Why We Love it

Repeat after us: Rest is the only cure for burnout. This small but mighty zine is here to remind you of the value of taking a break, and was inspired by founder Kristen Drozdowski’s experience during lockdown, running her business, making art and being a mom. “I started a practice of taking a break in the afternoon to just lay down on the floor and breathe, and it helped me so much.”

Meet The Founder

KRISTEN DROZDOWSKI

Kristen Drozdowski was in her final year of college and interning at art galleries and designing silk-screened posters for exhibitions. “After graduating, I had a plethora of part-time jobs: in-house designer at a local stationery shop, calligraphy and hand-lettering for weddings, I loved it all but everything felt like a side project,” she says. Drozdowski wanted to see what would happen if she really dedicated herself to one project. “When I realized I wanted to start my own stationery and gift line, it was actually less of a leap and more of a series of careful steps. I started gently pruning away the kinds of work I was doing that didn’t align with my strongest aspirations, and focused more on nourishing what I wanted to do most, which led me to design my first small collection of greeting cards and screen prints”

Drozdowski finds joy in being able to provide things that others use to celebrate and brighten the days of their loved ones. “Making goods that nourish positive connections gives the creativity behind them an added purpose, which still fuels my ideas today.”
