Welcome to my blog. I would like to create a place where I can share my love of crafts with you. I started paper crafting in August of 2011. I just had my one year anniversary. I love making cards, doing scrapbook pages, creating flowers, quilling and many other crafts. I found out about greeting cards when watching a Stamp TV video a few months later. I am hooked on card making now. Love everything about it. I hope that you will join me in my love of crafts.

I've been asked to participate in a unique blog hop by my friend and  super talented teammate at 
Heartfelt Creations.
 The purpose of the hop is to introduce you to me and what makes my creative world tick. Olga chose me as her buddy. She is an amazing crafter and she is such an inspiration to me. She is very talented!!
What am I working on? 
I am working on the next collection from Heartfelt Creations. It is an amazing collection. I am having a lot of fun working with it. I am also turning my craftroom inside out LOL!! I am re-doing it and getting organized.
Why do I create what I do? 
My craftroom is my therapy and my me time. All the stresses of the day melt away when I am crafting, It brings me so much happiness.
How does my creative process work? 
I look at what I am working with and, usually just sit back and design in my head. Then I turn it into a project.
Do I have a favorite tool that I can't live without? 
I would have to say flower making tools are a must have. I love to make flowers.

I hope you have gotten to know me better, and see why I love crafting so much. I have to thank my friend Olga for choosing me. I look forward to crafting for many more years, and make some new friends along the way.
