Edmond, OK
Hi all!!! I canNOT believe I'm here! Seriously! Me!!?! In the Dirt Pile!??!! I tell ya, nothing wakes you up quicker in the morning than seeing that you have a message from Lydia! No extra snoozing for me that day, ha! So many things were running through my mind and I couldn't wait to talk to her! I just couldn't believe my ears when she was asking if I would become a Dirty Girl!!! No brainer - YES, MA'AM, PLEASE and THANK YOU!!!!! And explaining what a Dirty Girl is to your hubby can be quite funny, at least in my house!

A little about me ~ My name is Angel (Angela R.) and I'm originally from Louisiana. I have 3 boys {17, 14 and 11} and have been married to my handsome hubby for over 20 years. We also have two dogs, also boys, so I'm totally out-numbered in my house! I served in the Air Force for 4 years, which is how I met my husband. He will have served for 22 years in March and to think I've known him since he was just a young Airman Basic - wow, one of us is getting old, ha! We've lived in Texas, Turkey, Pennsylvania, Hawaii, Texas again and now Oklahoma. I started out as a scrapbooker in Turkey, you know, back in those shaped-scissor cutting days! I dabbled here and there then was introduced to Stampin' Up! in Hawaii. I was hooked! I've been stamping ever since. That's also around the time that I joined Splitcoaststampers and I've been a Fan Club Member ever since. I love being able to chat with so many people that love crafting as much as I do! I still chat with some of those friends I "met" when I first joined!

I currently work full-time from home for a wealth management firm. Not the most exciting job, but I love being home when my boys get back from school. 'Blessed' doesn't even begin to cover it!

I'm truly honored and extremely excited to be here!!! To be a Dirty Girl has looong been a dream of mine, I only hope that I can live up to the name! Thank you, thank you, thank you for letting me join this amazingly talented group!!!
