Hi! I'm Patty and I love creating cards, tags, mini books and layouts. I started scrapbooking a little later in life in 2003. Scrapbooking turned into card making in 2008 and card making led me to mini books in 2010. A friend I met in Wisconsin encouraged me to start blogging to share my creations in 2009. I published my first post April 30, 2009. I've done pretty well to try and post at least every week and sometimes more often than that. I've had a few breaks in 2013 and 2014 due to personal issues and moving twice within a year from one state to another. Now that I'm more settled I'm hoping I can get back into the crafting and blogging routine again.
While living in Wisconsin I had the opportunity to design and teach for three scrapbook stores. I taught card and mini book classes and loved it! Two of the scrapbook stores Paper Studio and The Baker's Wife that I designed for have now closed. The third one, Stamp This... Scrap That is still open.
I grew up in Minnesota. I lived in The Northwoods of Wisconsin for 5 years in a cute little tourist town called Minocqua. While it was a beautiful place to live, I just never felt at "home" there. My husband passed away in 2013 and moved back to Minnesota and I love it!
I was on the Design Team for Unscripted Sketches in 2013 and really enjoyed it! I love working with sketches and participating in challenges. My hope is to be on another Design Team again soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
