See you at NSS 2018!

As you may have seen via our much more frequently used social media accounts,  Papyrusaurus will be appearing at the National Stationery Show at the Javits Center!  I’m extremely excited to be bringing my handmade gifts and cards to our very first trade show.  If you’ve noticed that I haven’t been doing many pop up markets lately, this is why.  All my energy is going into preparations for this show, and quite frankly, learning as I go.  This is completely different than what I’m used to and it’s sometimes a lot to take in and process.  But, I think I’ve prepared an eye catching, inviting, and professional (but not boring) space, and I’m looking forward to meeting with buyers and shop owners that are great matches for my brand of quirky!


No Sleep Til….Somewhere in NY.

Hi there!

So, it’s been a minute because….well, I’m not a big fan of writing blogs. I assume I update all my social media enough for those interested to keep tabs on me. But, in case you’re NOT following me on IG or FB, (which you should because I’m an absolute delight), I and my little family relocated to Long Island about a month and half ago. So, if you’ve wondered why you haven’t seen me stomping all over western PA and eastern OH this summer, that’s why. I’m not there any more.

It’s been an adjustment, business-wise. While I’m still making the drive back to OH for my beloved Night Market Cleveland each month, I’ve been basically starting all over out here. Lots of researching and applying for totally new-to-me-shows, meeting new maker folks, and rebuilding booths and displays for larger shows. And of course, I’m in holiday show prep time- ornaments are happening daily and new packaging is hopefully getting made soon. I’m excited to enter the busy season with a slicker, more professional look this year. I mean, gob knows I won’t look any more professional, so my work may as well make up for that.

Personally, it’s been pretty great being closer to family and friends out here. Eddie’s schedule is hectic during the week, but we’ve been taking advantage of the weekends to get out and explore areas of NYC that we haven’t been to before (and eating our way through them). Our oldest, Finn, has been having a blast coming to street fairs and more “grown up” restaurants with us. Both kids have been enjoying all the parks and beaches, and are looking forward to starting their new school in a few weeks.

I think that’s about it for now. So, TL;DR- We moved and are eating a lot of things. And I’ll keep y’all posted with upcoming events.

Stay crafty,

We’re going on an adventure!

Hey y’all!  Thank you to everyone who has dropped by and checked out this super fancy new site.  You folks are all awesome!

With school ending for our little guys, the mister and I are finally taking our honeymoon vacation.  Which means, the shop is going on vacation while we’re gone.  I’ll re-open when we return, June 26th.  In the meantime, you can still peruse all of the great creations AND follow along on our hijinks through England, Scotland and Belgium via Instagram- @papyrusauruscraft.

Hope everyone has a fabulous start to their summer and I’ll see you back here in a few weeks!

Welcome to the world of Papyrusaurus!

Hi there!  Thanks for dropping by and checking out my little corner of the universe.  Some of you have been fans for years, but for those just joining us on this crazy ride, I’m Ashley and I’m the owner/creator/general madwoman behind Papyrusaurus.  In the shop you’ll find something for pretty much everyone on your list- beautiful bespoke ornaments, quirky cards, unique book page prints, fine art prints and decor for your celebrations.  While I love dabbling in a lot of different styles, my main love is everything geeky.  Fandoms, classic novels, scientists, weird TV shows and pop icons from my youth can all be found featured in my designs.  I like to think I have a HUGE variety here, but I’m also available for custom pieces if you have something super special in mind.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have a fun idea or even just a question you can’t find an answer to in my FAQ!

Thank you for popping in and I look forward to making awesome things for you!
