Hi there, I’m Norine Borys. Welcome to my website where you’ll find all the pretty things! I am never happier than when I’m playing with paper or paint or fabric or yarn or frosting and here is where you’ll see the results of my playing and learn how I’ve made them. I have always been “crafty”, declaring my favorite subjects in Kindergarten to be Cutting and Glueing. I have raised 4 children and am now rewarded for my efforts with 2 small grandchildren. I’ve been married to the same long-suffering man for over 35 years and his devotion makes everything alright. While my children were growing up I had a home-based business making all types of crafts and selling them at Farmer’s Markets and large Craft Fairs. Now that our nest is empty, I love to spend my time making cards, scrapbooking and painting. I hope you find things here that will inspire you to take time for yourself to create something beautiful. Check out my Designing page to learn about where I teach and the companies I design for.
