Cozumel Greeting Cards

More Than Just Paper.

Give a colorful, delightful gift inspired by Cozumel!

In My Shop, you’ll find handmade gifts and original art inspired by beautiful, vibrant Cozumel: greeting cards, bookmarks, acrylic paintings, notebooks, journals, junk journals, paper art from recycled materials, mixed media art, linoleum prints, art prints, and a few surprises here and there. No two items are exactly the same!

(Note that some items are only available in Cozumel.)

How It Works

Purchase your greeting card or gift.

If you’re in Cozumel, check your email to coordinate your pick-up date/time.

If you’re anywhere else in the world, check your email for order confirmation.

Send me a pic of your new art for a discount on a future purchase.

But aren’t all of these gifts just paper?

\

No way, Jose! 

Paper is full of texture, color, words, meaning, history, and JOY! There’s so many things we can do with it, and it’s been a part of our lives for thousands of years.  

Besides paper-based gifts, I also make acrylic paintings on canvas. Canvas is a fiber, like paper, so it still fits in here, right?

….No? …Hello? …Buellar? 

Yes, of course paintings count! All delightful gifts and ideas are welcome here. Have an idea of something you’d like me to make for you? Send me a message!

You’ll also find the occasional tote bag, accessory, and other fun ideas I come up with. Cozumel is full of vibrance and character, so I’m always inspired to make new things to share. If you want to stay in the loop on my latest creations and shenanigans, it’s a great reason to join my newsletter.

 

No Boring Gifts Here!

\

All of my cards and gifts are handmade with love in my home studio in Cozumel! Most of the supplies are locally sourced too. Like notebooks made from toilet paper rolls. Or bookmarks made from sargassum. 

They do not stink. #guaranteed

About The Art

Each design is inspired by one of my original paintings or print work. I paint ideas or things I see around Cozumel, and they all have their own story. You can read about each of them in their description in The Shop. I hope you find one that makes you smile!

About Packages

Looking to buy more than one greeting card? I offer package discounts on sets of 10 and 25. I also offer packages for events, holidays, or special occasions, based on quantity. Send me an email at [email protected] to chat about it.

Artist
Autumn Toñita

My name is Autumn, but everyone calls me Toñita, a Cozumeleña nickname given to me years ago. The name stuck, and now “Toñita” has all kinds of wild island adventures.

I moved to Cozumel with my kids and my little dog Hippie 11 years ago, and I’ve been painting the island ever since. I’ve also painted over 40 murals, and if you drive around the island, you might spot a few!

I love working on special projects, murals, mixed media, linoleum prints, handbound notebooks, junk journals, special gifts, and commissioned art, so if you have an idea in mind, send me a message, and let’s connect!

  • 😴 In my Sleeping Beauty era. 🥰

I’ve been sleeping 10-12 hours a night for the last week or so. I was scared I was getting sick but no… I feel ok. In trauma healing, it’s taught that when you finally feel safe, your body needs a lot of rest to re-set and recalibrate. Letting peace be the base state of being instead of fight-or-flight.

A couple of big things happened recently. Good things in the end. But they required a lot of energy and strength to resolve.. now, there’s nothing really stressful for me to deal with…

I still have all of my responsibilities- more now than ever. But it all feels like normal life challenges, not trauma-inducing stressors. Not survival-mode. No emergencies. Nothing is broken. No one in my house is suffering emotionally because of someone else’s manipulation and aggression (it’s actually been 6 months without that and I’m so grateful for the peace in mine and the kids’ lives now). 

With my mind not being occupied by how to handle shitty situations, I have more space to think about what’s next for me, for us... what do we want to do as a family… what do the kids want or need as individuals… how can I be more supportive of their interests… how can I prepare Iris for going off to college in just 2 years… 

I guess all that will come in time. But for now, lots of rest… 💛

  • ♥️ In my little red sports car era ♥️

🥹Crying happy tears. It was a long 7 years with the Jeep, which helped me through a move, property management, and island tours. 

But things are different now, and the Jeep cost a fortune to maintain. So 3 weeks ago, I told my Scooter Gang friends it was time to sell it even though I had noooo idea how I’d do it and how I’d get something newer/safer/smaller/more efficient for us. I didn’t even have an idea of what I wanted. But I knew it was time. My friends agreed. We cheered 🥂and then the magic began, one thing at a time. 

🔮It really was incredible how every little detail came together perfectly, and here we are, less than 3 weeks later.

It’s the beginning of some exciting changes around here!!! 🥹♥️☀️🏝️

I’m an artist. I paint, write, and create things as part of my process no matter where I’m at emotionally. Maybe I’ll share more when I’m in a happy place because light likes to shine. And maybe I don’t share as much of my work when I’m low because some processes need to happen in darkness and silence. 

But Im always creating something. And I want to remind myself that what I create on my dark days is just as meaningful as what I create on my sunshiny days even if (maybe especially if?) no one ever sees it. 🖤☀️
  • 🏝️ Today I’m back into my normal routine. After 2 weeks of sickness, sad days, and mental health days… and a week off for family time (which gave me lots of time to play and enjoy)… 
I feel ready to move into the next season of my life… the sadness is still there. Always…
But I’m feeling more at peace. 
And I’m back. Back to the gym, to work, to my responsibilities. But also back to my friends, to my art, to my projects.
Maybe I shouldn’t say “back” because I can only go forward… anyway…

🏝️ Today I’m back into my normal routine. After 2 weeks of sickness, sad days, and mental health days… and a week off for family time (which gave me lots of time to play and enjoy)… 
I feel ready to move into the next season of my life… the sadness is still there. Always…
But I’m feeling more at peace. 
And I’m back. Back to the gym, to work, to my responsibilities. But also back to my friends, to my art, to my projects.
Maybe I shouldn’t say “back” because I can only go forward… anyway…
