So I did it. I finally started a blog! I've actually started one before, with not much success. This one will be different (haha...). No but really, I hope that I'll be able to keep up with this one :)
I picked up the wonderful art of card making about two years ago, but got more serious about it within the past year. I am a follower of all things on splitcoaststampers and continue to be amazed and inspired by all the lovely ladies on there. I have so many techniques to learn and I am enjoying every minute of it! This blogs purpose is to share my designs, and my life, with others who happen to come across it. I hope that it will be an encouragement to those who feel they are not 'crafty'. I truly believe that everyone has creative abilities, whether it's used in paper crafts, photography, cooking, stick figure drawings, whatever! So, if you're one of those people that thinks "oh, I could never do that..." but deep down inside, you really want to, then I say "Do it!" (been there!)
As far as the personal life goes, I am married to Tim, the love of my life! We reside in Dallas, TX with our fairly new cat, Garbanzo (or callie, or garby's, or party taco.....really, she has a variety of names). I currently work for a non-profit organization as an office assistant. I do anything and everything from organizing and sending out mailers to assisting with the finances. I'm kinda the go-to-gal of the office. I have my Bachelor's in Christian Studies with a focus on Educational Ministry from Dallas Baptist University, and one day I hope to go back to get my masters in Counseling. Tim runs his own candy machine business and is also a courier part-time. We attend an awesome church and young adults group at Grace Community Church. We just love it there, and the people are amazing. Um...what else do we do? Tim and I enjoy walks at the Joe Pool Lake Dam, keeping up with our fav shows (the office, 24, and LOST!), listening to music, theological discussions, and making each other laugh on a daily basis. He's my favorite :)
Well, I'm sure there's plenty more to say, but I will leave you with this card that I created over the weekend.
Thank you to all of you who have come to visit my little corner of the world!
Until next time....
