I have been creating for as long as I can remember. As trends changed so did I, always learning and trying my hand at something new. Sewing, painting, and even wood working. You name it, I have tried it! I have always said, "I can make that, and if I can't, I will figure it out!" My love for paper crafting started many years ago when my two children were very small. What began as a hobby grew to becoming a consultant for a rubber stamping company. I had the pleasure of designing projects and artwork for their catalog which led me to other opportunities within the crafting industry. Over the years I have enjoyed being a teacher and educator as well as a design team member for several top manufacturers. I have always loved being creative, but my true passion is in sharing my creativity with others. In 2009, with the support and a bit of nudging from family and friends, I started Paisleys and Polka Dots. Someone pinch me because I never imagined being where I am today! As a small business owner I value the experiences I have had and the friendships I have developed by being a part of this amazing industry.
Although I am the creative mind behind Paisleys and Polka Dots, I must say I could never bring you all these kits on my own. I am one lucky girl because I have an amazing hardworking team who help in the production process. From cutting chipboard to prepping the kits, they do it all! Sometimes, you will even find my husband in the office cutting away at the chipboard.
On a personal note, I am born and raised a Cali girl, a wife to my hubby Jerry, and a mom to my son and daughter. In my spare time you will find me loving the outdoors, on a hike, or riding my bike. I love an adventure and I will try just about anything at least once.
Happy crafting and have a wonderful day!
