About Me

Hi! I'm Emily, your crafty go to girl. I love all things crafty! I enjoy sewing, scrapbooking, photography, card making, DIY projects, home decor, photo projects, personalized gifts, stamping, jewelry making and just about anything that involves creativity. I run a small Etsy shop called paperpixie crafts. I also have my products in several local shops. I am slowly but surely extending my line of products. My goal is to start filling up my Etsy shop and then eventually open a local boutique. Luckily, I have a wonderful husband who can tolerate my craft obsession, and a great family who is always supportive of my goals. This blog is a sneak peek in to my life and my creative thoughts. I'll be sure to keep you posted with all the cool stuff I see along my crafty journey. Thanks for reading!

I'm a Secret Millionaire!

Remember me telling you about the amazing resource Learn Vest in this post?
Well, the nice folks at Learn Vest gave me the amazing opportunity to participate in their own mini "secret Millionarire" undercover contest.
I can't post all of the details here, as I promised to let them post it on their site exclusively. If you would like to read about the contest, my daily journals, and see who I decided to make a donation to, please check out the following links.
"We’ll post Emily’s journals on LearnVest every weekday from now until Thursday the 26th, when she’ll reveal who she picked to receive $250. Read Emily’s first entry, and find out why she applauds a single mother turning down a job, how her town is coping with tornado damage, and what that has to do withAmerican Idol."

Today I volunteered at a local nonprofit organization and my day crossed paths with a man whose experience stirred my emotions about our city's resources.
