Thank you for stopping by my blog!
Over the years I've blogged about my family, our adventures and the handmade items I design

I originally began this blog as a 'scrapbook' for our son Griffin. Knowing how important documenting memories and having photos are I shared quite a bit. In 2014 my goal is to blog more!

Currently my blog focuses on my handmade + confetti designs
which happens to be my passion right now

If you have an interest in a custom banner, cupcake toppers, confetti or other party goods browse through my posts, you will find a category section to the right for easy navigation.

Missy Made It!

Over the past 15+ years I have been incredibly blessed to have this online business I call Missy Made It! It allows me to be a stay/work-at-home Mom, have creative freedom, make wonderful friends and enjoy what I do!

With the encouragement of my amazing husband Mike, in the spring of 2013 it blossomed! What originally started all those years ago as a scrapbooking + paper piecing business suddenly became something more!

My creative focus is on designing custom party goods! I love designing custom banners, confetti, cupcake toppers, favor tags and more! I've added 'Sweet Paper Sprinkles' to the beginning of my business name because I thought it was fitting. So, now when you see 'Sweet Paper Sprinkles by Missy Made It!' you can be assured it's one in the same.

I sell locally in my small town in Virginia as well in my Etsy Shop ~

I've made an effort to make it easy to navigate my blog if you are looking for a specific party idea. At the top right you will find a category page. This includes a price list and the various party elements I design. If you have a specific theme in mind, please email me and we can discuss design! Email ~

It was great fun making this for a very sweet little girl!
