About

from old to new, to you

Hmmm.
My story.
How did it all start?
What is my whole process?

The short version is that I love to create....things. Anything and everything, I have to try at least once.

This shop holds some of the (in my opinion!) winning arts and crafts I have tried my hand at in the recent years, from bookbinding and recycled card making to adorable party supplies and home decor. These are the things I love to make, and love to share. I hope you will love them too!

The name paperbacklife came from a friend, as we were talking about how I was bringing old paper 'back to life' through my then-past time of making my own paper. From there, the love of using recycled products to create new art and gifts has grown into this little shop. Using as much recycled product as I can, I try to do my part to save the earth, and stretch our shopping budget - both mine and yours!
Craft supplies for paperbacklife, like the wall paper samples, were donated by big design firms as the fashion changed; doctors and teachers donate old letter head and office supplies; #AwesomeHusband and other IT guys donate old computer parts - and offer lots of advice! All of these things mix around with the crazy ideas in my head, then they creep across the art room and eventually become all of the wonderful goodies you find here!

Each item is handmade by me, unless otherwise stated. Most items are one of a kind or limited run, so once that particular pattern is sold, it is probably gone for good. This, while frustrating for some, happens for a number of reasons; it satisfies my ever changing artistic desires, uses up some of the odds and ends that are donated, and keeps the shop fresh and interesting each time you visit!

Thanks for visiting today, and taking the time to learn a little about my shop.
