Hello! I'm Laura Bray. I'm a professional craft designer and blogger. I live in Southern California with my physicist husband (very helpful when I have to do projects that involve engineering!) and an inspiring, ten year old daughter who often brainstorms projects with me. (In fact, she's even done some professional design work herself!). My goal is to inspire busy women to live a life of creativity and balance.
I believe crafting should be quick, simple, and easy on the environment. I focus on functional crafting and helping other women make their lives beautiful, intentional and maybe a little more organized.
If you are interested in hiring me for any of the below services, please email me or call me at (949) 533-8296.
I am happy to help you create stunning craft projects that will highlight the versatility and ease of use of your products. Projects can be developed for your website/blog, marketing materials, or packaging. Please contact me to discuss your project needs. A written proposal will be submitted to you upon discussion of the scope of the project. My rates are competitive and my service is professional. As a crafter with an MBA, I understand that you need projects that will sell your product! My client list includes, Plaid, Velcro®, Adhesive Technologies, Rit Dye, and many more.
