Mensah is currently making handmade wedding invitations and said she hopes to one day turn her hobby into a business.
“This woman got word of mouth that I make cards,” she said. “I presented her some of my work, and she gave me a theme, and it went from there. The wedding is in April of 2011, and so far I’ve made over 70 cards.”
Mensah said making cards has been a hobby of hers since her sophomore year of high school.
“People would look at some of my early stuff and say ‘Wow, this looks like a Hallmark card’,” she said. “I love being crafty, and I want to keep getting that wow factor.”
