Suzanne Furtado's Profile

About

Hello there! I'm Suzanne Furtado and I live in beautiful Bangalore, India with my two darling men; my best friend and wonderful husband and our lil superhero son. For as far back as I can remember, I've had some creative bees or the other, persistently buzzing in my head. I fell more deeply in love with my ex-boyfriend (the husband now, yes that went well) back then when he recognised that I would only be fulfilled in a creative career choice. To date, I've always pretty much given the bees a free rein, and have been by far the happier for it.

I am an absolute bookworm, and as a child I wanted nothing more than a book. Seriously, I'd get upset when people came with any other presents for my birthdays, and would tell my Mum to please let everyone know in advance that I just wanted books :D I think I get my creative genes from my dearest Mum most definitely and they've been…

Seriously, I'd get upset when people came with any other presents for my birthdays, and would tell my Mum to please let everyone know in advance that I just wanted books :D I think I get my creative genes from my dearest Mum most definitely and they've been sharpened by an imagination that's been running riot with all those books for quite a while now.

Owning and designing for 3 stores, I work with a lot of varied ideas and inspiration. Am thrilled that The_______lets me explore my love for color and whimsy at a whole different level. The design process is the biggest high for me. It's a treat thinking up new ideas, jotting down loads of scribbles in my little brown book and another umpteen notes on my computer. Sometimes I start creating my designs after I've had the ideas wander around a bit in my mind's eye, and sometimes I have an epiphany where I instantly start to create a new design without any aforementioned scribble or note!

My work is all about stylish and original yet affordable design. DIY Printables to set your special occasion a class apart without breaking the bank. This vision applies across the board for my 3 DIY Printable design stores here on Etsy, The Squiggle Tree, The ScarletSage Tree ~ for Wedding Invitations & Decor http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheScarletSageTree
and The Indian Paper Forest ~ for Indian-inspired Wedding Invitations & Decor http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheIndianPaperForest

I hope you enjoy exploring my stores. And may you find something exactly like what you have in mind, or on the other hand, nothing like you imagined :)
And last but not the least ~ Thank you for loving what I do, and thereby, letting me do what I love.
