Meet The [Day] Maker

Oh hey!

I'm Kerry, the hands + mastermind of creativity behind Day Maker Cards, [formerly 1cre8ivemess]. I'm a lover of color, patterns and all the small details. Making + mailing handmade cards is one of my favorite things to do and one of the easiest ways to share happiness. 

More than 20 years ago I began using my love of patterned paper to make custom scrapbooks for friends + customers. Including a coordinating handmade card was one of my signature moves and it's what really led to the focus of the business becoming handmade cards. I still scrapbook for myself and have quite the collection of albums full of my life adventures + vacation excursions. 

Fun, random facts: I'm a lover of diet coke and a hater of lima beans. Lowercase letters + ampersands make me happy and I'm almost always cold. Odd numbers are my favorite and I love HGTV + the food network. I'm freakishly good [and fast] at putting puzzles together and I love a good adventure. 

I share the w2 house with my better half Jon - [if you've seen me at an event he was probably there doing the heavy lifting while showing off his favorite card.] He's my favorite human and is the best - always encouraging me to try new techniques, buy more supplies [even if I don't really neeeeeeeeed them], and supporting my crazy dreams. I met him 15 years ago while bartending at the same restaurant and the rest is history. We have two of the most incredible chihuahua puppers, Harley and Demolition.
