Star Craft is my original creation born out of my love for making the froebel paper star.

Tell us about your business.

I started making paper stars to decorate a metaphysical gift shop ceiling that I owned and operated with my mother. Visitors loved the stars and wanted some for themselves. The business grew from there- I started making star mobiles for customers to take home their little part of the shop. I sell the paper so people can make their own stars.

Tell us about your workspace, shop, or studio.

I work from home and have a little office which i work out of. I actually have star stuff all over the house! I stock up for Christmas inventory the entire year before.

What inspires you?

My customers! Asking for new things, certain colors, giving feedback. I would be nothing with out the customers that I love dearly.

What makes your business stand out?

Colorful beautiful handmade original items that I sell.

What advice would you give an aspiring creative entrepreneur?

Go for it! and never give up :)

What does American Made mean to you?
