Understand Blue

Thank you for joining me in Understand Blue! I am the Community Manager of and love all things paper. I love art, animals and technology and try to put them together whenever possible.

My work here is handmade by me, and my prices are based on how long it takes me to make something - so very detailed watercolored images that take several hours cost more and have a lot of love in them. I hope they make you happy!

All of my cards are blank inside unless otherwise noted, and my home is smoke free & peaceful :)

Enjoy and thanks for visiting.
