On Etsy since 2009

Paper, scissors and glue aren't just for kids!

Hello, thanks for visiting my shop!

I never felt very crafty as a kid. My mom and sister were always making things - afghans, Christmas decor, teddy bears, tole paintings, etc. I stayed in the background and admired from afar. Then I discovered scrapbooking in 1998 when I started a baby book for my infant daughter. I realized I was very good at it and even better, I really enjoyed it. Over the years my hobby evolved to include card making and scrapbook embellishments. I sold my handmade embellishments on eBay for a couple of years before taking a break from online selling. My daughter got into making jewelry and a friendly shop owner suggested she try selling them. I opened an Etsy shop for her in 2009 but it didn't stay open for long. I was clueless on how to run it but I did learn a lot in the 6 months it was open. In the summer 2012 I felt a calling to come back to Etsy and sell my own handmade cards. I officially launched this card shop in October 2012 and it's grown every year since.

My shop is now in its 8th year on Etsy and I love it! Over the years my shop has evolved from traditional handmade cards to cards I design on my PC and print myself. You see, I'm also a graphic designer at my day job and I enjoy using my skills to create printed cards. I invested in an Epson Workforce printer in the summer of 2019. I print my cards on heavy white cardstock (100 lb 298 gms). I still sell a few traditional, handmade items in my shop but my printed cards are my main focus.

My husband and I live in Massachusetts and have three adult children between us. We have one cat living with us and three cats waiting at the Rainbow Bridge. I’m a breast cancer survivor since June 2017. My year of treatment inspired me to create my line of breast cancer support cards.

When I'm not doing my fun job (Etsy!), I work outside the home as a graphic designer at a local newspaper. I've been working in the printing industry since my 16th birthday in 1976. I use Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator and Acrobat at home and at my day job.

Pieces of Me Paper Crafts is a smoke-free, cat-friendly shop.

Frequently asked questions
Can you personalize my tags with a name or phrase?

My tags are handmade by me but I'm not set up to print on them. I'd be happy to hand stamp "thank you" on your tags but I can't add names, dates or other personal information.

PLEASE CONTACT ME PRIOR TO PURCHASE to request hand stamping as it may require an additional charge. Messages left in the notes to seller at checkout without contacting me first may result in your order being delayed or cancelled.

Can I place a bulk order?

My shop carries several bulk packs of pet sympathy cards and thank you cards at different price points. If you’re interested in a bulk pack (10+ cards) of a specific card, please contact me privately so I can quote you a price. Larger orders require a longer processing time. See the next question for processing and shipping info.

How soon will I get my order?

My shop is located in Massachusetts. Ready to ship items are mailed in 1-3 business days.

Items that are labeled as "made to order" have a longer processing time that allows me time to make your order and package it for shipping. Made to order items usually ship within one week, depending on the size of the order.

Special requests will be shipped in the time frame agreed upon at the time of the order.

Delivery time** depends on your location and the method of shipping you choose at checkout. Most first class packages arrive in 4-7 business days. Priority delivery is usually 2-3 business days but is not guaranteed. See my shop policies regarding postal delays and lost packages.

**Delivery time does not include my processing time.
