Featured Shop of the Week: Origami Delights

I am happy to announce Origami Delights as our featured shop this week.



 I have had the pleasure of working with Nedra of Origami Delights on a few projects, including the Fall Festival product photo shoot, and the 30 Days of Thanks giveaway on her blog last November. Her work is high quality, and customer service is outstanding. She is offering fans a discount to her shop, and a giveaway. Keep reading to find out more!


Nedra says she started this journey because, "Honestly, I began folding paper as a means to "keep my hands busy" while I was on some downtime from work. I never expected the amount of joy I would find from folding each and every piece. I continue to create because I love what I do. Many people say to me "Wow, folding all those (stars, cranes, flowers, etc) must be monotonous!" but I find it both calming AND fun. I have folded thousands and thousands of tiny stars, hundreds of flowers and cranes and so much more, and not ONCE have I ever thought "Man, I really don't want to finish these" or "I'm tired of folding." It's something I don't ever see myself growing tired of."





"Interesting fact about me: I am clearly a person who has to have their hands busy all the time - my other profession is as a Massage Therapist!"


Like many other small business owners, Nedra says her biggest challenge is "Time!! Between family, multiple jobs, and my Etsy shop, my biggest challenge is splitting time appropriately between it all."


Nedra's favorite things include the color red, actor Johnny Depp, author Stephen King. She also says, "One of my favorite blogs is called Pen n' Paperflowers: She is not only full of fun, amazing craft
ideas, but she is also incredibly inspiring through her "Promise Me" lists, RAK's and overall pure heart. http://www.pnpflowersinc.com/. "

"I love to bake and I love to cook...I can't really say I have a "favorite" food because I kind of just love it all...lol." She finds beauty in all seasons, and her favorite way to relax is sleeping (me too!). Her favorite animal is a Tiger (white tigers especially), and adds, "my husband has a tiger tattoo on his shoulder...it was kind of meant to be, right?" Her favorite stores are craft stores, or anywhere she can feed her "paper addiction."

Nedra is also talented at curating Treasuries on Etsy. I love to look at the well-chosen items she brings together. It really is an art form, and she has mastered it! You can see her most recent treasuries here. One of my favorites is her Thinking Green, Thinking Spring.
