The BEST part of life!
Hello and welcome to my corner of the online card-making community! This is a site where I pretend to be nothing more than a self-taught card designer. Basically, I play with paper and glue. You probably came here because of card making, so let's start there. This is a short story. Handmade cards have been a part of my life since 2010, but I have always been crafty. I have tried my hand at various crafts. Ninety percent of the cards I make are donated, and I only send a few during the holidays. I'm currently on the Whimsy Stamps Design Team. Since meeting Denise and Deb at Whimsy Stamps, I've become a member of the Whimsy Stamps family. My experience with this company and design team is the most rewarding I have ever had, and I consider myself very blessed.
I'm more than just a card maker. I also enjoy playing video games. I'm more of a "the zombies are coming, you have a board and a vial of life," what do you do?, type of gamer. Imagine Resident Evil, Silent Hill, or Until Dawn. I also love some Lego games. I also enjoy watching period dramas. A few favorites include Outlander and Downton Abbey.
My husband, Aaron, has been my best friend for 21 years. He retired from the Army in 2009, and we have learned so much about each other. Eight deployments and seven out of ten years apart seemed rough; I was wrong. The transition back to civilian life after serving the Army for 20 years was the rough part, but we made it. I have to say it made us better people and made our marriage stronger. I was the secretary/website manager for Warriors On the Water, a non-profit organization. The pandemic ended our annual bass fishing tournament for service members. I love Walt Disney World!
I get excited just talking about Disney, and I cry while watching the firework shows on YouTube! If you're not careful, I'll put you in my car and take you with me because everyone should experience it.
I've probably shared too much. I'm trying to open up a little bit more and let people get to know me a bit better. It's difficult for me, I'm very guarded.
