start documenting it I'll know too:) Just kidding! I spend a lot of time on domestics: fixing up my house, cooking, sewing, knitting and of course bonding with my darling dog Darcy. I actually have the time and money to travel a bit, finally, so I will try to do that often on my week off. To my friends, this may be the quickest way to see what's going on in my life while I'm away.
