Pauline Godfrey - lotsofstamps
When I received a private message from Splitcoaststampers, I thought someone was emailing me to ask question about one of my cards. Little did I know that it was Lydia asking me to join the Dirty Dozen team! I couldn’t believe what I was reading, asking me to a be a “Dirty Dozen Gal” – WOW! Of course I said YES!. I am just thrilled to be among a very talented group of ladies.
I reside in Ontario Canada. I am married to my best friend for 35 years and have 2 wonderful children. We have a 30yr old son and a 28 yr old daughter. I work full time as an accounts payable senior clerk for a corporate Energy company, which can be stressful at times, so a night I turn to stamping which I find very relaxing.
I have been crafting every since I can remember. My Mom taught me how to cook, sew & knit at a very early age. As years went on I picked up crocheting, cross stitching and basically anything else crafty, and then eventually about 15 years ago I was introduced to stamping. Once I saw how a heat gun turned the embossing powder into something shiny I was sold, and never looked back. I love every aspect of card making, from CAS to collages, stamping to water colouring, I’ve pretty much tried it all. I found out about Splitcoaststampers while I was at my first Stampin Up party. As a ‘newbie’ stamper at that time, I was thrilled to find such a website that provides so much information and how to’s, it was my constant go to place for ideas.
Over the last 10 years I have taught classes at a couple of different Stamp/scrapbooking stores in my area. I still get excited when people are wowed by my creations.
Not only do I turn to stamping in my spare time, but I travel on weekends and holidays with my husband to share in his hobby “photography’. To see some of his work you can view it on my blog under the category “Bill’s Nature Pictures”.
Thanks to SCS and to Lydia for an amazing opportunity to be on the Dirty Dozen team. I look forward to the next 6 months, so let the fun begin!
