Karen Walrond from Chookooloonks, and a collector of my work, recommended my work again, this time in her Bliss Your Heart blog series. What a sweet birthday gift that was!


My custom  Moroccan doorway papercuts were featured in the Munaluchi Bridal, a wedding magazine for women of color (later also linked in The Huffington Post Weddings ). You can also see them in the printed Fall/Winter 2011 Edition of Munaluchi Bridal.

Father (Definition) Original Handcrafted Papercut by PaperCutWorks was featured in an etsy member curated treasury celebrating Father’s Day:

Unfortunately “Treasury East” experienced a fatal error soon after this treasury was created & I was unable to recover the name of its curator.

I left my Heart in San Francisco Original Hand Cut Paper Art by PaperCutWorks was featured in a Rise & Shine themed treasury during the same week and unfortunately also was soon after lost in cyberspace:


Giveaway feature on “I Heart Handmade”:

(Excerpt) Here’s a papercut that doesn’t hurt: Each of these intricate hand-cut hearts is made from old dictionary pages, outdated maps or vintage sheet music.  Ania — the gal behind the hearts — then mounts them on wood blocks or pap er cards.  The end result are these expressive anatomical paper hearts.  What better way to say, “I love you” or “I left my heart in Seattle” (or San Francisco, Portland…)?


{I Heart Seattle} Featured on Etsy’s Front Page

& in what great company! Visit Statsy to view each of the above featured handmade items. This prominent feature resulted in PaperCutWorks on etsy scoring 35 new shop “hearts” ({I Heart Seattle} received 55 new “hearts”). “Hearts” is Etsy’s internal system of bookmarking members’ favorite shop.

    LOVE your creativity. I’m searching for an artist who can cut a map of Napa Valley, CA, to give to my son and his fiancee for their wedding gift? Do you cut this kind of request? Thanks, Leah Wood
