H E L L O !
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.

In the Studio | This Summer Snapshots



This summer truly went in a rush. I'm shifting through photos and thinking of all the new ketubot I've yet to share here, and it's a bit overwhelming. There's a lot more to it than I realized and a lot more to do than this time last year. Which is pretty neat, my business is a business and it's growing, thankfully. But I'm a bit behind. Inventory control, accounting, staff management, client communication, editing and printing, not to mention actually papercutting and shipping orders - that's a lot. Feels like WOODLAND PAPERCUTS is outgrowing me, and I'm still only one woman. I read a lot about time management and how to keep your home business in balance with your personal life, but I have to admit I can't bring myself to practice any of it.

I am thinking of taking a few days break in November, though. It's a vague sort of concept, I don't think I'll actually go through with it, but who knows.
