Welcome to the Diary of a Paper Princess

I am a work-from-home mother who specializes in raising a daughter, being a wife, selling invitations and stationery and planning special events for others.  In 2007, I left the security of a paycheck, with the passion to start my own business, the desire to work for myself and the dream of creating a balanced world where I could be a mom, a wife and a professional.  Today, I have a successful small event planning business with a blossoming invitation and stationery clientele. 
When I'm not busy planning special events and social occasions for others, you can find me with my family.  I generally have a camera in hand looking for that perfect photo op.  By the way, did you know that the top and back of a 2 year olds head is great subject matter?
One of the things that I've developed over the years - partly because of my business and partly because of my scrapbooking hobby - is a passion for paper.  I love looking through my inventory, going to the National Stationery Show to see what's new, helping customers pick the right colors and papers for their special order and even taking the time to find the right paper product for my personal needs. 
My guilty pleasure is going to the craft and paper stores.  I can stand for hours (when I have a few) in the paper isles, searching through all the new patterns, checking the quality of the solid stock and feeling the new textured papers.  While I may always gravitate back to some standard color schemes and solid card stocks, I'm always on the look-out for that unique pattern or textured paper that just might do the trick when you have that one photo you just don't know what to do with.
I hope you will join me on this paper-passion journey where I will share my views on what's hot (and what's not) in papers for all your paper needs, deals on invitations and stationery, tips on what to do with outdated papers, ideas for paper crafts and any other paper inspired idea may come to me at 3:00 am in the morning.
