About Me

I started paper crafting about 9 years ago when I decided to do my own DIY wedding. I realized how much I enjoyed making my wedding stationary, favor boxes, welcome gifts, and coordinating it all. I self taught myself by watching a ton of youtube videos....I stumbled across some craft fair idea videos and that's when it really began. I share this hobby with my sister. I do not have a website. We do local craft fairs. I am married, no children, unless you count our two cats. The cats came with him, and he was right I do love my furry children.

Favorite Music

I'm pretty picky when it comes to music...but anyone who knows me knows that I am a HUGE PRINCE fan. Greatest ever.

Favorite Crafts

Paper crafts - I love 3D paper crafts i.e.. treat holders, gift bags and boxes packaging, and handmade embellishments. I do make cards as well. I watched a lot of swap reveal videos on You Tube, and I thought wow that's incredible I would love to join.

Because my favorite musician is PRINCE, clearly anything purple is all right with me. I do like neutrals and SAGE green as well. I don't too much care for pink or brights.

Regarding crafts ... I am not really into mixed media or rather the look of it. It's kinda grungy if that's a word. I like more of a scrapbook design. Mats, stamped images, sentiments, embellishments. I admire all the work done for Shabby Chic, but it's not something that I do. I do like different textures for interest. I like simple, clean designs. But I do not want to limit anyone's creativity by my dislikes.

Please Do Not Send

Please do not send the following items:


Loose stickers, reward stickers

Washi samples

Children crafts Kiddie designs, like monsters, toys, cartoons ect (Lawn Fawn Critters or similar stamped images are ok). I just do not want any craft/item for children. Not sure how to explain it...but I received a lot of Valentine's for children. Not really something I would ever use.
