Hi there and welcome to my blog. Scrapbooking, card making and crafting in general are my passion. I love everything about being creative. It nourishes the mind and comforts the soul. I have just recently joined Stampin' Up as a demonstrator because of the great quality of all their products. I am a hobbyist but if you are interested in a workshop or a demo or a card class with some friends, just let me know via email. In the meanwhile, you can visit me on my Stampin' Up site at to order any products. Hope you drop by often as I plan to post plenty of cards. Thanks.
Interests: Card making, scrapbooking, knitting, crocheting, teaching, reading, crossword puzzles, cooking, baking, gardening
