About Me

I am a very blessed woman that lives in York, Maine. I have enjoyed fifteen years as a successful  retailer, specializing in decorative accessories and designing/creating permanent floral arrangements. My experience began in glorious North Conway, NH and happily relocated to the wonderful location in Dock Square, Kennebunkport, Maine.

I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunities and experiences of planning, budgeting, traveling, and promoting my business. Best of all, was enjoying life with the wonderful clientele and staff I worked with year by year. It was always a pleasure to go to work every day!

I met and married the man of my dreams, Chris. My husband and I shared the dream for me to stay home to raise our children. We were so happy that God blessed me with the opportunity to sell my retail shop and I had our little angel, Susan, the very next day. A year and a half later, my little guy, Robbie, joined the fun.

Crafts have always been part of my life. I have experience with cut-and-pierced lampshades, basketmaking, sewing, floral design and, yes, power tools! My favorite of all has been paper crafts. Even as I work with the medium every day, I cannot pass a stationary store without being pulled in.

Paper crafts are the perfect combination of my life as a SAHM and professional crafter. I produce special projects for private clients that are looking for custom decorations and keepsakes to personalize their special occasions. The tools I use to create fabulosity for my Eventful Keepsakes clients are the same ones I share with my two small children, my family and friends.

I continue to appreciate the invaluable support of the network of people who offered amazing resources and assistance through the years. I am lucky to have an unbelievably generous husband who supports my creative path. For that, I am truly greatful! Thank you, dear -

So, follow along with me - on this blog, facebook and twitter - to find interesting ideas you can use to help expand creative interests with your family and community!

Happy Day, Laurel Lee Pollard
