I'm Heidi, a small town Indiana girl that made her way to Baltimore somehow and became a teacher. On the days I felt burned out in the classroom, I turned to art as a creative outlet. The final products-- cards and stationery.
Six years later, I moved on from the classroom to design and make cards full time from my home studio in my historic Baltimore row house. I never thought that something I did to keep a creative energy going would turn into my job, but I am always excited for a new adventure in life.
I want to make someone's day when they receive a note jotted down on my stationery or are surprised by one of my greeting cards in the mail. I want people to laugh or smile with the hopes of making their day a little bit happier. Hearing the stories behind why a customer is purchasing and giving a particular greeting card is truly one of my favorite aspects of my job.
Aside from cards, I offer other stationery goods such as note cards, notebooks, and pencils. The pencils are all individually hand imprinted with a vintage Kingsley press which is a piece of history in itself. The process is one that I enjoy immensely and is truly a labor of love.
Working with my hands is incredibly fulfilling for me. I also find importance in using recycled and sustainable paper and products for the end results in my shop. I want my business to not only bring happiness to others, but to be an extension of my own lifestyle from the day to day, so that includes being environmentally conscious while still providing an incredibly high quality product.
Through Row House 14, I hope to offer witty, stylish, and ridiculously hilarious stationery goods.
