Spotlight on....

Welcome to our 7th installment of the Spotlight Series by Sophie n Me. Today we are meeting...
1. Your First name and name of your shop(s)?
Hi, I'm Kelly from Perfectly Paper

2. Day or night job if you have one. During the day I work from home as a clinical analyst for a pharmaceutical health insurance company. Basically, I do a lot of math.

3. Where do you get the inspiration for your designs/shop? My inspiration came from wanting to create gorgeous flowers that last forever. I wanted to keep the bouquet from my wedding and it didn't turn out so well. Now I create flowers that look beautiful the day of your wedding and continue to look great for years to come.

It isn't lunch time yet here in SoCal, but I had a strawberry/banana/peach/blackberry smoothie for breakfast this morning. Mini Paper Rose Hair Pin Hand Painted

6. Finish this sentence "I wish I could...." Quit my day job! 7. Deal or No Deal or Who wants to be a Millionaire? Who wants to be a Millionaire - takes skill instead of just luck.
8. What makes you smile? My husband and my cute kitties Paper Rose Pew Clip Hand Painted
9. What don't people know about you? Hmmm...probably lots of things. I have about 2 terabytes worth of movies and TV shows on my computer. :)
10. How many hours do you spend a day searching for stuff on Etsy? Not nearly as many as I should. I usually spend an hour a day on Etsy, some days a lot more and sometimes I go a few days without any Etsy-ness.
