About

Professional Scrap booking

I come from a long line of crafters and DIYers. My mom, aunts, grandmas could all sew and crochet. Crafting is in my blood! I started crafting when I was a young girl. My first passion was scrapbooking. The first one I ever made was for a classmate of mine who had a rare degenerative neurological disorder. As her condition deteriorated, I made her a scrapbook with pictures of her family and friends. This became a most prized possession for her and her family and started my love for paper crafting.

After college, a friend of mine and I struggled to figure out what we want to do when we grow up. We came to the conclusion that we had a lot of interests that didn't really equate to typical 8-5; Monday-Friday jobs. One day I said I wish someone would pay me to scrap book. Wouldn't that be great?

Time when on and I still wanted to get paid to scrap book. A co-worker of mine, who knew my passion for crafts, showed me a wonderful site called Etsy. Shortly after I setup my shop and began crafting shadow boxes to list in my shop. That quickly morphed into decorative letters, which lead to new door hanger and wood block lines. Now I am staying home with my son and my Etsy shop helps provide for my beautiful family! It has been a great journey and I can't wait to see where it takes me next.

    I have been crafting since I was a young girl. Several years ago I made a series of shadow boxes for my husband's sister for her high school graduation. That lead me to wanting to try to generate an income on one of my favorite things to do.
