Peas & Thank You's is my passion for creativity, my urge to construct, and most importantly the celebration of the most important things in my life - my children. In 2005 I decided to leave my professional career to spend more time with my first daughter who was then just two years old. Not long after I found myself looking for an outlet, something other than housework to occupy naptime... and then I discovered paper.
Not just plain ol' paper, but beautiful paper in every delicious color one can imagine! Paper that I could cut, tear, stitch, fold and glue to create something amazing... but what? Well, Neenie did have a birthday coming up, so I made her invitations. I must admit, they were not fabulous AT ALL! But I learned a lot making that first set, and most importantly I realized I wanted to learn so much more.
So here I am today, my spare bedroom now home to boxes upon boxes of beautiful envelopes, stacks of paper up to my chin and miles of ribbon, tulle and thread dangling overhead. My world comes to life with the printers hum and the racket of the cutter, and every night I can't wait to get back to work turning ordinary paper into extraordinary parties!
Thank you for visiting my blog, my shop, and my world!
