Blog-o-versary #8: Caity Shinnick Set of 16 Stationary Cards (CLOSED)


There's nothing as cool as pulling out a note card or piece of paper & seeing your name on it. Personalized stationary is something I've always wanted to buy but never found a design that I believed fit my personality...until now.


I came across Caity Shinnick Stationary while doing some Etsy surfing. Caity's designs are all colorful, original, cute & fun. Honestly, there wasn't anything in her store that I didn't adore.



Caity Shinnick Stationery started as a last minute solution to a request for graduation gifts and has grown into a passion and calling to share kinds words, creativity, and inspiration. Caity grew up in Franklin, Tennessee, always crafting with her mom and sister; although, she never considered it an occupation. However, she couldn't find her place when she went to college. Her boyfriend (now husband) gently convinced her to leave the traditional university they attend to pursue art school. And she's never turned back.



Years later, there are dozens of stationery designs, wedding suites, custom invitations, and all sorts of other paper-y items (tote bags, magnets) designed, printed, and cut from her home studio. Caity's love of all things creative collides with her love of people in her life. Each stationery design is created and named after someone special in her life, such as her sister, Sarah Beth.


The journey that has brought her here has been wonderful and challenging. To leave you with encouragement and insight to her world, Caity wants to leave you with the pep talk she gives herself when the view of her dream grows weak...


"Don't let life talk you out of your dream. Don't get caught up in the busyness and forget about it either. Listen to the people who love you, it will take you farther than you can go alone. Above all, nurture the gift that has been placed in you, find calling and purpose in it. Trust yourself to make it happen."
