About

Discovering my creative side....

I've never thought of myself as an artistic person. (My children made fun of my stick figures....)

Now that my youngest is in college, my middle child is married and in the Navy and my oldest is well established in her nursing career, I find myself with enough free time to dabble in arts and crafts.

I started out by attending craft shows and found a woman with a blender who was on a mission to recruit a new generation of paper-makers. I ended up working for her for a time, helping out at craft shows... and completely fell in love with papermaking and paper crafts.

Once I realized that I was (at least a little) artistic, I started to explore other areas of the wonderful world of arts and crafts. The more different crafts I tried, the more confidence I gained in my abilities....

and that's how I came to start a shop on Etsy.

Welcome to my shop. Come in, browse around. Feel free to ask questions....and thanks for stopping by.

    After spending 29 years raising three terrific children (the last 18+ as a widowed, single mom).. I was finally able to quit the car pool, forget about school bus schedules and packing lunches and begin to explore my creative side.

Shop policies

Last updated on June 5, 2012
Every item in our shop is lovingly handcrafted in a smoke-free, animal-free environment. We endeavor to upcycle and recycle whenever possible.

Our handmade paper is crafted sheet-by-single-sheet using scrap paper, junk mail, botanicals and leftover herbs from the kitchen cabinet.

We carefully source fabrics and other supplies with an eye towards using remnants and other items that might have been discarded into a landfill.

The books we use in our book purses are primarily from garage sales and thrift stores. The book pages are NEVER discarded. We either bind the book and donate it to a charitable organization, or use the pages in papermaking.

When it is necessary to purchase materials, we make every attempt to buy American!
