Welcome to my cardmaking business. I'm a writer who worked with computer-based graphic design at newspapers for years. I love papercrafts, and the process of making things by hand -- no computer. I started making cards for friends several years ago, who encouraged me to sell them, too. In December, 2004, I sold holiday cards to the florist down the street and have sold over 800 unique designs since then. Almost all of my cards are one of a kind.

Love paper. Love color. Love Berkeley. Love Etsy.

Beyond that, my style is eclectic and I love to experiment. I get completely absorbed in engineering my varied creations for hours. Each one is a new and unique production, made of treasures from my collection of paper and ephemera, transfigured into a single piece held together by a little glue, a lot of ideas, practice and work, and most of all, a great amount of joy.

Some of my custom work can be viewed at Everything is made in a smoke free environment.

I use recycled shipping materials whenever possible.
