Welcome to my website and blog. I love sharing my adventures in all things paper, home decorating, and party planning with you. I am a full time Financial Advisor with a major wealth planning firm, a former figure skater, wife, mother, little sister to the best big brother in the world (only the best big brother would drive you to the skating rink every morning at 5:30), and loyal friend.

IΒ have always enjoyed crafting and decorating my home for every occasion. I love making handmade paper flowers, cards, and gifts for my friends and loved ones. Β Nothing says “I care” like a handmade gift. Β My friends love receiving my gifts and have encouraged me to share my love of home and crafts with you.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you have. You can find my contact info on the “about us” page. And if there is something that you would like to see, let me know.

So let’s get started–HAPPY CRAFTING!
