I found my way into card-making in the late spring of 2017 after stumbling across Kristina Werner, Jennifer McGuire, and Amy Rysavy on YouTube. I’ve never been crafty, but I just love playing with paper and colors and I became addicted to the wonderful feeling of being able to create something, start to finish, and being able to share it with someone to add a little bit of sunshine to their day.
After almost a year of wondering where all the crafty folks are hanging out, I joined Instagram and found the answer. Since February, I’ve made quite a few crafty connections there and have had the opportunity to meet a number of new crafty friends in person. It’s an amazing community and I’m so grateful to be a part of it! You can find me on Instagram where I’m working on a 365-cards-in-365-days self-challenge.
I live in the Bay Area, just across the bridge from San Francisco. Though I was born in California, I spent most of my childhood in the Midwest, just north of Chicago. Many years ago I came back to California for college, a few miles from where I live now, and stayed here after graduating. The beauty, diversity, and mild weather are just a few of the things that keep me here.
Thanks for joining me in my new hobby!
