Nice to see you! I’m Yvonne Bashor.
I’m a lifelong artist and crafter from the Pacific Northwest. I am often looking for creative inspiration in nature and found objects. I enjoy creating art and crafting in many forms, but my work almost always involves paper, often in the form of cards, mixed media, art journaling, printmaking, painting, and drawing. I love working with stamps and stencils, and carving my own stamps. I share my ideas and teach techniques at Runaway Art and Craft Studio in Salem, and always enjoy taking workshops from others as well. There is so much to learn and explore! It is important to support our local stores. Having resources right in our community is so valuable for community. Shop local.
If you are interested in seeing more of my work, please visit me @penguinpapers on Instagram. My feed is embedded on the right-hand column here, so you can see the most recent posts there at any time.
Thanks for visiting and I look forward to hearing from you.

I stumbled on your blog via your C&S submission #143. I was just rolling over the samples and penguin papers came to my attention. I’m curious as to the reason for your blog name. Are you a penguin fanatic as well as a stamper – like myself? I’ve been stamping for 25+ years and co-owned a stamp store for 7 years…waaay before it was so trendy. In regards to the penguins, my goal is to see all species in the wild. So far I have half of the list done and will be going to Australia to see the smallest of the penguins this summer. Oh, BTW I live in Calgary, Canada so not too far from you.
