“I’ve wanted to own a design shop for as long as I can remember. Something quirky and beautiful — a place that smells good and is filled with fun things. A place to be inspired; a place where my puppy can run around in a cute sweater. And a place that’s affordable, too! But since my husband’s in school, I’m stuck with a boring 9-5 job instead. I wanted to open an Etsy shop for awhile — a creative outlet of my own — but I was too scared to do it. It’s easy to let doubts fill my heart and keep me from doing what I love — what if no one likes my work? What is nothing sells? What if I’m a failure? In January 2014 I decided not to let those things hold me back any longer! Bpaperie was born and has been a long time coming. I accept custom order via Etsy, and I have plenty to offer locally at Block Party Handmade Boutique as well. And Lucy, my puppy, frequents Block Party with me — so maybe we’ll see you there 😉 Thank you for supporting local handmade artists!”
