Who we are

Parables are defined as “earthly stories with heavenly meanings.” In the Bible, Jesus frequently used parables to illustrate divine truths, as this form of illustration could be easily understood and remembered by to those who were not spiritually blind.  Simply put, the parables spoken by Jesus were a blessing to those who had willing ears.

Paper crafting is defined as the collection of art forms employing paper or card as the primary artistic medium for the creation of three-dimensional objects. Add to this medium various other elements such as ribbon, embellishments, inks and sentiments, and you begin to understand and appreciate the reason the paper crafting world is so large and varied!

Entwine these and you arrive at the vision for this blog! “Parables of a Crafter” was created as a means for artistic and written expressions to be combined and used to reach, teach and touch others through art and word.

Theresa Calderini is the Founder of “Parables of a Crafter”. Her love of paper crafting and writing stirred a passion within her that brought the two things she enjoys most together in a way that would bring both blessing and pleasure to others. Theresa has been crafting and writing as far back as she can remember, and she has a desire to help others recognize the importance of using the gifts and talents within themselves. to bless others.

Along with this blog, Theresa runs two other volunteer groups “Card Angels of Florida” and “Restoration Art.
