A young girl unapologetically decides to focus all her energy on the things that make her the happiest.

A young girl knows the world is calling for her, but she decides to make today a “me” day, focusing all her energies on a list of things that make her happy. And, oh what a list it is! She’ll pack the day lunching with her teddy bear, brewing wild teas, and even working on her warrior pose. Combined with gorgeous handmade collage work by the founders of Finland’s Polka Paper.



When EV Starkey was a kid she lived near Sherwood Forest in England, where she made forts, mud potions, and hamster hotels, and climbed trees until way past bedtime. Now she lives in Brooklyn, NY where she still climbs trees and runs the Bellport Children’s Festival.



Polka Paper is the art team of Finns Kristiina Haapalainen and Sami Vähä-Aho, who create illustrations and produce stationery. Their garden- and nature-themed illustrations are based on their life in Kimito Island, Finland, where they work and live with their three children in an old wooden house with a wild garden.
