Very nice work and nice individual designs. Thank you!
Some teens are trying to sneak out of the house, I'm trying to get out of the country!
What started out as a quest to visit Australia as part of an educational trip from 'Peoples to Peoples' has morphed into so much more. As a self-taught artisan and high school student, I've always felt a need to forge my own path. When the opportunity arose to travel to Australia, I knew it was beyond my budget. Instead of asking my parents to fund the trip, I decided to use my own two hands to create the future I could only imagine.
Even as a child, I was always crafty. While other kids busied themselves with toys or video games, I could often be found painting or creating imaginative artworks. As I grew into a teen, I began experimenting with making wire bookmarks and soon evolved to paper quilling. To me, there is just something so magical about using paper to create unique works of functional art.
After opening up my Etsy Shop, "CraftsLaughsbyME" I was touched by all of the customers who bought one of my handmade creations and went the extra step to cheer me on as I get closer and closer to buying my own ticket to Australia in two years! My Etsy journey has brought some of the most remarkable people into my life and, when I board that plane, I feel like they'll all be traveling with me! For 22 days I'll learn about Australian history, culture, and people. I will live with the Maori, and my favorite, snorkel with marine biologists at the Great Barrier Reef!
Each item in my store is handmade from only the finest materials using precise craftsmanship techniques. All of my wire bookmarks are unique, long-lasting and will add a whimsical element to your reading adventures. My paper quill greeting cards are made with the utmost care and attention to detail to add layers of character to your special occasions.
Custom orders are encouraged as I love to collaborate with my clients, one-on-one, to fulfill their specific design needs.
Step into my world and get ready to enjoy a little 'CraftsLaughsbyME'!

My bookmarks are hand formed from 20 gauge non-tarnishing wires in silver, gold, copper, and antique brass tones. The copper wire will eventually age to a dark rosy patina. Every bookmark is carefully hardened after being crafted. These are made free form, please allow for some slight variation in appearances. If you have any questions, I'm just an email or convo away!
