M Ann M's Profile

About

My mom says that when I was a little girl I was always finding tiny things and putting them in my pocket. Even at a young age I was very creative with my findings and I had a great imagination. I remember taking wing nuts from my father's tool room and gluing them to the heads of my Little People toys - they looked like Mickey Mouse ears.

As I got older I developed a desire to share and sell my creations. I tried my hand at everything including cloth dolls, customized pens, dried flower arrangements, wood carving and mosaics. For several years, I successfully designed and sold greeting cards through an excellent wholesaler to specialty stores like Neiman Marcus, Papyrus and others.

My mom says that when I was a little girl I was always finding tiny things and putting them in my pocket. Even at a young age I was very creative with my findings and I had a great imagination. I remember taking wing nuts from my father's tool room and gluing them to the heads of my Little People toys - they looked like Mickey Mouse ears.

As I got older I developed a desire to share and sell my creations. I tried my hand at everything including cloth dolls, customized pens, dried flower arrangements, wood carving and mosaics. For several years, I successfully designed and sold greeting cards through an excellent wholesaler to specialty stores like Neiman Marcus, Papyrus and others.

Of all my creations, I have come to favor anything made of paper. I am completely self taught when it comes to my paper techniques but I gain knowledge and support from other like-minded artists throughout the internet. Keeping a journal on hand at all times also keeps designs fresh and unique by sketching my next planned paper project.

I sell my creations through craft shows and online through three shops on Etsy. At M Ann M Creations, you will find works including paper art dolls, paper mache hot air balloons, jack in the boxes and other playful decorative folk art - all made of paper. These pieces are usually one-of-a-kind. At my Watermelon Party shop you will find paper party gifts and decor including cupcake toppers, cupcake carousels and my very popular (and super fun to make!) Surprise Balls. And at Sweet Girl Sweet Boy you will find cute miniature scenes based on an inspiring or memorable quote.

All of my paper art is created with attention given to details, quality and professionalism. I welcome custom orders to keep up with the challenge of creativity and making something different every time. I truly enjoy making my art and I hope to share it with anyone who is looking for something unique, innovative and fun.
