My journey has been a long one. I started crafting as a child and followed all the "In" crafts through the years. I love to crochet and started to scrapbook when my grandson came along. I am not a very good scrapbooker. Then I stumbled onto a cardmaking blog one morning before work and I've been doing that ever since! I love working with paper and color and making something to give. My passion is making flowers! When my MoJo leaves, I make flowers! There is just something about this art that soothes my soul! Most of my cards are sent to nursing home patients who might need a card to give to someone who has shown them a kindness. It pleases me to think I give them a little joy.
Several years ago I lost my job to down-sizing and have now reached retirement age. I'm now officially retired and after working all those years, find I am quite content to be at home. I have my craft to keep my hands and mind busy. Currently, I'm on the alumni design team for Heartfelt Creations after being on their design team for about two years. I love working with their product! Their company has been a perfect fit for me and I continue to use their stamps and dies.
Years ago a dear friend of mine was trying to work and deal with husband, son and aging parents and she was talking so fast and was just in a panic about something and I said to her. Ok.....Breathe. Now when I say that on my blog, I mean to take a moment, step back from your lives and problems and ground yourself. Do something that makes you happy!
So come follow me as my Journey continues. Each day I try and find joy in whatever I am doing and try and share that joy with you.
