Maker Story: The Honey Bee Paperie
I have the most beautiful new arrivals to share with you today!
When I'm curating products for the shop, I usually wait for my gut feeling to kick in and confirm whether the item in question is in line with our brand, or to pass it by. When I stumbled upon The Honey Bee Paperie's line, my gut did a hundred somersaults and I wasted no time in trying to get its sweet and whimsical products into the shop.
Jaimie creates her watercolour cards and prints out of her small town home in British Columbia where she lives with her husband, two sons, and two cats. She became a mother in January 2012 and has been at home with her son ever since, loving the simple life they lead in their tiny town.
In Jaimie's words -
"In my time so far being at home with my son, I've learned that it's very important to have something that I work on for myself. Sometimes it is a knitting project, sewing, or learning to tend our garden, but I've recently been focused on my art.
While I've always loved painting, my interest in watercolour is new. I love using it to create fun illustrations and I also like to incorporate my hand-lettered designs."
Not long after she began dabbling in watercolour, friends and family members started requesting prints of her creations, and so The Honey Bee Paperie began. Each piece is handmade, converted into a digital file, and then made into prints.
If you can believe it, Jaimie's work is even more beautiful in person and can truly be classified as a work of art. While much of what we have in stock is technically cards, they could easily be framed and transformed into beautiful prints for your home or as a thoughtful gift for a friend.
