Hello and Welcome!  I’m Heather, the owner of The Paper Stash!

A Brief History of Me: Whether it was designing a cover for a story, props for an event, or a whole board of information and facts for a project, one of my favourite projects to do is take on design. I attended art school part time from 1986-2000, so art and design are basically ingrained in my being!  I’ve been a certified photographer since I completed college in 2005.  Since 2011, The Paper Stash has been my outlet for creativity and my design skills.  The shop has become a huge success, shipping thousands of handmade orders worldwide.  I run The Paper Stash as a small design studio comprised of just myself for the time being while raising my 2 kids alongside my husband.  I am passionate about utilizing my creative skills and easing the stress of event planning with new products everyone can enjoy for a multitude of events.

A few extra tidbits about me:

  • I am a huge introvert.  Probably why I have the job that I do!
  • I love hiking and camping in forests.
  • I love my coffee black, dark roast preferred!
  • I have two tattoos, with plans in the works for more.
  • I married the love of my life on our 10th anniversary and have been busy raising our 2 amazing kids on top of running The Paper Stash
  • I’ve had almost every hair colour out there.
  • I’m drawing, sketching or painting ideas on a daily basis. It’s basically my life-long obsession.
  • I love to get a good night’s rest.  I am definitely NOT a night owl these days! (see above: “I love my coffee…”)

Welcome! I’m Heather Joy, owner of The Paper Stash.
