Pink Loves Brown has closed.

I started my stationery shop, Pink Loves Brown, in 2005. I was fortunate to have been successful, with my designs sold throughout the world, and I enjoyed meeting many of you at local Chicago craft shows, as part of the indie craft community. The shop closed briefly when my daughter was born in 2009, opening up after a six month hiatus. When my son was born in 2011, I had intended to follow the same path. Things changed, as they often do in life, and I eventually made the decision to close the shop.

Thank you all, for all of your support over the years. I will miss my stationery business, but I will be following new opportunities and am grateful to have had the experiences I did with my shop.
