I love the smell of pretty paper, drinking Chai Tea and making unique things out of whatever I can find. I'm a dollar store junkie who loves to design with Kraft paper, textures, burlap, inks, ribbons, buttons, glitter and anything that can be up-cycled. I'm excited to be a part of this Buttons Galore & More Design team. I hope my ideas inspire you.
