My Story


     It all began about the year 2000,  when I attended a ladies night out.  We stamped cards around a friends pool table and I wondered why anyone would want to do this!  The next ladies night out, someone showed me what to do, and I was hooked.   Stamping and Scrapbooking have become an addiction! 
     Since then I have moved several times; and, so have my stamps and supplies.  At one point, we lived in a camp trailer and moved from campground to campground.  My loving husband and teenage sons, put up with my stamps and supplies taking up half the storage area; and, they gladly pulled everything out, filling up the picnic table when I wanted to scrapbook our adventures.  I  worked at our kitchen table and had to put things away so we had a place to eat!  Now we live in Phoenix where I have my own craft room and love sharing my passion with others.

     Now for the rest of the story.  I have a loving husband, Jim; and, we have two sons.  I have five stepchildren, and we have three "adopted foster daughters", have had eight exchange students, and have ten grandchildren, two "adopted" grandchildren, and two great grandchildren!  Everytime I think empty nest syndrome is about to kick in, God sends more kids!   We seem to have someone coming or going much of the time!   
     Aside from stamping and my family, I also like to read, make jewelry, do hardanger embroidery, swim, travel, hunt, ride motorcycles behind my husband, go to car shows with my sons, and attend church.
