I LOVE creating handmade cards because I truly believe that a handmade card is a little, but significant gift to the receiver!

Before motherhood I had a small dried flower business called "The Queen's Tree" where I created beautiful topiary arrangements, wreathes and wedding favors.

I love VW's, Dave Matthews, gardens, flowers, romantic comedies, living in the countryside, my family, 80's music, Brittany's, and handmade things sold on Etsy!

Thanks for visiting my shop and reading my bio!
