We began in 2010 as Paper, Ink & Earth, an Etsy store showcasing custom-made stationery and throw pillow cover designs that blended Katie’s signature graphic designs with whimsy, humor and the unexpected. However, through a serendipitous combination of customer demand and our own desire to grow and offer more, our small store was ready for something bigger.
We knew it was time to follow suit. We chose June & December for all it symbolizes—two months that could not be more opposite, but are a part of a greater whole. They're the months our two children were born and the months in which Michigan is like two homes: frigid and quiet in the wintertime, golden and ebullient in the summer. Life is about finding balance between contrasts and celebrating the happy accidents in between. We think memorable design is a bit like that, too.
