I make beautiful and unique handmade greeting cards for you to send to your loved ones!

Well, hi!

You know, I've been creating for as long as I can remember. As a kid I loved coloring and drawing...not just any coloring though. I remember shading and blending Barbie's makeup in my coloring book! So I totally get the whole coloring for adults thing.

I started getting into rubber stamps back in the early 90s, before I had kids. I used to be an Independent Consultant with Stampin' Up!, a direct-sales rubber stamp company. I spent hours making displays and coming up with new card ideas to share at home parties. And while I enjoyed it, once the kids started coming it was a little difficult to continue. So I stopped it as a business, but kept creating.

As a homeschool mom with five kids, I found myself having less and less time to create. And what time I did have, I usually spent "resting" in front of the TV. It wasn't that I didn't want to create, I just didn't have much energy.

But in the last couple of years, as I've taken steps to improve my health and as nearly all my kids have reached adulthood, I've been able to create more time to create! I still homeschool (just one now) but I make sure to feed my soul with artful endeavors. I find that this keeps me more grounded, productive, and happy!

Rubber stamping and creating unique greeting cards is just one of the ways that I choose to be creative. I thoroughly enjoy coming up with new card designs, learning about new techniques from other stampers and paper crafters and artists, and getting my inky fingers busy with the actual making of fun and unique cards to stock my Etsy shop. But I also enjoy building in The Sims 4, making 3D prints, working on my model railroad, cooking, polymer clay miniatures, etc.

Someone recently told me that I'm "multi-passionate" and I think that's an apt description. I'm interested in so many things and I love having a variety of projects going. I don't like being tied down to just one thing. So it's no wonder that my greeting cards are like me....not just one style, not just one theme.....lots of variety.

And now, if you'll excuse me, it's time for this Southern mama to be off creating more cards, among other things!
