"I grew up in an environment of "creativity". My father and brothers were always fixing or building something and each has their own talent in carpentry, construction and designing or building some of the most unique items and living spaces. Even my son, Tim, is making custom woodworking projects as I write this! My mother, who is a meticulous seamstress, crochet and knit artist and quilter, taught me and my sisters to knit and crochet when we were young girls and it continues to bring us great joy. She also introduced me to quilting years later, and I dabbled in creating art quilts. My sisters continue to create beautiful quilts,embroidery, and painted glass, as well as knit and crochet items. My interest in papercrafts began about 7 years ago when I took a rubber stamp class at my local library. From that moment on, I became completely and totally addicted to cardmaking and rubber stamping. I must say that of all three passions, papercrafting is the one that I love the most. My craftroom is truly my sanctuary! I am very blessed to have such a supportive family, inspiring teachers, and wonderful friends with whom I share my love and creative expression. My blog, My Eclectic Spirit, really speaks to who I am. It has afforded me the opportunity to meet and learn from some of the most talented and inspiring women all over the world. I am also a design team member for Crafts and Me and Little Darlings Rubber Stamps- very blessed indeed!"
