You are just the person I hoped would show up, so welcome, I am glad you are here!
I think I have been crafting -- in one form or another -- my whole life. Like many card makers, I began my paper journey as a scrapbooker, and then, at some point, I was lured in to the at-home-party stamping craze. Wood blocks. Stamping Wheels. Brads. Eyelets. (So much hammering.) But then, life happened, and my crafty play dates fell few and far between the responsibilities of family and career.
Fast forward to 2020.
When my school closed in March 2020, I took a deep breath. And then I took another. And it felt good. Relaxation. Simplicity. Self-care. That was a turning point for me. I purchased six random Copic markers that did not blend together at all. I found all our favorite crafty YouTubers and binge watched for months. And somewhere along the way, I discovered my crafty self again.
A few years later...
I am a card maker. I find inspiration in the kindness of this hobby, in the community that welcomes everyone with open arms, and in the power of giving. Especially the giving.
And here I am, in my little piece of the internet, documenting this journey.
