I am a crafty Mom of 3 currently living just south of DC in Virginia. I enjoy all kinds of crafts and am willing to try them to see how they turn out.
I am a Pinterest addict & love taking on new challenges.
There are just not enough hours in the day to complete all the projects that I would love to try.
In 2005, I was introduced to scrapbooking and it has just evolved from there.
In 2009, I started digital scrapbooking and have been involved with several Creative Teams for digital designers.
We moved to California in 2012 and I connected with a Close to My Heart Consultant and after using her stash at crops, I decided to sign up in July 2015. I really liked all the products that were in the New Consultant kit and I figured I would be my own best customer.
I have been pleasantly surprised and now create monthly card kits and host parties online for customers who want to earn free CTMH products.
I won my first Silhouette Portrait machine in March of 2013 through a digital scrapbooking contest and the first time I used it I knew I had to have the bigger Cameo machine.
The same way I learned to digital scrapbook is what I applied to the Silhouette Cameo…. I researched and tried to find out all I could on what I could do.
I am a self-taught Silhouette user who was overjoyed when in February 2016, an announcement came across my email for a Instructor training by Terri Johnson Creates and I knew it was meant to be.
I immediately signed up and in September 2016 I was part of the first graduating class of the TJC Licensed Instructor Program.
Later in 2016, Terri also announced a hands on training and I jumped at that opportunity too. While I mostly worked with paper & vinyl with my cutting machine, I knew it had so many more possibilities and the hands on event helped me learn more about my “addiction”.
It’s a work in progress and I hope to expand on offering help & classes by online conference calls and local lessons.
I enjoy all the crafting time I get and hope to share that with all of you.
