A little about Thistle & Lore...

Welcome to Thistle & Lore! A Latina owned stationery studio hand crafting high-quality paper goods in Texas. Our catalog includes eco friendly cards, notebooks, and stickers inspired by the natural and supernatural.

Mindfully Made Products

I have always been the type of person that if I can make, I will make it! (or attempt to). I approach every aspect of this business no differently. Every card is designed and carefully made by me. My handmade cards and notebooks are individually made so that each one is a unique work of art ready to be gifted to your loved one, including yourself.

Paper Goods, Doing Good

When I decided to start my own business journey, I knew I wanted to be part of solutions and not problems. For me that includes the materials I use. Every item on Thistle & Lore's catalog is made from carefully sourced eco-friendly materials (I was especially excited to find 100% recycled sticker paper!) Another way T&L is making a positive impact is giving back. 5% of every purchase is donated to a different researched non-profit every few months. It is important to me that this small shop has a huge impact of our community and world one purchase at a time.

Hi! I’m Ariel, the creative mind behind Thistle & Lore, and I am absolutely thrilled to have you here. If you’re anything like me, you've always had a passion for crafting, creating, and exploring the wonders of imagination. From the first time I held a pair of scissors and some colorful paper, I knew that the joy of making beautiful things would forever be a part of my life.

My journey here has been filled with artistic adventures, from earning a BFA in Studio Arts to exploring the  worlds of photography and floral design. One of the most rewarding experiences was my time with the Peace Corps, where I had the incredible opportunity to teach art to young minds in Ghana. Witnessing the transformative power of creativity and its impact on people's lives inspired me to bring that magic back home and share it with the world through Thistle & Lore.

Thank you for being part of our journey at Thistle & Lore. Your support means the world to me, and I can't wait to see how our artful treasures make a difference in your life.
