Nothing adds personality and story to your home like a good handmade print, especially when your cousin made it. I couldn’t be more proud of my cousin Nikki for pursuing her passion and starting Lake Erie Design Co., a Cleveland-based paper goods and gift shop. Like the Drop in the Ocean Indigo print you see above, she has found her inspiration in the natural world, which results in dream-like designs grounded in the ordinary and everyday beauty of a cresting wave or spindly succulent. If you like her prints as much as I do, you should also check out her journals, calendars, and greeting cards. The cards are like works of art, perfect for marking special occasions you’ll want to commemorate for years to come. You can shop her store here, show her love on Instagram, and visit her at various arts and craft fairs, including the October 13 Cleveland Flea Market.
