About

The arrival of our daughter, Kaia, sparked a desire to create. Hence the birth of PaperKake; for my baby Kakes.

My story is our story. A complexity of emotional rollercoasters involving countless doctors, ER visits, every health issue imaginable; never knowing what obstacle awaited us around every corner and step. Like many couples, we wanted a baby. Just one healthy baby, and why not us? Fast forward a few years and time was not on our side. After spending one evening with my girlfriends and sharing our plight, I received a text the next day. I was floored. A girlfriend since high school had offered us the unimaginable; to be our vessel. There are simply no words to describe that moment in which you realize that perhaps one day your dreams of parenthood may in fact be realized. One and a half years later, enter Kaia Scarlett. The birth of our beautiful baby girl. And in those first few minutes of life how she arrived into this world simply didn't matter. What counted was that she was here; in our arms. We had been bestowed with the ultimate gift of parenthood. All in part by one night, one text. My husband and I will be forever grateful to our carrier, Kristan, for giving us our one shot at being mommy and daddy.

The arrival of Kaia into my life turned my inner light back on. She sparked my need to create and craft. The limited edition hearts garland was made for her first Valentine's Day. A DIY photoshoot I had worked on for weeks. And so it began, the need to craft, the need to keep pushing myself to do more and be better. Every day I wonder why am I doing all of this? I have a full time job, wifey and mommy duties. Simply stated, I'm doing this for me. I found something I love creating, and sharing what I have made with the world is so exciting and fulfilling! I ignore the negative voice that likes to pop up every now and again telling me I can't do this. Because I can and I will!

I want to raise an empowered young woman and quickly realized I am her first female role model. I thank Etsy for giving me that opportunity and voice. A chance to not just talk the talk but show her that you can take an idea or dream and make it happen.

I could have never gone on this adventure and journey without the absolute love and support of my husband Justin. I'll never understand why he has placed his blind faith in me. He reminds me every day to 'think big' and believe 'world domination' is possible.

PaperKake for my baby Kakes; Kaia Scarlett, made possible by my hubby Justin.
