Thank you to everyone for coming out last night, we had a great time.  Once I know how much we raised for 826 Valencia, I’ll let you know.

Peperina Girl was born out of my love for nature and passion for design.

I was introduced to nature while growing up in Rosario, Argentina. Every summer, my mother would pack up the whole family and take us camping to the mountains of Córdoba. We would always set up our tent at the same spot, right next to the crystal clear waters of the Calamuchita River. In the afternoons, my grandmother Amelia would take my sister, my brother, and me on long hikes in search of peperina* for our afternoon mate**.

Since I moved to California, nature has continued to play a wonderful role in my life. Not only I have learned from its beauty and wisdom, but I am also able to find inner peace and creativity from its power. Whether biking in the hills of Redwood Park or snowboarding at Lake Tahoe, I always feel incredibly thankful and inspired by those who helped preserve nature.

As a graphic designer, I am interested in using my creativity and skills to impact the world in a positive way, while contributing to matters that are close to my heart. Thus, inspired by my desire to help protect our beautiful earth, along with my love for design and paper, I created Peperina Girl.

Inklore is Ink with a Story

Hi there, my name is Sam.  I am a block print artist living with my wonderful husband and adorable children in San Jose, California.  When I’m not blogging, designing, or printing I enjoy all of the small pleasures of life: warm bread, fresh basil from the garden, a finished project, something pretty for my home, clean sheets, a good hearty laugh, or a cup of tea and good book.

When I started Inklore in 2008 it was with the intention of hand crafting items that add pleasure to everyday living. Whether it is a new cushion for your sofa, a hand printed card for your friend’s birthday, or a modern growth chart to keep track of how fast your children are growing, everything I make at Inklore is meant to help you and those you love savor each and every day.

Inspired by nature and the everyday items we all use, I print my designs on high quality linen and cotton using environmentally sensitive, water-based inks.  Everything is washable and color-fast, perfect for simple living.

In 2010, I expanded on my initial ideas with Good Measure, a life-style blog which updates daily with ideas for adding little extras to your everyday life. Good Measure offers ideas for you and your kitchen, garden, home and studio and is meant to inspire you to go beyond the things you have to do, and to really savor each day.
