Edi is the paper artist behind memoriesforlifesb and the featured Etsy Blogger for August. She gets a lot of her inspiration and ideas from reading from advertisements for layout designs and from junk mail for color combos and unique folding techniques. Edi explained with a smile, “I can see something someone else has made and then visualize how I can make it – but better and with my own unique touch!”
Edi has been paper crafting for more than 12 years. She started out creating handmade cards with stamps and then moved into scrapbooking. She loves anything to do with paper and can make just about anything with it.
In addition to paper crafting, which is Edi’s passion, she is employed as a machine operator at a semi transmission factory and is working on her MBA. When asked if she had a plan to combine her MBA with her paper crafting, she replied, “I would love nothing more than to run a paper crafting business full time. Even if this were not to happen, there are many things I am learning from my schooling – most importantly, time management. Working full time, going to school full time and running my Etsy shop really helps me prioritize and manage my time.”
Now, can you guess what the “sb” stands for in her shop name?
