I am soooo excited to have been selected as a Guest Designer for Kinderstampo!!
I can't wait to share my creations with all of you and to get to know some new crafty ladies!!

Let me tell you a little bit about myself!!

For me living is all about my family. I have 3 wonderful kids and they are the most important people in my lives. I try to tell them I love them everyday. My life would not be complete without their wonderful faces to brighten my day!!


Crafting is my passion. I have been a crafty person since I was a child. My mother was the Brownie leader and always doing some kind of crafting thing. I have dabbled in so many things! Cross-stitch, needlepoint, macrame, jewelry making, knitting, sewing, altered art, scrap booking, card making....I am sure I have missed so many of them. Crafting is something that I just couldn't do without in my life! It has given me strength when I thought the world was crumbling around me and it has given me purpose when I have had none! Crafting is such a fabulous and important part of my life. I also am very passionate about sharing all things crafty with my friends and well...let's face it just about anyone that will listen! LOL! I hope that I can share some of that passion with you!!


So many things in my life inspire me. I find inspiration in nature and the world around me. I find inspiration in the many talented friends I have. Life in general is where I find my inspiration. I have been going through some rough things recently and I have been trying to find inspiration wherever I can and I have found that it is always out there if you open your heart and mind to will find it!

Sept NSSS Weekend Challenges

Had a fun time this weekend with my peeps from NSSS!! They have been my friends through thick and thin for years now! A couple times of year we do a weekend of challenges. This past week was that weekend. So, while I was at a local crop I got these two projects done.

Card using a card sketch she provided for us. I used scraps from one of the girls at the crop I was at. The buttons are from a baggie of buttons I got at the Goodwill last week. I used Beacon adhesive to attach the buttons and ATG for the paper.

This layout is also using a sketch the hostess this time provided. I love these photos and I think this came out so cute. The patterned paper and the word strip are from We R Memory Keepers. The solid cardstock is from scrap. The tickets are from Tim Holtz and inked around the edges with Distress Ink. The dots on the green are Viva Decor Pearl Pens. I used pop dots for the tickets and the title strip, ATG for the paper and Helmar Acid Free glue for the photos. I find that you need to use liquid glue to attach things to the glitter paper.
