Maker Spotlight: Notes By Post

Welcome to a new series here on the blog! In my Maker Spotlight series, I’ll be highlighting, or–wait for it–spotlighting makers whose work I enjoy. These are not sponsored posts, nor are they hard-hitting reviews. This is just a way for me to share more handmade things that I enjoy.

For this inaugural post, the Big Fat Dragon Crafts spotlight is trained on Notes By Post, an Etsy shop run by Rachel Ott. Full disclosure, I know Rachel personally (I happen to think she’s great), but if I didn’t like her work, I wouldn’t be writing this post.

Notes By Post is the premiere place to get handcrafted stationary. Rachel painstakingly cuts beautiful wallpaper to create notecards that anyone would be delighted to receive. Her cards would certainly classy up my stationary drawer, which is mostly full of stickers, emergency birthday cards, and a few sheets of Garfield stationary I’ve had since I was a kid.

Here are some examples for you to ogle (click the photos to visit the Etsy listings):

I know, right?? So pretty!

So, there you have it! I hope you enjoy this new series that focuses on what other people are making besides myself. Let me know what you think in the comments below, and give Rachel’s shop some love. 🙂
