✭✭✭✭✭ "The pictures on line are awesome but when you physically receive the canvas you are just blown away! I couldn't be happier with my decision to work with Amanda. She must have given me about 7 or more proofs and gone back and forth with me over colors. She was a pleasure to work with and I HIGHLY recommend her to everyone!

About Me:
Hi, I'm Amanda :) My shop was inspired by a love of design. I could spend hours perfecting a design to make it just right. When a friend introduced me to etsy- it was love at first sight, and its really been a "happily ever after" ever since. I love the personal touch that etsy offers- I love how I can get to know my clients, interact and relate to them.

So, just who is that girl behind the computer screen? My friends will tell you I’m down to earth, caring and creative. My little ones will tell you that I am the best mommy in the whole word (and who am I to argue?). I am a mom first and a graphic designer second. Some call me “modern day Martha” because I like to do any and all things creative. I have the unique talent of picking anything up and being pretty good at it; but am not afraid to work hard at it to get it just right. Yes, you read between the lines; I am a perfectionist too. Sometimes that is a good thing and sometimes it’s a challenge.

I was born an entrepreneur. At the age of 18 I opened my first “official” business (all lemonade stands, shoveling snow business’ and bracelets at recess aside). By 23, I married the ‘boy’ I went to prom with, opened my second business; a national franchise. At 25, I had my first little one. Then at 26 & ½ had my second (yes just 18 months apart!). At 29, I had my third child, and then turned 30! Presently, I own a Design Firm and am a busy mom of three little ones.

So what do I want to do by 40? I want to vacation in the Cayman Islands (the best place on earth) and buy my $1,000,000 catamaran that I can sail wherever I want (guess I should learn to sail....Oh, yea, my friends will also tell you I am ambitious too ;) Most importantly, I want to teach my children that they can accomplish anything that they put their minds to. PaperRamma has been my dream come true.

I'm always here to answer questions so please reach out. I'm building a human company... not an automated one. When you purchase with us, you are starting a one-on-one graphic design experience. What does that mean? A one-on-one graphic design experience means that you will work one-on-one with a real life graphic designer. Someone on the other side of the screen who may even share the same interests or is going through the exact same special life moment as you. Some of our designers are getting married, planning nurseries or looking for the perfect gift for their family & friends, so they can really relate.

Or if you just want to say hi- I'm I'm an eighties baby, shout out if you remember things the way I did: Punky Brewster, blossom, saved by the bell, cassette tapes, jem, scooby doo, ellios pizza, caldor, pound puppies, 90210, big hair, bigger frames, fraggle rock, karate kid, rainbow brite, rubik cube, smurfs, strawberry shortcake, super mario, gameboy, walkman, teenage mutant ninja turtles, Madonna, Michael Jackson, magna doodle, cabbage patch kids, inspector gadget, double dare game, glowworms... bringing back the good life.

Your Design Guru offers you unlimited proofs and changes, can custom color your artwork to match your decor, and is even known to give out the occasional relationship advice (really, its happened! our designers are human, not robots, & may even be planning their own wedding or nursery!
