About Me

My name is Kristine Vicente. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a niece, an aunt, a cousin, a co-worker a business owner and a friend. What I love most about the relationships I listed above, is the sharing.  The love, the advice, the stories, the recipes, the ideas… and to me, some of the best things in life are handmade.

My blog is about sharing the handmade goodness and happy stuff of life! I also know first hand that happiness CAN come in an envelope! My “specialty” is paper-crafting so you will see a lot of that here, but I also dabble in other creative mediums so you will see a little bit of that too!  I am a Creative Consultant with A Muse|Studio and really enjoy sharing ideas for using their wonderful stamps, papers, inks and embellishments.

I think we all could use a little more inspiration so please consider this blog a little “fun sanctuary” and I will try to update it regularly with happy, helpful, thoughtful, creative concepts to help you escape, even if its just for a few minutes …K.
