Welcome! I’m Sandra (or Sandy…I answer to both) and I’m so glad you’re here. I’m a graphic designer, hand lettering artist and designer of stationery and personalized gifts and accessories.
I’m excited to introduce you to my new (very new) Zazzle shop. I’ve got a ways to go before it’s filled up, but right now I’m happy to have a starting point. If you’ve known me for a while, you know that my site, my shop and my brand have been under construction for some time, so opening the virtual doors is a pretty big deal. If you’re new here, read on to learn a little more about me and what’s ahead.
Here’s a quick rundown:
- I love the beach. I live in a beautiful spot on the Jersey shore (yep, I’m a Jersey girl, through and through) and grow to appreciate it’s beauty more and more each day. I am minutes from the ocean, I see a lighthouse from my office window and I hear seagulls overhead in the summer. What’s not to love?!
- I’m obsessed with typography and lettering. Seriously. Put a marker in my hand and I’ll draw letters until the ink runs out.
- I’m equally obsessed with all shades of the color blue and anything with a coastal vibe. You’ll probably pick up on that when you visit the shop. Give me all the coastal things!
- I’m a dog lady. That’s a thing, right? I love all the dogs, but more specifically my own. She’s my sidekick, confidant and all-around bestie. She follows me from room to room, tripping me if I turn around too quickly, barks at the most inconvenient times (like when I’m on the phone) and is the reason I need to vacuum almost daily, but I wouldn’t trade her for anything. (You can see her from time to time on my Instagram stories.)
personalized gifts and accessories
The shop was born from my love of lettering and all things design. I wanted to create a space filled with personalized gifts and accessories, in a style that’s modern yet timeless and fun yet polished. The collection will feature hand lettered tote bags, mugs, accessory pouches and home decor designed by yours truly. I have ideas for days and I’m only just getting started with a handful of items but stay tuned. I’ll be adding more items as we head into the spring and summer seasons and, if you live here in NJ, be sure to check out the local goods custom made for some of our favorite beach towns!
