Iâ€™m a Craft-aholic (and I donâ€™t use that term loosely). Yes, Iâ€™ll own up to it because I know my parents would tell you that I have been passionate about the arts and crafting since childhood. In fact, I remember getting in trouble when I was a child because I kept catching paper on fire while trying to heat emboss on our gas stove. Iâ€™m sure I am not the only one to ever do that!
I progressed from â€œopen flame heat embossingâ€ to cutting strips of paper to add names and captions to all of my dadâ€™s magnetic photo albums (I donâ€™t think he was too crazy about all the stars I used to dot my â€œiâ€™sâ€ and end my â€œyâ€™s). We moved a lot, so of course I had to create my own stationery to keep in touch with friends. And no flea market would be complete without my brother and me selling the jewelry and hand-sewn purses we created.
Fast forward to the present...I enjoy teaching scrapbooking, mini albums, and altered art classes where I get to see the creative spirit come alive in others. I am also a Freelance Writer who gets to write about my crafting passions from the home that I share with my wonderful husband and incredible son in Leesburg, VA.
I enjoy paper crafting, jewelry making, art journaling and altering items.
