I love beautiful things- especially when others can enjoy it, too. Designing is my passion. I almost always have someone in mind when I am creating a new pattern or designing an invitation or stationery. I love creating something beautiful that can be enjoyed by the recipient and then shared with their loved ones.
My inspiration came from my Mama Dory. Receiving hand-written letters on small printed-paper with flower vignettes on the side while I was away at school was a major highlight in my life. In a world of e-mail and texting, (something that my grandma does not know how to do) receiving something tangible, addressed to you is a special moment. You know that person took the time to sign, seal and deliver a little token of himself or herself to you. I still keep all the letters my Mama Dory sends to me. Knowing that I could have an opportunity to provide a passage for more letters to be sent and memories to be created is astounding. I want to create beautiful pieces that can be shared by grandmother-granddaughter, old college roommates, neighbors and everyone else that cares about each other.
I graduated from BYU in Psychology in 2008 and I started “designing” in 2008 when I put together my son’s baby announcement. I have come a long way since then. I have taught myself a lot and taken classes from Nicole’s Classes that have fine-tuned my skills. I wake up everyday yearning to create something new and special. I am still a full time mom and work from home when my kids are napping or in bed for the night. My job as a mother always comes first, but it is important to me to have something for myself- something else that brings me satisfaction and accomplishment. What started out as a hobby-has turned into a part-time business that I absolutely love waking up to everyday.
**I also love waking up to chocolate (anything but dark) and reminiscing with DMB. I love movies and cuddling and could have never done this without the help of my husband, who is incredibly supportive and my #1 fan, and my kids as they inspire the “fun and carefree” side of me.
