A little about me

Introducing myself

As a child I had the good fortune to grow up in my mom’s Dried Flower store filled with the most beautiful dried flowers from Holland, the US and even New Zealand Hydrangeas, my favorite, all kinds of Freeze Dried flowers, Urns, and Ribbons to die for (I still maintain a large collection that I saved from scraps since I was a kid) when they use to do weddings or parties my mom would ask me to help, at the time I did not realize all the things I was actually learning and someday love to do.  I was also surrounded by my mother’s friends and business partners a group of extremely talented ladies that together all taught me a lot about crafts, designing and LIFE.

It wasn’t until after my son was born when I started scrapbooking that I found out that all the things I use to find a chore to do in my mother’s store when I was a child became the things I enjoy making the most today.
I am also very lucky to have my children, great parents, and to be married to a wonderful man who helps me achieve my dreams, I have my career in the medical field, I owned a scrapbook store for three years were I made lots of friends some have even become like family, but, as wonderful as that was for me, it took a lot of time away from my family, time, that I was not willing to give up cause I would never get that time back. So, when I decided to close it down it was actually a blessing.

Now, I get to have the best of both worlds I have my job, My mom and I have our website and our Etsy store where we get to create great PARTY FAVORS and more, but best of all I don't lose out on spending time with my two beautiful children and wonderful husband.
