I have enjoyed crafting since childhood. Over the years I have dabbled with knitting, needlework and various crafting kits. My first introduction to stamping was around 1990. Life got busy with work and family, and crafting was put on hold for a while. A friend re-introduced me to Close to my Heart about 5 years back. Over the last few years I have turned a small corner in my living room into my craft corner. I now mostly enjoy paper crafting and mixed media - altered art.
