Hi, my name is MariLynn. I have been doing crafts my whole life. I started stamping and making cards 30 years ago when my aunt gave me my first stamp. Of course for the first 20 of those years my attempts at making cards was rather pathetic. It wasn't until I stumbled upon Splitcoaststampers that I really started to improve.

I started following the challenges. I have been pushed and pulled out of my comfort zone many times by the SCS challenges. My kids encouraged me to start a blog which really pushed me out of my comfort zone. My biggest fear was what if I make a blog and no one looks at it. But I did it anyway. Here is my blog: Mississippi-McGyver

Since discovering Splitcoaststampers, if a day goes by and I haven't checked in, I feel lost. All my friends live here in this community. My other hobbies and interests include, music, and photography. My husband I have 3 grown kids, a son in law, a future son in law and a teenager as well as two dogs and a cat.
