Monique Mason is the Owner of ButterBeeScraps' Artistic Treasures. She originally opened the store in January 2013 with just a few filigrees and charms, hoping to sell a couple of hundred dollars worth of trinkets per month to fund her addiction for scrapbooking. Well, little did she know that the store would take off with many repeat customers coming back for more, and more, and even more!
Monique has a Mechanical Engineering background with 14 years of professional work experience. She has one son, who is soon-to-be 18 years old, and lives in beautiful British Columbia with the love of her life. Monique's creative journey started with scrapbooking in 2010, and has quickly expended into other areas, such as mixed media, altered art and jewelry making. You can visit Monique's YouTube channel to sneak a peak at her creations and several free tutorials that she offers.
Monique was a member of the Wild Orchid Crafts design team for 6 months, and has guest designed for Ephemera's Garden on Etsy. When she is not busy packaging orders or shopping for new goodies to add to the ButterBeeScraps store, she is busy making flatware jewelry for her second business - Monique's Jewelry Designs.
