We came upon Papaya! as we were preparing for the onslaught of fun-and-stylish calendars that always let loose in anticipation of January 2008. Papaya started out as a mother-and-daughter duo that focused on creating “luscious, brave, heart-centered artwork.” We feel like this description holds true, as the designs feel like they could have been plucked from Luhrmann’s “Romeo and Juliet”—with a refreshing and exotic feminine angle. (Click here, for some good examples.)
As we said, the 2008 calendars caught our eyes first. But as we started digging around the site, we came across favorite blank note cards like “I Miss You” and “Girl With Parrot.” Or maybe it’s the selection of journals or the envelope series that will be the most “papayalicious” to you. We think the Love Letters might be good for framing.
