About Me

My story is rather unique.  It has many tears and smiles, but worth it in the end.  I hope that besides sharing what I love to do, I can help someone by sharing this experience and maybe even give them hope that everything will be alright.

I always loved creating things.  It didn’t matter what it was (or how bad I was at it), I always felt proud when I was done.  It wasn’t until much later in life though when I found my true passion for paper crafting.

The exact day was December 3, 2004.  The problem was that for the past week I was in an increasingly amount of pain.  It started on a Monday as a little patch of numbness on my right forearm and right ear.  A week later, I went for an MRI.  My doctor walked, put both hands on my shoulders.

“You have MS.”

I was still in school; all alone. I called my parents, who were hundreds of miles away.  I tried calling my friends, but they were in class or working.

I eventually got a hold of an old acquaintance, who is now one of my best friends.  I walked to her dorm room and it was the best thing that I could have done.  She didn’t let me sit there and cry.  She distracted me.  She introduced me to one of her hobbies: scrapbooking.  I have been hooked every since.

Eventually, I decided that I need to share my passion for creating beautiful things with everyone.  I just love being able to put a smile on someone’s face with the things I create.  This was the reason I opened my shop.

When I’m not exercising the right side of my brain in my office (aka the crafting studio), I am using the left side at my full time job as an accountant.
