How did you get started with your craft?

I saw an article in a newspaper about making paper and decided to buy a kit. The first set I made was the night before my daughter was born. I was "nesting" (didn't know it at the time! LOL) and had completely cleaned my house and still had so much energy that I pulled out that kit and made my first batch of paper. I was hooked.

What's your favorite material to work with?
Right now I am having a great time with crayons.

Tell me a random fact about you?
I love office supplies!

Any advice for new Etsy members?
Stay true to yourself.

Lets hear the condensed version of your life...
I have moved on average every three years. Mostly around West Texas while growing up and from coast to coast as an adult (My Hubby is a Marine).
