“A jack of all trades is a master of none…
I am a web developer by profession but a crafter by passion. By craft I mean literally anything associated with paper – stationery, hand lettering, scrap booking, you name it. Being creative isn’t something I can turn off. It drives every decision I make and every hobby I participate in. The key to that creativity, however, is having a problem to solve in the first place. And nothing makes me happier than doing that for you.
From Internet Explorer bugs to personalized wedding invitations each project has one thing in common. I am solving a problem for my client. And for every interest I dive in to I get to use that experience to resolve each and every challenge.
My history in retail has taught me how to communicate with everyone. My background in photography has given me an eye to catch issues on sites before they’re launched. Working with all of these different mediums provides me with more approaches to any task I face.
…but oftentimes better than a master of one”
I write my own content. Post my own photos. I even built my own site. Some might call me fiercely independent but the truth of the matter is I prefer people. And I like doing all of that everyday. The only way I can accomplish that, though, is to make it my career. And the only way I can make it my career is to do it for people like you!
I’m not the creme of the crop in anything I do. I know that is weird declaration to make but hear me out. My goal has never been to be number one. It’s to do my best. To constantly learn and improve so I can always face any task. And with the confidence I’ve gained from solving a variety of previous problems.
So all I can do is communicate honestly and find an authentic vision for the task ahead. I capture genuine personality in candid photos. I craft custom wedding invitations for newly engaged couples. I build sites based on client needs and in everything I do I give one hundred percent!
low-to-no waste packaging
supplies sourced from Scrap Exchange
scraps turn into handmade paper
Even though my passion involves a paper product I make it a priority to craft and package with as much recycled material as possible. And when I can’t reuse a left over container from embossing powders to tape dispensers and ink pads I donate it right back for another artist to use!
I find many of my stamps, paper, and twine from The Scrap Exchange here in Durham. If you haven’t checked them out yet I highly recommend it. They are a local non-profit that has saved tons of material from sitting in landfills. They believe in community outreach and instruction. Basically they’re the best.
I also shop at Paper Source – another company that believes in people over product. Many of their cards and envelopes are 100% recycled. Any Paper Source printed gift wrap is done so by family owned and operated mill that have been introducing water saving techniques and use soy-based inks. I believe in reducing my footprint as well as trying to #sendmorelove with my stationery.
