Welcome to Homegrown Creativity - Paper Customized for Your Business

Who designs, creates, and prints everything you see here? Me! Marie!

My life today is because of Etsy and my shop here. Without my business I wouldn't be home with my kids, without my business I would have been forced into the job market after being a stay at home mom for 5 years, without my business I wouldn't have kept the life we were accustom to when my husband died suddenly in December 2011.

Every day I realize how grateful I am to have my business, and while we suffered a tragedy I have so much to be grateful for. That gratefulness leads to my business, I work hard daily to provide the best customer service, attention to detail, and the best possible customer experience each and every time you…

My life today is because of Etsy and my shop here. Without my business I wouldn't be home with my kids, without my business I would have been forced into the job market after being a stay at home mom for 5 years, without my business I wouldn't have kept the life we were accustom to when my husband died suddenly in December 2011.

Every day I realize how grateful I am to have my business, and while we suffered a tragedy I have so much to be grateful for. That gratefulness leads to my business, I work hard daily to provide the best customer service, attention to detail, and the best possible customer experience each and every time you purchase from me. I strive for perfection, that perfection has lead to a huge percentage of my customers being repeat customers, customers who return time and time again. I want you happy!

How about some personal details about me... my husband wrote this bio for my shop before he passed away (I just update the kids ages).

*★* Marie Dyson lives in the small town of Surprise, Arizona with her 7 year old son, and 3 year old baby girl. Up until 2007, Marie worked as a software engineer in the aerospace industry. During that time, she practiced jewelry and bead making as a hobby. Following the birth of her son, Marie chose to become a full-time stay-at-home mom...a calling she considers to be "the best job ever!"

Being a stay-at-home mother has allowed Marie much more time to practice, perfect and expand her skill in making handmade jewelry. Marie's creative passion is in making one-of-a-kind jewelry. Her styles range from rustic and organic to refined and elegant. Expanding on her jewelry business she started designing paper earring cards to display her jewelry, once she discovered a separate market for her cards the business and her love of paper just grew from there! *★*

- - - ♥ My husband passed away suddenly Dec. 21, 2011. I can't say enough wonderful things about him as a man, father and husband. Tears are shed daily for him. He wrote my profile here on Etsy for me, just one of the 1000's of things he did to support me in all that I did. He often helped me give creative names to my jewelry, praised my work and just supported me 100%. Thank You to the love of my life I miss you beyond words but know I am going to make it because of the love and support you provide myself and our family. I love you Jay! - Love Marie ♥ - - -
