Please Welcome Our New DT Member

Please give a warm welcome our newest member :)
Here is the very talented...

I joined the crafting world when I went to my first Stampin Up workshop. I was hooked, until I discovered all the fun and new supplies for scrapbooking. From there I explored the digital world of images, papers and elements, stumbling into altered art at times. My newest passions include water colors and mixed media canvas.  
I am married with two grown children, one still in college. The other has gifted me with five grandchildren and a daughter-in-law who shares my love of crafting. We live outside of Chicago (go Blackhawks!) and enjoy occasional family vacations.
I belong to crafting groups on Yahoo and Paper Digital Art, and design/have designed for a few stamp companies and challenge blogs. I am passionate about creativity in all its forms. I love to stretch my artistic imagination and yank myself out of my comfort zone (sometimes kicking and screaming). But it's all in fun, and I am always growing and learning in art.
