Welcome to Stars Hollow! My name is Paula.
Like so many girls I loved making jewelry when I was little. I had jewelry making kits and also liked to find various little objects to use. It was so much fun coming up with new ideas and felt so good to present my mother or my friends with something I had made especially for them. Well not much has changed. I still get a thrill from figuring out new things or finding a beautiful old piece of jewelry and transforming it into something new. I have never taken any jewelry making classes. Instead I have read books, watched videos and taken things apart to see how they were made. This has probably made learning more difficult but it has also been very rewarding and a lot of fun.
I also really enjoy sewing. My grandmother made a lot of my outfits when I was little and it made me feel so special when I wore them. She first taught me how to use a machine and of course I took sewing in Home Ec when I was a teen but after my daughter was born I decided to take classes so I could do more with patterns. I love seeing her pride when she tells her friends â€œmy Mommy made it for meâ€. I hope to add some little dresses and accessories here sometime this year.
I hope you enjoy what you see and come back often. I donâ€™t pretend to be a professional, I just really love creating all these different things and try my very best to make quality items.
Thanks for stopping by!
