Meet The Maker
Hello! I am the creator of Paper Lili Handmade Designs and Cards of Kindness. I design and create original handmade cards and gift tags; provide brush lettering services; and offer unique paper-crafting experiences for small groups. Card making was a hobby I enjoyed as a teenager; my father even encouraged me to turn it into a business. Nearly two decades later, stirred by a chance Tarot reading, I took a leap and launched Paper Lili Handmade Designs. I am a happy and giving person by nature and am grateful for my family, especially my son whom I often craft alongside.
In 2016 I created a project, Cards of Kindness, to inspire others to be intentional in sharing kindness and generosity. For me, paper crafting and card making is a joyful, creative outlet and gives time and space to recharge. Inspiration can be found walking by the ocean - when I can clear my head, observe natural details like the impression of a leaf in the mud, and spark my imagination.
I enjoy the process and simplicity of card-making and working with different materials - ink, watercolours, brush pens, and various paper. I also take great pleasure in enjoying a latte over conversation with a good friend.
