my 9-to-5. my bread & butter. my Passion.

(at least until the weekend rolls around).



With four years of industry experience under my belt, I‘ve worked with many clients to
create designs ranging from glam and classy to fun and crazy. I‘ve created packaging,
album covers, posters, pamphlets, and everything in between.

Handmade geekery & well-loved doo dads.

primarily things made from other things.



I love finding new uses for old things, and have crafted enough to need a special room to do it in.
I tinker with most aspects of crafting, and am never afraid to tackle new techniques if the promise of making
something amazing is looming. Check me out on Etsy (right over here), where I occasionally sell my wares!

CUPCAKES & COOKIES & CALORIES, oh my!

delicious? you bet! nutritious? ...debatable.



I discovered a love for cake decorating when I was around the tender age
of twelve. Ever since, I’ve been experimenting with new recipes and exploring
exciting worlds of flavour. Invite me to your parties; I’ll bring the cake.

WHO SAYS A woman CAN’T BE A RENAISSANCE MAN?

the designer, the baker, the crafty stuff maker.




My name is Mary Paulusma, and I enjoy mentally redesigning billboards
as I drive down the street on my way to work. I’m based in Thunder Bay,
Ontario, where I currently hold the high score on Batman pinball at the
local theatre. Oh, and the stuff I promote on this site? If you’re interested
in hiring me, (or just dropping a line to say hi!) you can reach me at
mary@marypalooza.com. Don’t be shy!
