Serious about getting crafty?
Yeah, me too. It was such a delight to teach craft lovers how to make paper flowers while I worked at Paper Source. I haven’t worked there in over 8 months and I genuinly miss it. Retail is tough everywhere but I atleast had comfort in being able to craft and talk shop with everyone there. So in efforts to branch out of my comfort zone I will be hosting a couple of workshops throughout the Boston/Worcester Area. I’d love to see you there!

I can’t finish this post without thanking all the people who have helped contribute to these events.
Katlyn Reilly Champagne. Who hosted my first ever workshop, “Femme Florale” early last February at Katlyn Reilly Photography Studio. She provided a beautiful space to work, and is person who has always supported me through out the years with her talent and friendship.
To Glenn, former manager of Studio 52 who found the perfect space for a photo shoot.
My sister Alicia who has been super supportive and drove me everywhere for the shoot and back. She helped me have octopus arms that day.
My Femme Fatales: Lisa Dibona, Jennifer Turpin, Erin Genett and Shannon Donahue! Gorgeous ladies that don’t mess around. Thank you for being available! That day was a blast.
