Ciao!

Thank you for stopping by my Etsy shop and I hope you like what you see.

I've always enjoyed crafting with paper and believe in using recycle materials as much as possible to create beautiful, useful items. As it is with many homes, the amount of paper that comes into our home on a daily basis is staggering. Using as much of this paper as possible, unique one of a kind fashionable products are created...... magazine pages, newspapers, ads, brochures, flyers and yes,even sheet music are incorporated into the products. Married to a musician, my husband and his musician friends have started saving their discarded sheet music for me to incorporate into my projects. Friends are also setting aside paper of any kind for possible use in the various projects that are created by Pipsqueek Creations…

I also enjoy cooking and believe that nothing is healthier and tastier than a home cooked meal using fresh, home grown and locally produced ingredients. When I was a child my family always maintained a vegetable garden and my mom cooked everything from scratch, something that is too time consuming with today's busy schedules.

For over 30 years I have practiced yoga, meditation and vegetarianism. I've traveled and lived in different countries for extended periods of time and presently maintain residency both in the United States and in Italy. My recipes come from my travel experiences and over 30 years of personal exploration. During my stay in different countries, I have owned and operated small food business in Asia and the United States; owned and ran a company in the Philippines which manufactured and exported high end handmade paper products; and owned a self sufficient organic farm in Italy. It has been a rewarding life journey from which I have learned many different skills which I now bring to Pipsqueek Creations and Pipsqueek Gourmet.

The food items are locally grown, the paper products are homemade and handmade, not assembled from wholesale lots. Each item is one of a kind piece which takes hours to create and made with great skill and attention to detail.
I hope you enjoy the products presented .

Be well, be kind and pay attention.
