Hi, I am Danielle Ericsson, Illumienate is my creation.

The idea for illuminate was born a few years ago while sitting in a café in Budapest Hungary. A little candle on the table was wrapped in paper and I loved the way the light danced through it. I’ve taken the idea and expanded it to create a whole array of votives, table numbers and center pieces. I create them large or small, subtle or brash, elegant or whimsical.
Anything is possible with your lumie, let me know what you’d like to have at your celebration and I will work with you to see it created.

I love creating almost anything. Creativity runs in my family. My grandfather is an experienced carpenter. My mother has done many things like tole painting, glass work, sewing, and jewelry My father is a jack-of-all trades. He’s builds cabinets and repairs computers…you name it, he can do it. My brothers are also great artists; they both can draw anything.

I love to create and develop new ideas. I especially like to make paper creations. In addition to all the things you see here on Illumienate, I also make lots of cards for all seasons.

Right now Illumienate is a part-time gig for me. I love what I get to create for Illumienate and I also love taking care of our son.
I am married and live in eastern Massachusetts with my husband.
