About

Blooming with handmade love...

In November 2010, a longtime career in the fashion industry came to a close when my corporate job was uprooted from California to New York. We love living on the Monterey Peninsula & remained here which resulted in my layoff. I began to contemplate the possibilities of following my heart, tapping into my creative passion & nurturing dormant dreams into fruition.

For many years, I handcrafted notecards & invitations for family & friends & enjoyed collage as stress relieving, spirit lifting pastimes. I wondered if I could ever transform these artistic hobbies into something more? My layoff prompted an answer of "yes!"

I launched Plumeria Papercraft here on Etsy during the summer of 2011. Shortly afterward, however, I was diagnosed with a rare form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. I am grateful beyond words that I am now in remission. I'm also grateful that across 20 months of blood transfusions & chemotherapy treatments, I was able to keep taking baby steps with my creative endeavors.

My handmade designs begin with a bit of inspiration - the sea, flora & fauna, the sweetness & whimsy in every day life, even the paper itself. I sketch simple images, turn them into templates, trace, cut with scissors, occasionally wield a hole punch or paper cutter, assemble, glue & embellish...always made with love! My assortment of offerings includes notecards, invitations, gift tags & bags, bookmarks, journals, memo pads, mini folders, paper ornaments, seasonal décor, curated "bits of inspiration" kits for DIY enthusiasts & collaged artwork.

As Plumeria Papercraft continues to blossom, I hope my heartfelt work will connect with you & bring you much enjoyment!

In addition to my shop here on Etsy, my work is available in these California locations:
Bella's Studio, Monterey
American Crafts & Jewels, Carmel
Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula Gift Shop
The Quail & Olive, Carmel Valley
Pebble Beach Market at The Lodge, Pebble Beach

I also offer card making & papercrafting workshops for adults & after-school enrichment classes for children, & I'm a trained SoulCollage(R) facilitator, offering workshops in this creative, intuitive & insightful process as well.

I warmly welcome you to Plumeria Papercraft and hope you enjoy your shopping experience here!

Plumeria Papercraft is my leap of faith! After many years of handcrafting notecards and invitations for family and friends, I “leaped” in 2011, launching my online Etsy shop, and since then, I’ve been working toward fulfilling this longtime creative dream and in the process, pursuing a healthier balance between my career, motherhood (the plumeria flower is known as “pua melia” in Hawaii, and Melia is our daughter’s name) and mindful living.

I’ve always loved the pleasant discovery of a letter or notecard tucked in the mailbox or receiving a handwritten sentiment in person. Such thoughtful gestures allow us to pause and feel connected amidst our busy lives. I hope my heartfelt and handmade creations can inspire more of these meaningful connections.

I developed an eye for design from my former career in the fashion industry and my passion for the arts, and I have always been drawn to the aesthetic and personal nature of handcrafted treasures. I sketch my own images, create templates, then carefully trace, cut and assemble each item by hand. Much of my inspiration stems from nature and my love of the sea, and whimsical ideas often pop up from “snapshots” of life’s simple moments as well as our daughter’s imagination. Of course, the paper itself inspires me, too!

My work has been featured in the 2012 issue of Better Homes and Gardens Holiday Crafts and on a variety of blogs including an appearance as a guest blogger on author and motivational coach Gail McMeekin’s Creative Success website.

In addition to papercrafting, I enjoy creating mixed media art and dabbling in other creative forms. I’m a regular participant in the healing art program offered by Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula which has been powerfully therapeutic in my personal journey as a cancer survivor. I share this healing art exploration and contemplations on creative, mindful living via my blog, Paper And Ponder.

Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting Plumeria Papercraft!
