handmade blank velvet minis are officially restocked in my etsy shop! the last batch I put up in my shop sold out in a matter of hours…so you definitely want to grab one while you can…

sticking with a spooky vibe (tis the season right?!) I’ve added several new designs – all of which are made with the velvet paper binding. I also recently got my hands on some black velvet paper, which is a brand new color in addition to the wine and deep blue.

hop on over here to snag one! xo

shop update


okay, so let’s talk shop!

first and most obvious, I’ve moved my shop over to etsy. to make things easy I will keep a link to the shop in my sidebar. I have also added a ‘subscribe’ feature to my blog, so you can stay updated on everything I post here!—->

of course blank mini’s are in stock, but I have also added some new items! one item I am particularly excited about is the postcard set. I’ve been raving about these postcards for months, and now I’m finally ready to pack em up and ship em out! also in the shop – some miscellaneous illustrations which I will probably constantly update and share via instagram. I have so many little drawings just taking up space, so I would love to find them new homes…xo

thank-you for your support and happy shopping!

shop launch // mini journals available!


why yes, you read it correctly. not only is my online shop finally open and running – but it’s fully stocked with handmade miniature journals ready for purchase!

because most of the items in my shop will be handmade (with the exception of some super rad postcards coming soon), know that most products are made in limited batches. that being said, if you see something you like – snag it! any shop updates or new item postings will be shared right here on the blog.

as you all know launching the by bun shop has been a huge ongoing goal for me. it’s exciting to finally see it come to life, and be filled with items that I absolutely love and am looking forward to shipping out…enjoy! xo
