Shabby Chic Crafting Blog

Shabby Chic Crafting Blog

So this is the very first entry to my shabby chic crafting blog! Yay me! But all kidding aside folks, I take my very work very seriously.  Hello! and Thank you for stopping by!

At Shabby Chic Paper Crafting, I plan to share projects and ideas with you to inspire you, regardless the crafting level you find yourself at.  Some folks enjoy paper crafting, others enjoy mixed media; while others enjoy something in between.  As I take this shabby chic journey, I hope to improve on my crafting skills and try other mediums as well.

If you haven’t already done so, may I suggest you visit and subscribe to my YouTube Channel (Decor8yourlife), as I post many project shares and tutorials there.

Get to know me

A little bit about me. I’m a webmaster and SEO expert who loves to spend her days working with HTML, algorithms, and other programs.  I have written several different web-to-lead integration programs that require a high level of skill and knowledge in processes.  Eloqua and are two of the most difficult platforms to conquer, and I’m happy to say, I thought I could… and I did.  As my skills have taken me to a higher level, where I can now work from home and on my own terms, I use paper crafting and other arts as a method of self expression and relaxation.

I have built several websites in my time; however, my baby remains Decor8yourlife and it’s new sprout, Shabby Chic Paper Crafting.  I hope that you visit often.   As you will see first-hand the many changes that this Shabby Chic Crafting website will undergo.

Why Shabby Chic Paper Crafting?

Initially Shabby Chic Paper Crafting was designed as a sandbox environment.  It was meant to test features and SEO algorithms, as I work on a client’s site similar to this one.  Since I love paper crafting and the shabby chic genre so much, I thought it was about time to offer this site in full force.  You may find yourself clicking on a tab or two and not really finding anything other than a blank slate. Please bear with me as I work through the pages and upload content more desirable to what I had in mind.

Thank you again for visiting with me, and welcome!
