So Happy You're Here!

My name is Ivana C, and I live in the beautiful prairies of Canada, where we are surrounded by wheat fields, very chilly winters, and never-ending skies. By day, I am a photographer, capturing babies and young families. When I'm not behind the camera, I love to papercraft, write, and teach papercrafting. I also enjoy DIY'ing, decorating, creating recipes, cooking, exploring new countries, eating delicious food + drinking good, GOOD coffee. Full disclosure: I can be a bit of a coffee snob...Although when in dire situations, any caffeine will do.

My favorite thing of all is spending time with my bff (a.k.a. my hubby)! Whenever any of the above collide with time together, I am one happy gal! 

I am thankful every single day for being able to fill my life with so many creative venues and things I love. I started this blog as a way to share my love of papercrafts, never imagining that one day I'd be able to share it with other artists around the world, whom I'd grow to call friends. It's perhaps my favorite part of this creative journey.

If you're visiting for the first time, you will find a heap of papercrafting ideas, and from time to time, I also share other crafts + DIY's, as well as behind-the-scenes action of our life. I also like to share product reviews, videos, and quick tutorials featuring my favorite papercrafting techniques and supplies. 

I hope you'll find something that inspires you, and I hope you'll come back again soon!
