As a child, one of my greatest pastimes was creating unique artworks with the imagination that only a child could dream up. While other children busied themselves with toys, there was nothing I loved more than painting and coloring on paper. One of my earliest crafting experiences was when I was in 3rd grade. One of our class assignments was to collect twigs and moss from nature and create a house nestled within a shadow box. I also utilized clay, cardboard and paint to make mine truly unique. The result was spectacular, especially given my young age. I held onto it for several years until it fell apart. I grew into an adult and continued to look for ways to express my creativity. With a degree in studio art, I explored different mediums to evolve and define myself as an artist. However, it wasn't until I became a mother for the very first time that my ingenuity really ignited. During my pregnancy, I took great pleasure in decorating my daughter's nursery. I spent almost every waking moment, up until her birth, creating a storybook setting that was ideal for welcoming her to the world in a fashion fit for a precious little princess. Little did I know then that the seed for "Simply Nesting" had been planted. After receiving praise from family members, I took the next logical step an opened a shop on Etsy. My shop offers a variety of paper products and supplies for every occasion such as a weddings, formal parties and even planning a nursery. Each piece has been custom handmade using my skills as a designer. There's nothing I love more than sharing my custom handmade paper creations with the Etsy community. Each one of my designs will surely add a measure of whimsy to your space and is guaranteed to brighten your day! You will also find in my shop party supplies, paper straws, handmade tissue paper pom poms, nursery wall art, paper birds, paper butterflies, stickers, party favor bags, cotton muslin bags, photo backdrops, dessert table backdrops, garlands, napkin rings, paper doilies, glittery embellishments for packaging and colorful confetti.
