What got you started making things?
I started making handmade items at a very young age. My grandmother and mother taught me how to sew and it just kind of snowballed from that point. I started making gifts for people and making things for people who had empty spaces on their walls.

How'd you choose paper as your medium?
I really love working with paper because you can do so much with the diferent colors and types of paper. You can sew, glue and layer paper to create all different styles and designs. Jewelry, clocks, art ...really anything you can think of can be created with some type of paper.

Have any other tips for Etsy artists?
Stick to what you love and don't doubt your ability. People will know by your customer service and product how much you love what you do. Stay positive and take advice from other artist seriously, but with a grain of salt atmthe same time...if that makes sense. Remember, what works for some people might not work for you.
