After teaching third grade for six years, I traded my love of the classroom for the arrival of twin baby girls and a full-time position at home. It didn’t take long before my teaching creativity found a new outlet. As I was planning for my daughters’ first birthday, a fun new passion was discovered… paper and parties! I handmade the invitations and all the decor for their sweet lollipop celebration and loved every minute of it! After the party, I decided to sell my labor of love in a local ad. The party decor sold the next morning and additional requests continued. I started a blog to share my creations in 2010, and before long, orders filled my inbox daily. What started as a fun hobby and creative outlet, turned into a full paper and party business. From Atlanta to Australia, my little blog spread, and I was in awe as I shipped orders across the country and around the world.
In 2011, my husband and I were blessed with the arrival of our third baby girl. With an infant and two toddlers, I could no longer meet the demand of printed orders. I closed business for maternity leave and re-opened as a party printable Etsy shop in May of 2011. It was the perfect fit!
I have always loved celebrating birthdays and find such joy in making the day special for others. It is an honor to now be a small part of the celebrations of so many!
I have been married for six years to my wonderful husband, Clay. We live outside Atlanta, Georgia with our three daughters, Julia (4), Anna Claire (4) and Eliza (2). I love ALL the details, mint chocolate chip ice cream, teaching my girls, polka dots, pearls, late night chats, summer walks, anything preppy and all things girlie.
“This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!” Join me in celebrating the day! I would be honored to help make your event extra special.
