Gloria spent many years in the high tech industry and when that door closed, she decided to open a new door and do something completely different - plus better for the environment and her own peace of mind.
She started with handmade paper, available in her Etsy shop PoppyHillPaper. She creates handmade paper using wildflowers and grasses picked from her own home in the Sierra foothills of California.
But her true love has always been books.She loves reading, and has saved nearly all of the books she's read over the years. She loves books but realized that she needed to find new homes for some of them. When she learned that so many surplus books ending up in landfills, Gloria realized that she could combine her love of books with her enjoyment of creating. And MyBooklandia was born!
MyBooklandia specializes in home decor and accents made from upcycled and recycled, books. It's a way to share Gloria's love of books with other book lovers. She offers everything from lamps to clocks and candle holders to indoor planters and more.
