Just a little Sunday fun with Photo 505, a software program that lets you take a look at what your designs or even your face might look like in certain situations.
I needed a little bit of cheering up and these really made me smile, I hope they make you smile too ! Wouldn't you like to go to that museum opening or art show and take a look at wonderful Marie Antoinette costumes and more "Finery and Frippery" :)
The card set is for sale at the Paper Nosh.com web-site, but unfortunately Paris Hilton isn't really wearing my design on that shirt. Hmmm........I wonder if she would like it ??? Just dreaming......Have fun looking at these and Happy Sunday ..xoxo,

I wanted to share this video of our friend Sergio Vellatti singing this classic Frank Sinatra song " Fly Me To the Moon" . Hes young, talented and amazing and soon hopefully a household name! Yes, we just heard that he might soon be signed by a major record label. How exciting. Can't wait for more videos and a CD.
As an artist and music lover I always feel that its important to support each others talent and Serg certainly deserves to be promoted and especially heard by anyone who likes music.

Its been a fantastically exciting and busy week !
Claudia, from The Paris Apartment contacted me for a collaboration to show my card line in her booth at the NYC Gift and Textiles show at the Javits Center.
Tons of printing and finishing and a rush ( again) to Fed Ex and off went twelve little boxed sets of Maries, and Au Claire de Lune, and French Costume Design cards. Whew ! Lots of hyperventilating and heavy breathing produced a nice three lb box of lovely gift wrapped samples for the show. Its like sending off my children to pre-school and I stress out beyond belief until I know what becomes of them without me !
I so have admired Claudia and have poured over her lovely book over the past couple of years and dreamed many times of joining her in one of her group tours of Paris, so this is such a huge compliment and a great opportunity for others to see my card line in what I know will be a beautiful setting.
If you are in the area or shopping next week at the show please visit

Booth 8012 in the Jacob Javits Center, 655 West 34th St., New York City.

I wanted to share this feature that "Parisian Party" did on some of my design work.
Here is what she said : " I’ve fallen in love with the beautiful Marie-Antoinette inspired stationery designs from Paper Nosh, designer Paulette Kinney’s Etsy shop. All of Paulette’s designs are printed in-house, and arrive at your door wrapped in satin ribbon in their signature pink or aqua shimmering boxes. Sigh… For more romantic Parisian goodness, take a peek at Paulette’s blog, la pink paperie."
It really is so lovely to have someone do a feature on you that you have never met, but admire from afar. Kim Petyt, is an an American wedding planner in Paris. She has been designing and organizing events for almost 10 years, both in the U.S. and in France, and is the the Owner and Managing Director of a full-service wedding and event planning agency called Parisian Events.
Merci Beaucoup, Kim, for the lovely feature direct from Paris, Paper Nosh seems to be getting alot of great attention from everyone's favorite destination or dream place to live and I so appreciate the compliments on my work !!
