...that's me! It's hard to believe that 12 years have passed since I discovered the wonderful world of Rubber Stamping & Cardmaking! Paper Art was, and still is, my very first love.
In 1996, one of my co-workers was fairly excited to tell me about a new hobby she'd discovered after attending a Creative Memories party. I have to admit, I became curious when she said her dad had to build a special set of shelves to house her growing stamp collection!
A few days later, she arrived at the office with two HUGE plastic tubs that were filled to the brim with markers, ink, scissors, paper and stamps galore! It was truly love-at-first-sight and marked the beginning of a very special journey!
Since then I have discovered more art than I've ever dreamed of including but not limited to: fat books, skinny books, round robins, swaps, trades, journals, altered playing cards, tins, matchboxes, books, CDs and cabinet cards, bookbinding, assemblage, mail art, ATCs, and mixed media collage. But, more important than all of this combined ~ I discovered YOU! The warm, generous people who have filled my life and my heart to o.v.e.r.f.l.o.w.i.n.g! I am richer for it. I am blessed. Thank you! - xo
