Creating personal touches for special occassions

As a small child I would often receive a ream of paper, stapler and some new crayons or markers for Christmas. While this may not seem like a traditional gift to many, this was my most treasured. I would spend countless hours making booklets, checkbooks, cutting fun shapes, lacing strands of paper together to decorate my room and this is where my obsession with paper began.

The Obsessive Crafter started as a blog a little over a year ago as my creative outlet and with the hopes of leading to an Etsy shop someday. I am beyond excited to be taking this next step and opening up The Obsessive Crafter Shop!

Those that know me, know that I love to throw parties and make them as personal as possible. From handmade garlands and banners down to the coordinating favor tags, I strive for perfection in all the projects I take on and this shop is no different!

Here at The Obsessive Crafter you will find creative, custom, handmade pieces to add just the right touch to your special event, child(ren)'s room or photo props for the bride and groom. All products are handcrafted in my smoke free home studio with special attention to detail, execution, materials and packaging.

If you don't see the colors you need or have something more custom in mind - don't hesitate to contact me so that we can create your own unique custom order.

Thanks for stopping by to browse - I hope you enjoy shopping as much as I love creating.

Here at The Obsessive Crafter I strive for creative perfection and that shows in all of the products you will find in my shop not to mention my customer service. I hope that my handmade creations are the perfect personal touch you are looking for your event, your home or as a gift. All pieces of decor are created in my home studio which is a completely smoke free but is home to one four legged exceptionally loving lab mix.
