Well I still can't quite believe it. Me a Dirty Girl?! Wow. Never in my wildest dreams would I have ever thought this little hobby of mine would earn me such a prestigious title!

Hi everyone, my name is Katarina Menzies, aka KatarinaM, or just Kathy. I live in NE Pennsylvania with my sweetheart Jimmy and my two children Tyler and Julie. Two English Springer Spaniels complete our little household.

I have been a crafter/artist of one kind or another since I could first hold a crayon. I was always doodling, sketching, painting or creating something. I think I have dabbled in hundreds of art mediums and craft materials from oil painting and watercolor to polymer clay, decorative painting and scrapbooking. I've tried almost all of it!

I guess it must've been about 15 years ago when I picked up my first PSX stamp and created a card. I loved the miniature works of art I could make and give away. At that time stamping was pretty basic, with limited materials so my interest eventually petered out. I picked it up again almost three years ago and was hooked. Splitcoaststampers was one of my first sources for learning new techniques and I have visited almost daily ever since. It truly is an amazing resource and a warm community of like-minded people. I am honored to be a part of it. Thank you SCS!
