Allow me to introduce myself....

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.

I absolutely LOVE how this one turned out. Christmas is right around the corner, and guess who isn't even CLOSE to having her Christmas cards done. Yup. This girl. But, this set (which I just got last week!) really got me excited about making Christmas cards, and about Christmas in general! 'Snow Swirled' is a beautiful set by Stampin' Up! and I can't wait to experiment with different designs.

Thank you to all of you who have come to visit my little corner of the world!

Until next time....

DId you ever think you would be an entrepreneur?
