THE DIRTY DOZEN? WHAT?
What an absolute honor and shock to be considered to be a part of this unique and elite group of creative card makers! My inspiration comes from so many sources within the Splitcoaststampers.com community of members. My sincere thank you to each of you who continue to keep me motivated and encouraged with your very kind comments to my 'razldazl' gallery. I just pray I can continue to earn the honor of being one of the DIRTY DOZEN. I admire each of you and your willingness to offer help when needed. Thank you, thank you!

My passion for paper began some time in high school and continued through college when I majored in Early Childhood Education. While teaching first grade our paper art projects were always a favorite.

It was after my sons were out of school when I knew it was time to tackle those boxes of photos and get their scrapbooks made. Soon a friend introduced me to card making and there began this journey.

I am the proud mother of amazing and supportive sons, 2 bio sons and one step-son. They have blessed me with four granddaughters and one grandson. Four of them are still in high school and one is off to NYU in the Fall with a nice scholarship for Music Theory and Song Writing.

Paper crafting has led me to many hours of blissful diversion from the doldrums of being a widow for the past 9 years. My little crafting studio gives me the perfect place where I can do what I love and share what I do.

One of my favorite quotes found among paper crafters:

IT STARTED OUT AS A HARMLESS HOBBY...
I HAD NO IDEA IT WOULD COME TO THIS!

Blessings to each of you. XXX
