Have you ever experienced it, when an idea grabbed you and won’t let go until you did something with it? Those are my “Needs to Note” moments.

I love paper. I love writing stories on them. I love making something useful out of them. I love finding beautiful designs and textures that often come with them.

Although “Needs to Note” is originally just a brand for my handmade paper items, I found out it takes all I’ve learned before to make them, the engineering to figure out the best format and process, the design to create the desire effects, and the writing to inspire more ideas and marketing.

I’ve recently surrendered to the fact that I’m much happier without too many things on my plate, so my ESTY shop is now closed.

But I may change, I may not. Either way, here is where I’ll record my history as it unfolds.

  1. Hello!

    I noticed that you were donating some of your Etsy proceeds to Japan relief. I’m helping a friend organize an Etsy-based fundraiser to benefit a Music Therapy Research Center in the hard-hit area of Miyagi Prefecture, Japan.

    I’d love it if you’d consider donating an item to our sale. All you’d have to do is send the information and up to 5 photos to us and we’d let you know if your item sold and who to send it to. We’d also reimburse you for shipping by Paypal or check.

    Here’s a bit more info:

    There is more information about the sale available at the store’s site:  

    You can keep up to date on our information, if you follow our Tumblr page:

    Or you can confirm your attendance on our Facebook event page:

    The sale starts April 25, 2011

    It benefits the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund, which will provide the funding for music therapy services to the clients of the Igari Music Therapy Research Center.

    The Igari Music Therapy Research Center provides music therapy and music education services to individuals with developmental disabilities and the elderly in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture.

    Thanks for your time!

    Best wishes,
    Mary Hayward
