My name is Ella and I am the girl behind Paper Umbrella blog. I am a recent college graduate living in rainy Portland, Oregon, trying to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life.  I spend my days adventuring, raising my plant babies, trying every happy hour in the city, and keeping Portland weird.

I created this blog to document my life and the things I love most--crafting, art, design, travel, music, food, photography. I'm the type of person who will elaborately package your sandwich in washi tape and craft paper because I think it's important to put thought into the smallest details and make life more beautiful in every way you can. I hope you enjoy my blog...thanks for stopping by!

I would love to hear from you with any questions, concerns, suggestions, or just to say hi! If you are interested in collaborating in any way, don’t hesitate to contact me.  I can be reached at paperumbrellablog@gmail.com, or you can always post questions in the comments section below :)
