Tell us about your brand
I design and manufacture handmade paper greeting cards for a variety of occasions. Each card is assembled by hand, making each one truly unique. I have always enjoyed creating cards for family and friends and that passion has turned into a small business that has allowed me to share my creativity with others. All of my designs are inspired by the people and places around me.
what's your story?
I am a designer, maker, entrepreneur, and stay at home mom living in the Laurel Highlands of beautiful Somerset County, Pennsylvania. My educational background is in interior and industrial design, and I have working experience in visual merchandising, product development and retail floor planning.
In August of 2019 I made the decision to leave my full-time job to stay at home with my first son, “Sweet Baby”, and it was wonderful to watch him learn and grow. Every day is an adventure (and challenge if I am being honest). Adding to the daily adventure my husband and I welcomed our second son in May of 2022 who is now filling the role of “Sweet Baby”.
Outside of my educational and career interests, I have always enjoyed creating handmade cards for family and friends. While it may not be as fast as sending an email or text, I love the process of designing and building a card, writing a handwritten note, addressing an envelope and walking it to the mailbox. The extra effort is worth the reward of surprising someone with a card in the mail to let them know you are thinking about them.
I enjoy working with paper, a simple, yet delicate material that poses many challenges as well as many possibilities. I own the design and manufacturing process from start to finish. I pride myself on my attention to detail and craftsmanship.
Thank you for your interest in Sweet Baby Paper Company and I encourage you to “say something sweet” and send a card!
What one product do we need to know about and why?
The Racing To Wish You Happy Birthday Handmade Greeting Card is one of my best selling cards and features the Pirates Pierogies that we all love watching race at PNC Park. It is a great birthday card for a friend or family member.
