For 15 years I was a television Journalist. I retired on my 5 year wedding anniversary, July 7, 2006 after realizing TV wasn't for me. After my beautiful son Miles was born June 2001, chasing bad guys, pulling 12 hours shifts away from home and reporting sad news just wasn't fascinating to me. I wanted to surround myself with pretty paper and happy colors.. so I decided to open the Paper Garden Boutique and fill it with all my favorite things.
Many of our customers tell us walking into our store is their happy place...I'm happy to provide that place because for me... the store was a dream that is now-- a reality!


I love to create invitations and make stationery. It's instant gratification... I'm a very impatient person so this is right up my alley.. fast, easy and fun!
