I'm a mom, milspouse, crafter, baker, eater, and eternal optimist.  I am a maker.  My day job includes looking at maps and contracts and lots of emails.  But my passion and joy comes from paper and stamps and thread and fabric and all things crafty.  I started scrapbooking in 2009.  This turned into a love of all paper crafts.  And in 2019, I started sewing and machine embroidery. 

Welcome to my little slice of the inter-web to share the things I make and the stories behind them.
