Creativity fills the heart
For those of us, that enjoy exploring creative pursuits we understand that there is more to it than just making something. Using our hands replenishes us and gives us a boost of energy with a twist of happiness that is unequal. My mission is to design products that you can use to find those moments of creative bliss and accomplishment. Because creativity really does fill the heart.
I opened A Little Hut in 2004 after friends that saw a birthday card I made by hand suggested that I should sell my work. I also happened to be trying to find ways to get away from sitting in front of a computer for hours at a time. So, I started out by selling stationery, printables and hand cut paper illustrations. Cutting projects one-by-one wasn’t giving me the time I needed. As it turned out, relief was on the way – I discovered cutting machines.
My business immediately transformed, yet stayed the same. I am still able to create new designs and put them together myself (I still love working by hand), and now I have the added bonus of teaching others how to have fun with paper too. Making and passing it on – it’s the best of all worlds.
My first book, Home, Paper, Scissors: Decorative Paper Accessories for the Home was published in 2009. Sharing my love for paper with so many others was truly a dream come true. The book is a collection of more than 30 paper craft projects that use paper and recyclable materials.
My latest publications are coloring books that take my illustrations to colorists that enjoy some relaxing time with color. Flower Nook: A Coloring Book was published in the fall of 2015. It’s a collection of 50 of her nature-inspired illustrations. Adventures in the Garden is my most recent coloring book. I will be published in March of 2017 and will feature little girls exploring and having fun among giant flowers and friendly critters.
