About PacificaGraceStudio

Sales 223
On Etsy since 2011

Ex-corporate finance nerd starting a new handmade adventure.

I launched Pacifica Grace Studio after working in corporate finance in the high-tech industry for over 20 years. I resigned from my full-time job in early Sept 2018. I needed a change, because my heart was no longer in my corporate job. I have always been a crafty person and love making things with my hands. I've been on creative teams for scrapbooking and cardmaking. I also enjoy knitting and crocheting. I love owning my own business because I get to wear many hats. I am the maker, shipper, customer support, creative director, photographer, graphic designer, the accounting/finance dept, the procurement specialist, product tester, marketing dept, business planner, and copywriter. It is never boring!

I named my business Pacifica Grace Studio because this combination of words hold deep meaning for me. Grace is my mom's name. I lost her to cancer in 2007 and my life hasn’t been the same since. It's my way of remembering and honoring her. Also, the meaning of my Chinese name is grace. It's actually two characters that mean "grace & mercy" together. Pacifica is derived from the Latin root for the word "peace". Plus I live near the Pacific Ocean. Both words have individual meaning to me, but together they mean "grace & peace", and who couldn't use more grace and peace everyday in their lives!
