This years Holiday Hashtag Contest was sparked by a gift given to Smocked Auctions by Gray Sea Paper Co. The owner, Kathleen Lange, is a regular SA customer and felt inspired by our looks. We just absolutely fell in love with her watercolor portrait of our models in their monogrammed Graycen Jumpers and thought you all might love it, too.
"I have two young daughters of my own who frequently wear SA for holidays and special events. The outfits are so sweet, so you know it makes for a great photo. Espcially when they're in matching outfits! As one of your instagram followers, I saw the photo of the girls in the jumper in all different colors posed so perfectly, I immediately knew it would be a perfect watercolor portrait!" - Kathleen Lange

See Kathleen Lange's story below, owner of Gray Sea Paper Co.
By day I'm a working mother of 2 girls (with #3 on the way this Spring) doing marketing and communication for a large financial institution. In my "free" time, I make my paper pretties!
I am a graphic designer by trade, but prefer to use "glorified doodler/illustrator". I originally just applied my artwork towards stationery products: wedding invitations, stationary, etc. In early 2016, I started practicing on subjects from photos and just kept going with it because I enjoyed it so much. Seeing as friends and family were in love and interested I started to focus on incorporating it to all aspects of my work and started showcasing on instagram. And so Gray Sea Paper Co. was born! Gray Sea Paper Co stems from my first born's name (Gracie) and living near the beach (The Jersey Shore).
