I would never call myself an artist by any means, but I LOVE being creative. I’m obsessed with using my hands to create new things especially using paper, ribbon and fabrics. Whether it be making my own cards and invitations, or just thinking of eclectic ways to use paper to wrap gifts and such, I have a passion for all things paper.
I cannot walk into a stationary, paper or craft store without wanting to pick up, touch, feel and buy everything on the shelf! I also love using textured ribbons and bright colored papers to give a gift that special touch. I truly enjoy the beauty of a delicately wrapped gift, and don’t think you can ever go wrong when you put love and care into gift-wrapping.
Along with paper products, I am a wedding fanatic! I am down right obsessed with weddings, spending many of my days scrolling wedding blogs, and sifting through wedding magazines for hours on end. I cherish any wedding that reflects the uniqueness of the couple it is celebrating, and love when a wedding has a whimsical and charming touch. I believe there is nothing more pure than a bride and groom looking into each other’s eyes the moment right before they say their “I Do’s.” Weddings are pure magic, and I hope that one day I can play even a small part in the wonderful world of weddings.
I have been a nurse for over 3 years now (wow!). And my nursing career, although rewarding, does not always lend itself to my creative side. Through the support and listening ear of both my husband and closest girlfriends I have been inspired to try something new. I want to use this blog as a means to explore my potential for creativity… could my ‘”craftiness” be more than just a hobby, but rather a career in and of itself? My plan is to post my newest paper creations, thoughts and ideas for gift-wrapping, invitations, card making and much more. I will frequently post pictures of the things that inspire me to design, including my travels.
I am currently jumping feet first into the next journey in my life, and am hoping that this journey includes a bit of weddings, paper, blogging, working side by side with couples, and a whole lot of creativity. Thank you for following me on this journey and please let me know if you ever want me to wrap a gift for you or help you create the invitation or wedding of your dreams!
