"TYLRE STICKERS" ~ stickers for imessage! omg! yay!

exactly ten days ago i found out one of my favourite artists, rebecca chaperon, had released a sticker pack for imessage containing a handful of her amazing illustrations in sticker form... of course i immediately rushed to buy it... and it's been so fun! like having her sublime paintings in my hands at all times! then, of course, i was like "wait... i should do this with my designs!"

so i did.

lol. guys........

i was like "yeah, sure, i can hack that!" which is exactly how i approach LITERALLY EVERY SINGLE CHALLENGE THAT COMES MY WAY which is LITERALLY DUMB lol i am so dumb. but also i enjoy the struggle, i like making my brain hurt, i like learning things. and you know, yolo.

i spent the past 10 days chipping away bit by bit at making this app for your enjoyment... i reset passwords, i downloaded applications, i agreed to a shit ton of long documents i didn't read, i updated iOS's (kill me), i spent $99 to become an app developer, i scratched my freakin' head, i googled HARD when things didn't work like they did in the quick tutorial videos and blog instructions i found for making a sticker pack, i got ALL UP ON them forumz and read all the comments, i restarted shit, closed & re-opened apps, waited forfuckingever for simulators to load, spent days trying to find workarounds for their absurd glitches, downloaded other applications .....and...finally..... FINALLY! got my app submitted.

during this time it became apparent that my fav artist girl totally appears to have had some other entity create her sticker pack for her because they also apparently made some other cool sticker pack for some other cool artist.

but anyway. GUYS. i did it. search for "tylre stickers" ! share your screenshots with me on instagram @tylrepaper <3

paper. source. y'all.

my best friend hyunoo moved from birmingham, alabama to DC after graduating college in 2008. i've been heading up there to visit him at least annually ever since, and every time i'm up there i specifically request making a special trip to paper source. for years, YEARS before i even thought of starting my own stationery business, i've been wandering through the paper source store in alexandria, VA with the dreamiest of dreamy eyes... just basically getting lost in the cuteness and feeling so inspired to make things and share art with people.

it wasn't really until i started getting involved in the stationery world that i realized what a big store paper source is... and that they actually carry cards from other small businesses like mine! so since i launched my business, it had been a dream of mine to work with them... and this year my dream came true (slash hard work and persistence paid off? however you choose to look at it)! i'm so thrilled to share that one of my cards is now available at paper source! after packaging and labeling over 600 copies of this card all by myself... i had the teary eyed privilege of visiting it in its new home at paper source this past week! i've also already had friends in seattle, WA and (you guessed it!) alexandria, VA send me photos of themselves with my card in the store. i'm feeling so proud and accomplished and delighted! going to try to hang on to this feeling for a while.

i took the original painting to paper source to see how far she had made it in the world &lt;3
