I dream about making projects. Most of my ideas come in dreams. I started card making 2 years ago and I have never been fond of florals. UNTIL THIS SET! It is available only till January 2nd 2019. Visit my store to get your set!

Where am I?

Hey ya’ll! I am in Scottsdale Arizona attending a continuing education class. I am a dental hygienist by day and a crafter by any other time I have. I would like to share some pictures with you. I have gotten some beautiful pics of this state and some color combos to use in my future projects! Maybe you will get some color inspiration too!
