Hi everyone! I’m Claire, the maker behind Peony & Fern. I’ve never formally introduced myself, and since there’s some new faces around here lately, I thought this would be a great opportunity to say hi 😊 I grew up in Southern California but have lived in North Carolina for 13 years. I have a 13 year old daughter and 7 month old son. Up until earlier this year, I worked at a university, but since the spring I’ve been at home with my son, sewing whenever I can find the time. Swipe for some past projects if you’d like to see things that I make! I’m so grateful for the wonderful community of makers and supporters I’ve found here on Instagram!
Notebooks + coffee are like peas in a pod. Always devising new ideas together. We’ve brewed up a few ideas that we can’t wait to share with you. Grab a notebook + you’re favorite latte and start something new.

In almost every painting, I hit what I call ‘the ugly stage.' For me, that’s a super negative point where I feel like I won’t be able to pull my painting together. But I’ve learned that hitting that ugly stage is just part of my creative process. Instead of allowing the negativity and self-doubt to take over, I remember to stop trying to paint something perfect and return to having fun (whether that means starting a new painting, taking a walk or breaking free and completely covering up the parts of my painting I just don’t like). // Photo by @DaveKreisman
📣 Ok, so totally spur of the moment decision here! 📣 After catching up on several custom orders, I’ve decided to open my shop back up to provide a few more opportunities to shop small this holiday season. There are canvases and semi-custom journals available now with limited supply! I’m running a 50% off sale on the practice lettering sheets. Only $2! 🙌🏼 And tomorrow (fingers crossed 🤞🏼) I’ll have some ready made bibles!
Six cards means six opportunities to make someone's day! ✨ use as a Christmas/thank you to the hostess who held that fabulously festive party last weekend ✨send to your Mom & have your kids doodle inside ✨to your kiddos teacher before break (best when paired with a bottle of wine or chocolate) ✨be the office hero & pass this card around the office for the boss ✨to your sister who is with her in-laws this year for the holidays ✨to your parents who supply you & your roommates with a bounty full of groceries when they visit . The possibilities are endless, but the time to get this card before Christmas is not. Last day to place your order for domestic Christmas delivery is TOMORROW!
