our story

hello! i'm ahanah, illustrator and greeting card designer. i've had this dream job since 2007. 

i began printing beautifulthinks (click to view) on my home laser printer and selling in local stores and markets on salt spring island. first they were all buddha and granola and lotus flowers and then they started to feature unicorns and f bombs...  

beautifulthinks are artisan, hand finished greeting cards with a signature island sensibility in every detail including their recycled envelopes and messages that advocate harmony, compassion and a healthy dose of love. beautifulthinks are richly illustrated, thoughtful, practical and full of beauty; these cards are perfect for sharing with all the special people in your life.

all beautifulthinks greetings are digital reproductions of my watercolor illustrations that are created in my home studio then are printed locally on robust FSC card stock with colourful, recycled envelopes and come with NO plastic packages because it's 2020 and we all know plastic is stupid.
