One day I woke up and realized that my life no longer felt balanced. I was missing a part of me that had been buried under a professional career of spreadsheets and number crunching. My daughter would bring home pages covered in her creations, and I recognized that these were a gift to me in more ways than one. So, I began to collect her works of art and recycle them into beautiful handmade paper. This is how Purple Butterfly Paper came to be, from a personal path to mental wellness and a little girl that inspires her mom every day. 


Together, we collect items from our environment, and I turn these into paper, to help others express their own creative ideas. I continue to experiment with different inclusions and paper products, and love this journey that her and I are on together. Bookbinding and crafting handmade journals are a natural extension of what I love. All books contain elements of my handmade paper, and are stitched together one at a time. I hope you enjoy filling them as much as I enjoy piecing them together.
