Lori Barnett - versamom
Hello everyone! I'm Lori Barnett - aka Versamom. I'm SUPER excited to be here on Splitcoaststampers as a Dirty Dozen Team Member! WOW!!! What an honor indeed! I have no doubt that being a "Dirty Girl" is gonna be a blast!
Here's a bit of "dirt" about myself. Like so many of you, I've been playing with all things crafty since I could hold a crayon. You name it...I was trying it. Sewing, crochet, candle making, beading, cross-stitch, basket weaving, etc. Can I get a witness? Yeah...I see you!
About a decade ago, my oldest daughter talked me into attending one of those "home parties". YOU KNOW what I'm talkin' about. We learned about 2-step stamping. I was blown away! I couldn't fill out the order form fast enough to buy all the goodies we just used. But...NO WAY was I EVER gonna buy any stamps that had to be colored in. NOT HAPPENIN'! I didn't have time to color...nor did I have the desire. Then...something happened. It was like the glitter fairy came down and put a magic spell on me to start coloring and buy every stamping and paper crafting tool I could get my inky fingers on! LOL! I'm really glad I did, because I'm having the time of my life! I also spent several years designing and teaching art stamping and coloring classes here in Arizona. I've had the honor of being on several design teams and even had a few projects published in magazines. There's nothing better than sharing my creative journey with other crafters who love it as much as I do. Clean and Simple (CAS) cards are my favorite, but, I love trying new styles and techniques. If you can stamp it, emboss it, die-cut it, stencil it, spray it, paint it or color it...let's create with it! I live in Gilbert, Arizona with my hubby and youngest of 5 kids. I'm so very blessed to also have 9 grandkids.
