I thought I would take this weeks' blog post to share some things about myself and how I found myself knee deep in paper.
I love paper. I am paper obsessed. From beautiful colors to different textures. . .I love paper. I find myself sometimes buying paper just to buy it. I may never even use it. I love paper.
Since I love paper so much, I love to paper craft. Since I was a preschool teacher of the deaf and hard of hearing I've loved making paper projects. As a teacher I would always create the cutest little art projects for my students to recreate. I loved cutting with scissors and creating things.
Now that I am a stay at home mom, I still make cute little art projects for my two daughter's ages 3 and 1 but now I've taken it to a different level. I make paper party decorations. I started making decorations for my for my first daughter's first birthday and it has been downhill since. I began making decos. for everybody. I recently just decided to open a shop on etsy.
The etsy shop has been great. It's a lot of work for a stay at home mom who does most of her work in the late evenings. It's a lot of fun. I love making parties beautiful and I love helping people make their parties' beautiful!
Well, that's a little piece of what it's like to be me. . .Chrissie. . .mom. . .wife. . .designer-party paper scissors!
