I am a Mom to three lovely daughters. They have all left the nest so my amazing husband and I are empty nesters. We share our house with two very spoiled cats. I love to spend my free time in my craft room playing with paper. I create collages that I then use for cards, magnets and jewelry. I like to recycle and alter already existing items when I can. My creations can be purchased online through Etsy (site is listed below)
