About

Just Be Yourself Too at Praierie Papier Cottage!

I actually opened my first Etsy shop in 2007, but it wasn't until June 2012 that I started listing items for sale. Previously, I was a folk doll and mixed media artist, and I began to dabble with digital art. I fell in love with digital design, and enrolled in art school, majoring in graphic design. While I loved my classes, I realized that once again, I wanted to work for myself...and that's when I began designing digital papers and other printables. I love experimenting with different techniques in order to offer truly unique printables and digital scrapbook papers.

The summer of 2014 I decided to open my second Etsy shop...one that offered patterned 12 x 12 inch scrapbook papers, both "traditional" patterns as well as the unique and unexpected!

My "style" has always been distressed and grungy, and that style gradually made it's way into my digital art as well. Color and texture are my greatest muses.

I have a number of physical disabilities, including a decade long headache, that preclude me from seeking work outside my home. Opening my Etsy shop and working full-time from my home allows me to set my own hours.

Rarely a day goes by without creating something...I love what I do, and I love it when my art connects with my customers! My goal, in addition to creating, is always to provide the best in customer service.

Why did I name my shop "Just Be Yourself Too"? My first Etsy shop is named "Just Be Yourself," and the reason is this:

"I believe that each person has value, and that because we're unique, it's important to just be ourselves. When we embrace who we are and who we're created to be, we will find an inner joy and peace without striving to be what we're not."
