I am mom to 2 adult children: Anthony, 22 and Vanessa, 21. I am also a new grandma to Chloe Rose born Nov. 23, 2013 and Ralph Anthony born March 7, 2014. I am a Certified Trauma Registrar by day and a paper crafter by night! I have been paper crafting since I was a teen. Back then, I did not realize that I was actually scrapbooking. I was formally introduced to scrapbooking by my co-worker in 1992.
Once I had children, they became the inspiration for all of my creations. As each of their birthdays would come around, I would hand make all of their invitations. Then I’d make matching centerpieces, favors and banners.My desire to personalize and to give a handmade card/gift is what keeps me crafting. I feel that it is more personal and special when you create with your own two hands and from the heart.I have a shabby chic/vintage style in my crafting. I love using vintage images, lace and buttons. I am often inspired by my friends who also craft. I love browsing Pinterest for new ideas and inspiration. I sell my creations at local craft fairs and in a shop that specializes in handmade items. I am honored to be a part of a wonderful group of creative women.
