About Paperramma:
Welcome to Paperamma! My shop was inspired by my love of design. I could spend hours designing a card or art print to make it just right. As a graphic designer, for years I have made my own invitations and prints- from my wedding invitations to my children's birth announcements- and everyone has always complimented me on how beautiful and unique they are. When a friend introduced me to etsy- it was a match made in heaven! I have always wanted to have my own studio and now I can follow my passion and design cards, art prints and more for everyone to enjoy. I can hear the oohs and ahhs from your relatives already ;)

About Me:
Hello, I’m Amanda. :) I live in Shelton, CT. My friends will tell you I’m down to earth, caring and creative. My little ones will tell you that I am the best mommy in the whole word (and who am I to argue?). I am a mom first and a graphic designer second. Some will call me “modern day Martha” because I like to do any and all things creative. I have the unique talent of picking anything up and being pretty good at it; but am not afraid to work hard at it to get it just right. Yes, you read between the lines; I am a perfectionist too. Sometimes that is a good thing and sometimes it’s a challenge.

I've been born a entrepreneur. At the age of 18 I opened my first “official” business (all lemonade stands, shoveling snow business’ and bracelets at recess aside). By 23, I married the ‘boy’ I went to prom with, opened my second business; a national franchise. At 25, I had my first little one. Then at 26 & ½ had my second (yes just 18 months apart!). After years of enjoying making ads for my business’, creating invitations and birth announcements for my kids and just loving all things artistic, I taught myself graphic design and opened Paperramma. It was then that I realized that I LOVE graphic design and it was what I was born to do and made it official by following my dreams and going back to school. At 29, I had my third child, and then turned 30! Presently, I own two online design studios and freelance for a major company.

So what do I want to do by 40? I want to vacation in the Cayman Islands (the best place on earth) and buy my $1,000,000 catamaran that I can sail wherever I want (guess I should learn to sail....Oh, yea, my friends will also tell you I am ambitious too ;) Most importantly, I want to teach my children that they can accomplish anything that they put their minds too. I would like to be happy no matter where I end up at 40. :)

Paperramma has been a dream come true.
