The Girl Behind the Paper

10 May 2011

     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!
