I got to speak to the amazing owner of Elle B. Paper Co and asked her a few questions about this awesome building. When I asked her what her job description was, her reply was “I work full time for the City of Hamilton, but have a little stationery business on the side called Elle B. Paper Co. where I can express my creativity.” She is also a mother to two sweet little dudes, she has her hands full but still finds some time to create these unique paper products! I also got a chance to ask her where does she come up with some of these cards and her funny reply was “I love the conversations with my husband that inspire the majority of the greeting cards and art prints.”
What are some of the job downsides? “When I get inspired I write down my ideas. But sometimes I can’t get around to creating anything for a few days because I’m working full time.” I also asked her how long Elle B. Paper Co has been around for “I haven’t been involved long… A few months. But the ideas have been brewing for much longer than that.” I must admit, a lot of her cards make me laugh and smile so you are doing a fantastic job! What are some of the next big steps? “The next steps could possibly be more handmade festivals. I usually just take it day by day. I do custom requests for greeting cards, and have been toying with the idea of creating invitations (kids, weddings, etc).”
If you pop over to her Etsy page you will see that she does far more than just cards. You have a wide selection of gift tags, miniature greeting cards, place cards, prints and book marks! A style for everyone! I think my personal favorite card is the spider card (posted below) Elle B told me the story behind this one card and I thought it was far too cute not to share. “My ideas come from conversations that i have with my husband… Like the Spider card. Every night there is a friggin’ spider or centipede in our bathroom and it’s always huge. I can’t kill them because I hate the ‘crunch’ feeling when you squish them. So I freak out and get him to do it.”
