Hello my name is Sheila!

I am a wife, a crafter, a Stampin’ Up Independent Demonstrator, and domestic servant to three beautiful cats.

There were many years that life kinda got in the way of me having the time to enjoy crafting, but now I have found that making time for being creative also makes me very productive and peaceful in all areas of my life. With this realization I truly  believe that art (of any genre) really is a form of therapy for the mind, body and soul.

Two years ago I discovered Stampin’ Up through a friend, who used to be a demonstrator. This friend had given me a beautiful hand made Christmas card, the quality of the paper and the clarity of the stamps just blew me away. I looked Stampin’ Up online and immediately wished that I would win the lottery, because I wanted to buy everything that I saw in their shop. Instead I decided to take a breath and do this logically. So I found a demonstrator locally and she was having a class that following Sunday afternoon – I signed up. I only went to one other class that she had, and made the decision right then to sign up and become a demonstrator. Last year I began teaching classes and now have a small but loyal following and we always have a good time making cards together.

I also like to crochet, knit, make beaded jewelry and always love learning a new craft. Like most creative people I have too many ideas in my head and not enough time to create them all. There are times that I will have several different projects I am working on all at once.

With this blog I would like to share my ideas, creations and life stories in order to inspire others.

I appreciate your stopping by and taking a look at my place, I hope that you will come back to visit soon.
