My name is Hope Johnson. I am a letterpress printmaker, wife and mother, and small-town lover. My fancy is found in the arts and anything handmade. My drive is given to me by the Good Lord, my precious family, and loads of caffeine.

THE little BLUE CHAIR finds its place in the sentimental details of life that resonate with us all. Designing and creating an assortment of pieces, from gift enclosures to wedding stationery, to the most elaborate first birthday invitations, THE little BLUE CHAIR aims to generate these sort of feel good moments for its clients. Currently, I run the shop as a one-woman-show, pulling inspiration from my daily small town life, with loads of elbow grease and love.
