Hi Ya'll! I'm a mom/wife/teacher/artist/creator from a small town outside of Ft. Worth, Texas! I love to wear many hats!! I have been creating since I was a small girl with my mom & grandmother. Luckily my daughter Lexi has the same passion for creating! In real life~ I teach 1st grade! I love seeing the spark in a 6 year olds eyes when they realize they can read for the 1st time! It is very similiar to the spark I see in other ladies eyes when they realize they really are creative and enjoy the process of bringing something artistic to life! When I'm not being a mom, wife, daughter, teacher or artist you will find me enjoying my small towns Friday night Football Games and traveling to new and exciting Art Events!
I would call my style of crafting as Shabby Chic! I love pinks, creames & anything Covered in Glitter! I love to create mixed media art, scrapbook & stamping projects & jewelry! I love Vintage~~ I enjoy the hunt of finding that something perfect as well as remaking it!! Anything that comes within my reach is subject to being altered!!! Creating makes me so happy~~~ I have to do something creative every day!
I love inspiring others with new techniques and ideas! It is so much fun to see someone get excited when they create something new and finish a project! I love to host Art Events and see women from all walks of life join together to create, giggle and just have a great time!
