Today I'd like to introduce you to a fun little shop that sells adorable paper products, stickers and other items along the Kawaii theme!
"Kawaii" is an adjective in Japanese meaning cute or pretty. Recently it has become commonly used by anime and manga fans to describe Japanese style items of all around total cuteness.
TheArtofJoy on Etsy has taken this Kawaii theme and ran with it with a wide variety of paper products depicting adorable little figures, dolls and pictures incorporated into their work.
The shop is filled with calendars, invitations, party stickers, and other customizable and printable paper designs.
As a school teacher, part-time librarian and busy mom the artisan behind this wonderful shop has a full schedule but loves to create these wonderful and talented items in her spare time as well. Her little shop is complimented by a terrific blog, the Creative Mamma blog, where she not only provides interesting reading material but you can also find free printables you can download!
YOU CAN CLICK ON THE PICTURE ABOVE TO VISIT THEARTOFJOY ON ETSY AND TAKE A LOOK AROUND OR, IF YOU PREFER, YOU CAN CLICK RIGHT HERE.
You can also visit the artist behind the work by stopping by and saying "hi" on Twitter!
