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 have been in the crafting industry as an artist and designer for the last 16 years and have had the privelage of working with some of the most amazing companies and people in the industry. I love the special connection that's made between crafters, and sharing art with my crafty peeps has been such a great joy.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 look forward to creating new friends through the sharing of my art, and talents!
