New products, discontinued products and Secret Leaves' name in lights

I have a few pieces of news to share and thought I would share them here. First, I am excited to announce that handmade stationery products from Secret Leaves paperworks have been selected as movie props for upcoming Screen Gems feature film The Roommate, starring Leighton Meester of Gossip Girl, Minka Kelly from Friday Night Lights and Cam Gigandet of Twilight fame. Recycled paper journals, handmade recycled stationery, 100% post-consumer recycled gift enclosures and handmade greeting cards were among the items selected as set dressing for the suspense thriller, which is currently in production.

As a result of the Screen Gems news, Secret Leaves has been getting some good local press as well. We were featured in Sauce magazine's Daily Sauce and also in the St. Louis Business Journal. The story is also circulating the web. Kind of a fun little tidbit, no?

Secondly, I am dropping some items from the line and have added some others. I have three Cigar Box album kits left and once they are gone, I won't be offering them anymore. This is largely because when I first introduced them, there wasn't much of anything like them out there, but now I am seeing all kinds of items packed in cigar boxes for much cheaper than I can afford to offer them. The good news is that the three I have left are on sale, marked down from $85 to $45! Email me if you are interested in them.

They are quite lovely, multi-purpose, have across-the-board appeal and are reasonably priced at $3.95 each, retail. (If you are a shop owner, email me for wholesale prices. For those of you who haven't ordered in awhile, there are several other new products you may not have seen.)

If you have any questions or would like to purchase something, you can contact me here.

How exciting about the movie! I want to see it simply to see how they use all your wonderful stuff! Love the new notecard designs, too, especially the one with the floral border around the birds.

Secret Leaves said...

Thanks Diane. That design seems to be everyone's favorite. Good to know!

Thank you so much for your kind comments on my blog -- and you can add another mutual love -- paper and all things paper. But I'm not nearly as artistic as you, apparently! I see that you live in St. Louis -- so does my little sister! I look forward to visiting often and sharing our "work."

I don't know what IS it about paper? Even just looking at it in all its combinations and manifestations.
This is (another) lovely entry.
I'm going to snoop around here a bit more and see if you have a shop, too. I live right here in St. Louis!
