Pattie Goldman - Pattie G.
Hanover, PA
Hi there! I don't know what I'm more surprised about...the fact that I'm joining the Dirty Dozen or that Lydia really fooled me! The last thing I ever thought was that she was calling to ask me to get dirty! I probably would have screamed, but I was driving with my daughter in the car, so I maintained control...I couldn't stop smiling though!

Here's a little bit about me. My name is Pattie Goldman and I grew up in Baltimore, Maryland. I married my wonderful husband, Rich, 22 years ago and we have two children. My son, Matt, is 19 and a college student at University of Pittsburgh and my daughter, Julia, is 15 and a sophomore in high school. We live in Hanover, PA and we love it here! Of course, we have some furry family members too...three dogs! Our Yellow Lab is Dixie, our Pomeranian mix is Shadow and our other Lab is my daughter's 95 lb. "puppy" named Lacey. She will be 1 this month!

I started scrapbooking when my neighbor introduced me to her scrapbooks and I was immediately hooked. I just had to have everything and my scrapbooks filled up quickly! That led to many hours of blog viewing and I found card making...I just had to join in the fun! I actually won Honorable Mention at JustRite Stamps for the very first card I ever blogged...I couldn't believe it! I started coloring images just a few years ago and once again, found something I love to do! Card making is my hobby...my stress release. There is something about giving a hand-crafted card to someone that feels like nothing else!

I work full-time as an Office Manager of a furniture store where I have worked for over 19 years. You can find me in my craftroom late at night after working for 12 hours on a regular basis!

When I think of my "style," I really can't settle into just one! I love all styles...although fun and cute and a little shabby chic always find their way into my designs.

Thank you so much to Lydia and the SCS family for welcoming me and making me feel at home! I am thrilled to have this opportunity! Hugs!
