I’m Carolyn and I have always been drawn to all things PAPER!  It all started working in the retail world for the Limited Corporation where my love for fashion and  textiles took shape.  I then left the retail world to work for an Advertising Agency specializing in direct mail, and my love for all things PAPER bloomed!
