Hello Shorelies! It occurred to me that I never shared these awesome nautical charts you can purchase from our shop with your personalized information. They make the perfect wedding, hostess, anything gifts and would also be the perfect addition to your coastal home this summer :)
Sizes range from 11" x 14" all the way up to 24" x 36" and mounting options are available as pictured.
Well Hello Shorelies! Are any of you still here?? It's been A YEAR since my last post but I'm going to try and rev up my beach inspired postings this summer :) A lot has happened including the growth of Pure Joy Paperie in the weddings and art sector and I'm honestly having a blast! It has been the perfect career move for me as I am able to stay home and raise my son (girl on the way this July!) and do what I love while making a little $$ to help out around the house. Honestly, I could not think of a better situation.
How have you been?? There are so many gorgeous images circulating the web so I'm sure you've been keeping up with all the latest and greatest in coastal chic living. I've been loving Pinterest and catching up on a few blog posts here and there... We're actually redoing our house (which I'll share) so I've been scouring the web for inspiration.
Well, in keeping true to Flamingo Friday, I wanted to share our gorgeous watercolor flamingo that is still our #1 best seller, day after day more and more people purchase this print. I'm so happy it's been such a success because it is SO beautiful and that means people around the world share in the same happy wall art as me.
Hi Everyone!! It's been a while and there have been so many changes in my life, and in my shop! My little guy turned 1 (!!!) and we bought our first house! We've been having so much fun as parents and have been working our tails off in the new house to get things ready. If you follow me at Pure Joy Home, you should have seen the before pictures and the afters are just a few weeks away!
Also, Pure Joy Paperie has been growing by the minute. I've added lots of new art, stamp designs, wedding invitations and other paper goods, lucite trays, etc... We've also started wholesaling so you'll be able to find us in select stores throughout the country (super excited about that!).
Here are some highlights of recent items and I always take custom requests when time permits.
Keep us in mind for your future gift-giving or self-giving (treat yo-self!) needs!
I'm so obsessed with my Pure Vida Bracelets from Costa Rica I couldn't resist blogging about them. I heard about them on Jill's Steals and Deals from the Today Show and though I've been trying to curb my online shopping habit, I HAD to have these. I think they were like 20 something dollars for an assortment, so it was an easy justification :) They have a cool story and I love that:
First, The phrase “Pura Vida” (pu·ra vi·da) means "pure life" in Spanish. Enjoying life slowly, celebrating good fortune and not taking anything for granted embodies the Pura Vida Lifestyle. It's about being free and living life to it's fullest with no regrets or taking anything for granted; it's an attitude.
Here's how the bracelets came about:
"A five week college graduation trip to Costa Rica turned into a business venture for two Southern California friends Griffin Thall and Paul Goodman. Between the beautiful sunsets and the rolling breakers, it wasn't long before these two friends began to deeply appreciate the simple Pura Vida lifestyle and the culture of the people they encountered. This is how it all began..
During a visit to a small community in Costa Rica, they crossed paths with two men named Jorge and Joaquin who were peddling bracelets on the street. Paul and Griffin asked them if they would be willing to make 400 bracelets to take back to the United States with them. Jorge was delighted to make such a sell, and the guys were thrilled to help them out, but to everyones good fortune, soon after returning to the states their friendship blossomed into a full-fledged business relationship." - Pura Vida Bracelets About Page
