Hmm...how do I start this?..
Well, this is it. Blog sweet blog. I'm really looking forward to sharing all the latest from my shop, including sweet deals and great sales! Oh yeah, and don't forget to visit my shop: TrickyBugPaperArt.etsy.com
First, a bit about me. I'm a mommy to a sweet-pea two and a half year old son who shall be called Lil' Nib for all intents and purposes here. I work three days a week and spend the other days at home with Lil' Nib. It's a perfect balance of mommy time and adult world time. Don't get me wrong, I love to sling mac n' cheese and change dirty diapers - but sometimes one just craves a little conversation other than the merits of Steve vs. Joe on Blue's Clues. Those are the days I love going to work outside the home.
As you've no doubt already noticed, I tend to inject a little snark here and there. Seriously, I love being a mommy and I wouldn't trade one minute of said mac-slinging for anything else in the world.
I became interested in scrapbooking about eight years ago and the bug has never gone away. When Lil' Nib was about a year old, I finally started on his baby scrapbook, materials very generously supplied by Grandma S. I was still in the bleary-eyed and dazed mommy stage, but I became obsessively consumed with preserving Lil' Nib's precious babyhoood for posterity, and the story goes on from there...
...About four months ago I opened Tricky Bug Paper Art on Etsy. Even though my first love is scrapbooking, I sell mostly handmade greeting cards, with a few ACEOs, shadow boxes, treasure boxes, composition books and other little doo-dads thrown in for good measure.
Anyhoo, enough about boring old me. I hope you have an opportunity to check out my shop. I heart custom orders so just drop me a line any time if you'd like to work with me on a one of a kind piece.
Pictured is the first piece in my brand new "Bella's Heart" collection..the Isle Esme treasure box. (listed in my shop). And yes, I have OCD (Obsessive Cullen Disorder). All the best men are sparkly and undead, no??
I'll be working on the next box - "The Wedding" - soon.
