I am a 40+ wife, mother, and career woman. I have two children. After several years of working too much I realized life is short and wanted to return to having creativity be a part of my life. So about 2 years ago I decided to purposely carve out time to be creative. I also wanted to connect with others. I worked on improving my hand writing and incorporated hand lettering into my practice. Then I began letter writing and have about a dozen pen pals world wide. As I began to add creative elements into my letters I stumbled upon card making/paper crafts. I have been working on my card making skills for about 6 months and really enjoy it. Instead of making greeting cards, I use my A2 cards as a package for my pen pal letters. I post photos of my cards on Pinterest.

I enjoy paper crafts, specifically making cards to send to pen pals. I make a card and then enclose an envelope inside to tuck in a letter to a friend. I use die cuts, stamps, stickers, ribbon, color pencils, glitter, sealing wax, and other embellishments. My tools include color pencils, Cuttlebug, Stamping Platform, and envelope score board. I like to use anything postage or mail themed for my cards and to decorate my letters. I also like butterflies, owls, anything snail mail, things decorated with books, teacups/teapots, and flowers.
Warm climates. I have traveled to Jamaica, Mexico, Hawaii, Belize, Cuba, and looking forward to St. Lucia
