About

Welcome to my little place in the internet community. I suppose this is the place where you would like to know a little about me, so here it goes.

I am currently living in Portland, Oregon (on the outskirts anyway) and I am a very passionate person for paper and music. I grew up in Southern California where I was continuously involved with crafts and music. My Mom is a very crafty lady and she was always encouraging me to express the artist within. When I was really young I remember making some greeting cards and trying to get my Mom to sell them at the craft shows. They were not very good, but my Mom was still very encouraging even though we did not sell them. Later on I decided to pursue my life in music. I completed my bachelors degree in California and my masters degree in Texas majoring in clarinet performance. I began teaching full-time, but was feeling a little unfulfilled…

Welcome to my little place in the internet community. I suppose this is the place where you would like to know a little about me, so here it goes.

I am currently living in Portland, Oregon (on the outskirts anyway) and I am a very passionate person for paper and music. I grew up in Southern California where I was continuously involved with crafts and music. My Mom is a very crafty lady and she was always encouraging me to express the artist within. When I was really young I remember making some greeting cards and trying to get my Mom to sell them at the craft shows. They were not very good, but my Mom was still very encouraging even though we did not sell them. Later on I decided to pursue my life in music. I completed my bachelors degree in California and my masters degree in Texas majoring in clarinet performance. I began teaching full-time, but was feeling a little unfulfilled. Once my now husband popped the question a whole new world of opportunity opened up. It began with our attempts at having a less expensive wedding. I first made my own "save-the-date" cards that came out amazing. I got so many great reviews I realized I was starting to expose my talent with paper again (except I was now older and wiser and better). Next I made the invitations and they came out even better than the "save-the-date." Then I made all the programs, name tags, party-favor boxes, and anything else that involved paper. It was so much fun! I even made my own wedding album to cut costs with the photographer. That is when I decided to pursue this passion for paper.

So here I am in Oregon now with my husband, daughter and dog enjoying my paper business. If you don't find me in my little studio you'll find me playing with my daughter or tending to the garden.

I just love buying and selling on etsy! I hope you enjoy my shop and stop by often!
