LIFE AS PAPER began as a hobby – a way for me (Niki) to entertain myself and get more creative than my work crunching numbers as an engineer allowed. While my husband, Gregory, was busy in a whirlwind of full-time work and studying for his MBA, there had to be something I could do – something that would kill some time and let me express myself, too.
By the end of 2011 I was falling back in love with something I had always enjoyed – crafting handmade invitations and paper goodies. Soon I was sharing my creations with the world through Etsy, and getting amazing feedback from happy customers across the States and beyond.
A lot has changed since then: having kids and quitting my job, expanding my business with two new partners who I’ve happened to know since birth (my wonderful sisters Keller and Caroline), moving houses, and launching a brand-new website. Creating high-quality invitations and paper goodies makes us happy, and that’s reflected in our products! It’s a blessing to do what we love, while being at home with the people closest to our heart.
