The BEST part of life!

My HAPPY Place!
Hi, and welcome to my little corner of the online card-making community!
Where I pretend to be nothing more than a self-proclaimed card designer. In other words, I play with paper and glue!
I'm married to a fantastic guy, Aaron, for 21 years. Since he retired from the Army in 2009, we have learned a lot about each other! I thought eight deployments and seven out of ten years apart was rough; I was wrong. Transitioning to civilian life after serving the Army for twenty years is the hardest thing, but we made it. I have to say it made us better people and made our marriage stronger.
I'm sure you're here because of card making, so I'll start there. It's a short story.
I've been making handmade cards since 2010, but I've been crafting my whole life. I've dabbled in a little bit of everything. Well, it feels that way. I donate 90% of the cards I make and only send out a few during the holidays.
I've been blessed to meet Denise and Deb, the owners of Whimsy Stamps, and have become part of the Whimsy Stamps family. This is the best company and design team experience I've ever had, and I consider myself very blessed.
There's more to me than just card-making. I also love playing video games. I'm more of a "the zombies are coming, you have a board and one vial of life," what are you going to do, type of gamer. Think Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Until Dawn. I do love some Lego games, too. I also love binge-watching period dramas. Think Downton Abby and Outlander.
I was the secretary/website manager for a non-profit organization, Warriors On the Water. We organized an annual Bass Fishing Tournament for our Service Members, but the pandemic ended it.
And I LOVE Walt Disney World!
I'm like a kid. I get excited just talking about Disney, and I cry watching the firework shows on YouTube! AND if you're not careful I'll pack you in the car and take you with me because everyone should experience it at least once.
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 not so easy for me, I'm very guarded.
THINGS YOU MAY WANT TO KNOW:
My husband is my BFF
I have mad respect for my parents and tell them everything
I love to laugh
I love Walt Disney World, but I don't want my home filled with all the merchandise.
I LOVE FALL AND WINTER
Halloween and Christmas are my favorite holidays
I'm an introvert, most days, you will find me at home alone, and I LIKE it that way, MOM!
