Hi! My name is Marcia. I am in Spokane WA.

I used to make cards 10 years ago and then stopped all creative pursuits when I started a new job. That job turned into a career and the stress started getting to me and excema was driving me nuts. I decided the best way to stop scratching and ease my mind was to keep my hands busy . So I went into my craft supplies and started making cards again. It turns out crafting is a very good way to meditate and relax and let my worries go for a while. The quiet calmness I feel while crafting helps me find solutions to things I can fix and let the things go I can not control.

I dabble in things:
  • I've made my own paper from scraps
  • I've just started water coloring, I had water color pencils for some reason and existing supplies are cheaper than buying a bunch of markers to color stamped images
  • I'm thinking of learning to draw
  • I've made some small books
