I started paper crafting about 11 years ago when I decided to do my own DIY wedding. I realized how much I enjoyed making my wedding stationary, favor boxes, welcome gifts, and coordinating it all. I self taught myself by watching a ton of youtube videos....I stumbled across some craft fair idea videos and that's when it really began. I share this hobby with my sister. I do not have a website. We do local craft fairs. I am married, no children, unless you count our two cats. The cats came with him, and he was right I do love my furry children. We lost our fur babies in 2020 almost a month apart in Feb (Chloe 18 years) and Mar (JR 22 years). We got a another fur baby kitten, July 2020 (Shadow). He is so affectionate and we love him so much!
I'm pretty picky when it comes to music...but anyone who knows me knows that I am a HUGE PRINCE fan. ** THE GOAT **
Paper crafts - I love 3D paper crafts i.e.. treat holders, gift bags and boxes packaging, and handmade embellishments. I do make cards as well. I watched a lot of swap reveal videos on You Tube, and I thought wow that's incredible I would love to join.
Because my favorite musician is PRINCE, clearly anything purple is all right with me. I do like neutrals and sage green as well. I am loving MINT GREEN. I've been sleep on that color. It's the new neutral and goes with every color. Love it.
I own a Silhouette Cameo and several manual die cutting machines (Big Shot, Gemini, and the little one made by Spellbinders). I truly enjoy designing cut files using Silhouette Studio and creating 3D crafts.
Regarding crafts ... I am not really into vintage or the mixed media look. I don't like crafts just thrown together, and it looks like a child's art project. I like more of a scrapbook design. Mats, stamped images, sentiments, embellishments. I admire all the work done for Shabby Chic, but it's not something that I do. I do like different textures for interest. I like simple, clean designs. But I do not want to limit anyone's creativity by my dislikes.
