Welcome to Paper Pretties & More. My name is Caren and I am the owner of this little boutique. I am fortunate to live in the beautiful state of Maine with my family and blessed to be able to pursue my passion of creating.
I have worn many hats in my 48 year old lifetime. Right out of high school, I worked in corporate America making multi-media presentations for high level sales people.
After 7+ years of working in an office environment, I took an opportunity to pursue a career in something I'd always been interested in - cosmetology. I put myself through school and worked as a hair designer in the city of Portland, Maine for about 7 years. When my daughter was 18 months, I decided to stay at home full time - that was about 10 years ago now.
It was around that time I decided to design and create scrapbook albums for people. After selling locally for a couple years, I decided to open Paper Pretties & More (formerly My Scrapbook Studio). It has been 6 years since opening my little shop and my passion for creating continues to evolve.
You'll still find scrapbook albums of all shapes, sizes and subjects but you'll also find tooth fairy kits, advent calendars and holiday décor such as felt wreathes and more! You never know what you might find here.
I've heard the expression "do what you love and the money will follow". With the creation of Paper Pretties & More, I guess I'll see if that is really true!

All items in my boutique are designed and handcrafted by me in my smoke-free studio.
