AnnMarie is lovely to work with. From concept to delivery, AnnMarie was totally involved in the process, and really listened to what I wanted in a mobile. In fact, the cherry blossoms came out even better than I expected, as did the bead work. AnnMarie's mobile's are made with loads of TLC, and are absolutely gorgeous. I'm honored to have her work hanging above my little one's crib.

WOW! Absolutely beautiful and high quality work. She was able to make it exactly as I asked and I couldn't be happier. THANK YOU! Perfect in our nursery and something that she can enjoy as she gets older. Love it!

About

In search for peaceful bliss

In 2009 my husband's job as an electrician became slow due to the economic climate and I had just lost my job. Add our 9 yr old daughter into the mix and you have some tight purse strings. I needed a gift for a friend's new baby so I had to come up with something I could make with the supplies I had at home. Unfortunately I was stumped.

After a few days of tossing around ideas in my head, I sat down to watch Martha Stewart make a mobile from wire and paper punches. BAM! I didn't have the money to get any paper punches so I would have to improvise. I remembered that the nursery theme was cherry blossoms, why couldn't I make origami cherry blossoms and hang cranes which symbolize a long, happy life. I made it, she loved it and a few facebook posting later I was what I now know was the creation of my business.

Since that first primitive mobile, my mobile creating has turned into finely detailed work that feeds my spirit. They have gone from hot glue and glass beads to hand painted and wired flowers and branches and swarovski crystals.

Each mobile takes between 12 hours to 2 weeks to create depending on the size and preparation needed.

In between mobile making I love to put my marketing and visual merchandising experience to good use. I am a visual merchandise consultant to small retail stores. My favorite time of the year is decorating clients homes, businesses and stores for the holiday season.

Right now my true passion is paper and creating a mobile more enchanting than the next. I like to call them "Paper Meditations" because when a slight breeze hits them and they swirl and twirl, I dare you not to stop and stare at it and lose yourself in the moment.

    I'm a life long student of art and a practitioner of yoga and meditation and I try to carry that over into my creations. My current passion is paper and origami mobiles, each one is many hours of deep creative meditation.
