Harrison, James, Cole, Owen, and Nelly
I have been working in the craft industry for a very long time. Through that time I have watched many craft trends come and go. However, handmade cards are timeless. No matter what tools, supplies or style trends are available, making cards just keeps evolving.
I have taught craft classes for many years through three different companies. Most recently I taught handmade cards classes at Heartland Paper Company for the past nine years.
Making cards is my creative outlet. I enjoy the relaxation that comes through sitting down to create. An added benefit to making cards is being able to give someone something that was made with love. I originally started making cards because the pre-made cards in the store were getting so expensive. After making and giving handmade cards I realized that I was able to better express my love or thoughts through something that I made myself.
I am the proud Grandma of five darling little boys and one darling little girl. When I’m not creating new cards I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren and watching them learn and grow. I look forward to the day that I can sit down with them and teach them to make cards.
Through teaching classes I have met so many wonderful people and have made such great friends. I look forward to meeting you at my next card class and sharing my love for papers and paste with you.
