Squeal - isn't that what every person does that is chosen to be a 'dirty' girl? I did that too; but it's possible I used the words cry and pee in my acceptance response - of course, this cannot be confirmed. wink

I am absolutely thrilled to be here! Stamping is what keeps me sane!

I live in Toto-land, I've been married for 25 years, we have 3 children, currently ages 20, 18, and 16 - of course, I'm only 26 years old...yeah, the math is REALLY confusing, yes? LOL

I am currently employed outside the home for the gentleman that started multiple hotel chains - Residence Inn, Candlewood Suites, Summerfield Suites, Value Place, and now his 5th national brand, WaterWalk Hotel Apartments. The job is very demanding but I truly love it. I'm sure you can see between 3 kids and my job, why I have a hobby that keeps me sane!

A long, long time ago, I was blessed to be able to stay home with our babes for a couple of years. My neighbor introduced me to scrapbooking and I hit it hard...but I did scrapbooking where you put all the BEST pictures in the album; so each page was filled with 4-6 photos - I loved it. But somehow, some way along that journey, I discovered handmade greeting cards. WOW - talk about instant gratification!! It's a real possibility that I tossed the scrapbooks aside...and it's possible that our children won't have much to look at when it comes to their younger years! #fail

But since then, as I've continued to create cards, 3D items, mixed media projects, etc., I also started digital Project Life so not all will be lost.

Our oldest is a junior at KState University but currently studying abroad in France for a year; our middle one is a senior in high school and will also graduate with her associates degree from the local community college, and the youngest one is doing his best to keep us hopping with sports.

Another interesting fact? Until May 2015, I had long, long, long hair - in fact, I cut 14 inches off the first time and I've gone shorter since - yes, this photo is the NEW me!

I don't really have a particular design style; I love creating whatever fits my fancy; I love to dabble a bit in mixed media, water color, Copics, colored pencils, many times combining any of those onto the same card.

Again, thank you for this amazing opportunity; I look forward to creating with you over the next 6 months!
