Hi There! Welcome to my CTMH site! I'm so happy you're here. I hope to get to know you better soon. Please know that I'm here to help you with all your stamping and scrapbooking needs. A little about me: I adore scrapbooking, and "love" is the reason I do it. I'm a published author, RN, Mom to 4 "big kids", two service dogs named Argo and MacLean plus 4 other fur babies. I'm a proud Air Force wife, and partner to the love of my life, Pete. I am Mommy to, and advocate for, a grown-up child with special needs. I'm Gran' Mama to sweet Lilia. I love hearing birds sing, drinking coffee, public speaking, positive people, campfires, collecting recipes, people-watching, my crockpot, and writing. I'm a happily addicted scrapbooker & card-maker : I absolutely love what I do! Have a great day!
