My Husband, our three dogs and I live in Annapolis Maryland and have a small cottage in Chincoteague Island Virginia. Once Spring arrives we spend as many weekends as we can in CI right thru Thanksgiving.
I have been crafty my whole life, and come from a pretty creative family. My Mimi (Grandmother) was an Egger. Where you use different eggs as your medium. My Mom did counted thread work aka needlework. My Dad was a decoy carver. My Sister and I both did needlework in our teens and twenties and she now knits up a storm!
My card making hobby started in 2002 when my friend Jen’s Mom introduced me to Stampin’ Up!. It has evolved into having a home Studio and selling my cards here on my blog. I have no formal training. But I do love to take classes, as many as I can! I have done Jen Doves Copic Boot Camp, TWICE! I have taken a Wreath Builder class with Gina Krupsky of Gina K Designs. I have also done several classes with Danielle Walls of Neat & Tangled. My copic skills are the ones I work on most and I try and take classes twice a month with Nancy Sheads of Rowhouse Greetings.
I am a Product Demonstrator for Demo Days at Photoscraps .
I am a Design Team Member for Papercraft Business Challenges.
My main goal is inspire others with my cards. My ultimate goal is to continue on my journey of being a Designer.
