About

I originally got started doing graphic design (and learning how all the design programs work) back when I was in college. After college, I started working at a company where a large majority of my job responsibilities centered around graphic design. This allowed me the opportunity to design a variety of different items and gave me the chance work extensively on perfecting my graphic design skills.

When I got engaged in 2007, I knew I wanted the Save the Dates, Invitations, Programs, etc. for our wedding to have a certain look and be original, without breaking the bank! After looking around (at what seemed like everywhere) I came to the conclusion that I was going to need to do the designing myself in order to get what I really wanted and keep within my budget. This is really when I discovered my love for designing invitations, stationary, cards, and other paper goods…

This is really when I discovered my love for designing invitations, stationary, cards, and other paper goods.

After our wedding was over, I started designing invitations, wedding programs, etc. for my friends and family. It was then that I decided to take my designs to Etsy and set up a shop so that I could share my high-quality designs with others who are looking for stylish paper goods on a budget!

But...(long before I knew anything about graphic design) my love of crafting in general started when I was a little girl. My mom always encouraged us to express ourselves through arts and crafts, so to this day I find that the art of creating something both fulfilling and enjoyable.

My husband still can't believe that I never saw several of the "classic movies" of our generation when I was younger, but that was because in my family watching movies wasn't a common pastime. Being crafty and creative on the other hand was.

We would spend our weekends in the backyard painting tennis shoes, tie dying t-shirts and loving every minute of it! I had the best childhood imaginable and those sunny days spent in the backyard have made me the person I am today.

As you can probably tell by now, doing anything creative and crafty has been a hobby of mine for as long as I can remember. I started this shop not only as a creative outlet for myself, but also as a way to provide charming and unique items to others.
