A little crafty bio:

I learned to cross-stitch in the 5th grade when our class made cross-stitched Christmas ornaments.  I did a few pieces on my own after that.  Then, when I was 16, my very first job was at a cross-stitch store (back when such a thing existed).   I worked there through high school and over college breaks.  I also worked a little as a graphic artist’s assistance for a cross-stitch designer.  In the needlework realm, I prefer hardanger and pulled thread techniques.  But since kids arrived on the scene, I have done less and less needlework.  In 1998 I learned about scrapbooking at a Creative Memories home class.  I’ve been scrapping ever since, and became a consultant on the side in 2005.  More recently I have picked up card making and various other crafty projects found on Pinterest.
