Hi my name is Amy.....and I am addicted to stamps.
Interests: I am happily married and the proud mother of 4 boys, 5 bonus daughters, 3 bonus son-in-laws, and lots of grandkids! Some of my boys deal with the effects of different needs. Some battle Bi-Polar, while some battle the effects of Autism, and sensory intergration disorder. All my children are my lifes greatest treaure! I live in Oregon, and divide my time between my family, designing, church, and friends. I am a self decribed "Scrapbook/ stamp/craft Fanatic"! I eat, sleep, and breathe it! I stay home and design full time, and take care of my kids and home full time too! (ok...obviously I can't do both full time so the house is messy and I work in between kid emergencies:) I love to create art because I want those who come after me to have a greater understanding of where they come from, and God willing a greater understanding of themselves.
