My Little Adventure
After I graduated from Memphis College of Art, I continued working as a Visual Merchandiser for a local boutique. I loved my job, but without school, I missed having my own creative outlet.
One day, while searching for light-weight, delicate earrings, I had the idea to create my own. My ears are tiny and require ultra-light-weight earrings. While playing around with some wire, I discovered my design. Then, I was hooked! I made 20 earrings the first day. Pretty soon, my family and friends were requesting earrings and The Paper Balloon was born!
When I come home, I retreat to my studio and start creating. The original earring design has evolved to include different metals and beads. I have also added unique necklaces and charm bracelets. Each design is approved by my little cats, Sam and Frodo. They keep a watchful eye over everything in The Paper Balloon.
In March, our little twin girls, Ava and Zoey will arrive. I would love to be able to stay home with my little girls and help support my family with The Paper Balloon. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Sam is a wise, handsome black cat. He enjoys chasing squirrels and snoozing in the sun. Sam keeps a watchful eye over all the hard work that happens in The Paper Balloon shop, at least when he isn't napping.
Frodo is an energetic, adorable little cat. He enjoys exploring everything possible and kindly taste-testing people's drinks. Frodo is very paws-on in The Paper Balloon shop. He can often be found playing with the owl beads.
Ava and Zoey
Ava and Zoey inspire and over-see the daily operations here in the studio. They specialize in giggling and being adorable.
