November for our monthly gift box subscribers brought this ocean-themed handmade stationery set that was custom-created just for Fair Ivy. How cool is that?
Created by handmade artist Nicole Ray of Sloe Gin Fizz, this set of 4 blank notecards are a perfect way to send a lovely little note to someone you care about.
We really loved the nautical-themed creative gift packaging that the ocean handmade stationery set came in. Not only was the wrap-around paper of a sea wave design, but the “Handmade for you” hangtag was hand-drawn with an anchor on it!
Sloe Gin Fizz’ unique, playful artist info card reads:
“Nicole Ray is an artist and illustrator based in southeast Michigan. She graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York and Trinity College in Connecticut.
Nicole creates a line of whimsical art prints and paper goods infused with a playful sense of humor under the name Sloe Gin Fizz. Her daily rhythms are fueled by bottomless cups of coffee, towering stacks of books and ginger-filled dreams of savory and sweet.
Nicole and her mister recently moved to a log cabin on a lake where they are busy cultivating a growing network of critter friends.
This set of Water Ways cards was inspired by all things water and contains two designs created specifically for Fair Ivy – and you.”
