Pushing Papers Shop – Did You Know?

Pushing Papers Surprise Packs

First of all, hello! I’ve been away from this blog for awhile. How have you been?

Second, did you know I have an Etsy shop called Pushing Papers? I put together surprise packs of the prettiest notecards (much of it is letterpress) and other paper goods, and I always add in some bonus treats for you too.

In honor of the Labor Day weekend, use YAYLABORDAY coupon code for 15% off your order through Monday night (September 5).

And, if you’ve been meaning to buy a paper pack but haven’t gotten around to it, you should consider doing it soon. I stopped adding to my inventory a couple of months ago, and will close the shop when I am all sold out!
