A little about me

Hi and thank you for stopping by! My name is Martha Lucia (Lucy), I reside in Southern Nevada with my beautiful blended family. I come from a family of artisans and crafters. My mother was a teacher for over 30 years where she thought arts and crafts for over 25 years. She made handmade felt toys, dolls, wedding decorations, and flower arrangements. She taught many workshops and kept a storefront for all the crafts she created until she retired. I guess you can say I have the creative bug since I was a toddler as I attended many of her workshops.
I started paper crafting before I had my first son over18 years ago. I handmade his birth announcements and fell in love with anything that was related to paper crafts including scrapbooking, card making, hand-lettering, and calligraphy. Over the years I never lost the spark but continue to craft until I found my passion in making paper botanicals. make my botanicals using a combination of hand and machine cut, mixing different type of cardstock and other papers along with different techniques. Every paper botanical is assembled with immense craftsmanship and attention to detail.
