My first post and a little about me ...

Oh boy ... my first post.  I hope I get the hang of this before too long.  Please bear with me.

A little background about myself ... I was born on Mother's Day in 1960.  For most of my life, I have claimed Frankfort, Kentucky as home.  I married my husband, David, in 1983.  Our family has grown over the last few years.  We were adopted by tuxedo cats Laverne and her sister Shirley in 2007.  Then in 2010, we were adopted again.  This time by Lenny (an orange tabby) and his sister Squiggy (a Tortoiseshell).  In the spring of 2011, we brought a family member's cat to our home.  His name is Bob and he is a gray and white tabby.  All my children have paws.

I worked in state government from 1979 until retiring in August 2006.  I have been crafting in one media or another for most of my life. I have been stamping since sometime in the early 90's. My main interest at this time is paper crafting.

I am now a designer for Crafter's Companion and previously for Sunday International.  I hope you will enjoy the projects that I will share here with you beginning in January 2012.

I suppose I am no longer a virgin blogger now.  I am so glad that's over with.  (She said with a great sigh of relief.)  I will now add blogging to my list of accomplishments.

Until next time, I am ever searching for inspiration.
