Paula and Bette's Profile

About

Welcome to our shop! We are Paula and Bette, a daughter and mother both born in September – under the sign of Virgo.

"I am Paula, a single mom living in NJ and struggling to raise my preteen daughter who is convinced she knows everything about everything. She gathers acorn caps and pine cones to add to our Two Virgos Mixed-Media Packs. (She is closer to the ground than we are.) When asked to be a part of our shop, we told her no because she is not a Virgo .She responded, 'Then change the shop name to Two Virgos and a Taurus.'"

Welcome to our shop! We are Paula and Bette, a daughter and mother both born in September – under the sign of Virgo.

"And I am Bette, who after a long career in travel and meeting planning along with raising a family is spending my retirement years in South Florida. I enjoy collaborating with my daughter Paula which sparks my creativity and gives me a sense of accomplishment.

Although we both have pursued our artistic interests separately, our creative paths have often crossed. Paula’s fascination with Collage, Art Journaling, Mixed Media and Altered Art and Bette’s love of Fiber Arts, Painting and Beading have inspired a mutual and successful collaboration.

For many years of shopping near home as well as on our travels we scoured art, craft and bead shows, flea markets, thrift stores, art festivals and tucked-away shops collecting handmade specialty papers and precious treasures.

Paula then recognized the immense creative potential of using the bounty of natural materials native to our own backyards and neighborhoods. Living in two different eco-systems we decided to add our own “harvested” elements to our packs.

We both agree that many art journaling and mixed media artists feel the way we do: frustrated over having to buy components for our projects in larger quantities than we needed.. This thought prompted us to become a source where other artists could buy low-cost packs of eclectic “bits and pieces” for their projects.

We handpick, assemble, and offer just the right amount of artistic elements in pleasing combinations of colors and textures we know will spark your imagination! No two packets are alike.

Whatever your creative passion, Two Virgos encourages you to let go,
experiment, express yourself, and most of all, have fun!
