About Us: Creativity + Mindfulness

The Paper Seahorse Manifesto
The Paper Seahorse Manifesto

We believe in the magic of letting go of digital distractions so we may
reconnect with ourselves and each other.

 Artisanal pencils, paper, pens, journals, and typewriters help us slow
down so we can experience and celebrate the little things that make
living in real life refreshing and satisfying.

We believe in the radical kindness of keeping in touch; the heartwarming joy of sending and receiving a handwritten note.

Find calm and flow through the freedom of play and delight in discovering your creativity.

Take a vacation from your screens; unplug and recharge!
Always remember, your friends are here to lift you up.

P.S. We Love You
