Here is Ali to introduce herself!

Hi, I'm Ali. I love to bake and I wish that I could do it everyday. I also love to hike and bike (mostly so I can bake somewhat guilt-free). When I'm not baking, hiking or biking, I enjoy crafting.

I've been crafting in some way or another since I was a kid. I can't draw (I wish I could) so learning how to fold origami has allowed me to be creative. My favorite craft, other than origami, is making a gingerbread house. I try to do one every Christmas.

I've been selling my origami flowers on Etsy since the beginning of July, so I am a bit of an Etsy newbie. You can find my colorful origami flowers, cupcake toppers, and paper supplies on Etsy at my shop, Pretty Paper Crafts:

I don't have a blog right now but you can follow me on Twitter (@origamicrafts) here:!/origamicrafts

Thanks for joining us Ali!  I LOVE all of your Beautiful Origami flowers!

Maybe you can stop by at Christmas time and show us one of your gingerbread houses since we had such a rough time last year!
