Hello!

Welcome to the Retreat! I’m a full-time web maintenance/design/support business owner (along with my husband, Brian, we own Integrant Services, LLC.) BUT, when I want to escape from computer pixels, I head on down to my Retreat and papercraft for hours on end.

I love inspiring and sharing with you, and helping you gain confidence in the art of papercrafting. YOU are an artist – So, what are you waiting for? Grab your favorite stamps, paper and ink, and share your creativity with the world!
