We love celebrating birthdays at Neighborly, and now it's time to celebrate our own. We can't believe we've been in business for one year! It seems like just yesterday we were sitting in Carmelle's Harlem apartment, dreaming of our next big idea. Carmelle talked about films, advertising campaigns, and art direction. I was babbling on about a children's book, about writing a novel, and about corporate communications. And then I mentioned a greeting card line. I mentioned it the way most uncertain people mention ideas, by laughing. I mean sure I could do the writing, but I had no idea how to run a business, and then of course, I'd need a designer... 

"I'll do it with you," Carmelle said. 
"Really?"
"Sure, send me your ideas. You'll do the writing and I'll do the illustrations."

And from there, Neighborly Paper was born. I got to writing and Carmelle got to designing. We started with The Happier Than series and today have over 40 designs in 16 categories. 

It has been an absolute joy bringing our ideas to life and we thank you for supporting us through this journey. From purchasing cards to sharing kind words, and everything in between, you have made it all worth it.
