My name is Naomi Shiek (pronounced CHIC).
I create papercut ketubot for private clients in the Nouveau Judaica style.

What is a ketubah, you ask? A KETUBAH is a decorative marriage covenant used and exhibited in Jewish, non-denominational and non-traditional weddings and commitment ceremonies wherein the couple's vows to each other are declared.

Summer garden ketubot

(Not so) new papercut ketubot over at the Urban Collective shop. These have been available for sale since July. A summer garden theme! I've been remiss in posting these since I was so overworked.

For the past five months I feel like I've been working non-stop, and no matter how many calendars, time limits, day-books and deadlines I set for myself, I can't switch off. The work is still very fun for me, but I am worried I will burn out if I won't find a way to work some structure into my life. I have no day schedule, no off days; I work from the moment I am up until I drop off, somewhere between 12-26 hour days. I work 8 hours on days when I'm "burned out". Am I a workaholic? The answer is a resounding yes. I am in serious need of withdrawal, anyone has any tips? What do you do when your hobby, your passion, is also your day job?



  1. im a graphic design student and i love papercutting, and i hope i'll be able to make a job out of it like you have one day. i just wanted to say i love your blog and your papercuts have inspired me so much!

    1. Thank you Danielle, you're so nice! I'm sure if you set your mind to it you will make it happen and I really looking forward to seeing your papercuts.

  2. No te conocía y acabo de quedar maravillada con tu exquisito y bello trabajo, felicidades!!
