Michele and Jesse Applehans became the new owners of Paper Posies in November 2008. It is a dream come true for both of them. Michele LOVES scrapbooking and has wanted to own a scrapbook store for a long time. Jesse has desired to help her fulfill that dream while fulfilling his own dream of becoming a small business owner. So, together, they embark on this adventure with ambition, commitment to continue bringing you the latest and greatest, and lots of excitement!
Michele has loved scrapbooking for as long as she can remember (she received her first scrapbook at age 8). Her techniques and styles have come a long way since then, but the most important aspect of scrapbooking to her has always been preserving precious memories through pictures, keepsakes, and journaling. Of course, all the paper, ribbon, and embellishments make that process FUN and EXCITING!
Looking at, talking about, and handling “cool” paper and scrapbooking supplies still gives her an adrenaline rush! When she is not scrapbooking, Michele can be found spending time with her family (which includes her husband and two very energetic little boys), exercising, planning family projects and activities, making her house a home, cooking, and playing the piano.
