Heart June Swapper of the Month - Vickie Y

Congratulations to our June Swapper of the Month! Here is a little information about Vickie.

How I got started – I love sharing and learning, especially when it comes to papercrafting! A friend told me about splitcoaststampers, a place where I could come for ideas and inspiration. So I lurked for awhile, then became a member of this fabulous community!

How long have you been doing this –I started browsing the splitcoast gallery and roaming the forum in 2004. I decided to jump in and participate in a swap, so I signed up to participate in the first round of DSS; then signed up for all kinds of swaps…recipe, altered items, cards, cards, and more cards. I LOVE every hostess and chatting with others who are swapping. I consider splitcoast my “second” family!

Any other hobbies – not really; paper crafting is what I enjoy; but, if shopping for the things that go with this hobby can be considered a hobby, then shopping and attending craft events is my other hobby! J

I have a fabulous, supportive husband! He remodeled one of our spare bedroom’s into a gorgeous craftroom for me; he even enables me to get more things that go with this hobby! Two of my daughters are crafty; when I visit my daughter in Dallas, we spend several days hopping from one craft store to another. We attended a Creative Memories retreat together last summer and had soooo much fun! I also have a group of friends I get together with who also enjoy paper crafting; we go on shopping trips for a weekend, or even a week or more; among the places we’ve enjoyed was going to CHA in Chicago twice and CHA in Florida for a week of fun! And, I have “met” so many wonderful, creative stampers right here on SCS!

Favorite tools of the trade…oh my gosh! I LOVE it all! I love anything to do with creating handmade flowers and using beads to create stick pins; love using embossing folders and dies, so my Big Shot is a favorite for sure!

Something you may not know about me - I am retiring from my job! June 29 is my last working day and then I plan to play, play, and play some more in my craftroom and I will continue swapping which will become even more fun!

Favorite swap experience…I love finding swaps that challenge me to reach beyond my comfort zone. Every swap I have participated in has been a good experience. Each swap and hostess is unique and I think I can say that everyone within a swap can become good friends as we chat and encourage each other.

Anything else to share – I truly LOVE participating in swaps and it is an honor to be selected for doing something that I get great enjoyment from! Thank you from my heart. Hugs, Vickie Y
