Our Mission

We aim to make the world a brighter place with each piece of our eclectic collection by encouraging people to celebrate art and revive the tradition of the handwritten note, which we believe is one of the most meaningful and impactful ways to communicate in our tech-driven world.

Founding Story
We are a new design company  and are so happy you stopped by to see us! Our founder, Ansley Pridgen, decided to start this venture in October, 2015 after she moved to North Carolina from New York City. She wanted to utilize her love for art to start her own design company - a dream she has had since childhood.
She graduated from SMU with a major in accounting. After graduation, she moved to New York to learn about fashion production. A year later, she felt ready to produce her own designs. Ansley moved to North Carolina to be with family, and began pursuing her love of painting. In just a few months, she has established this small business with over 150 greeting card designs and 30 prints. She working to add lifestyle products soon!  Ansley hand glitters many designs, with the help of her mother, who is also a creative enthusiast. 
This journey has just begun, and we hope you will join us as we grow!
