About Me

Hi, I'm Pam! I live in Maryland, just north of Baltimore City. My home consists of me, my husband, and our pet chihuahua, Rocko. I just recently made a career change from Teaching to Finance. After working in special education for 3 years, and various other school environments for 10 years, I decided I needed a change in my life. I'm currently a Teller for a bank, and, if all goes well, I may look into going back to school for Finance. Only time will tell, but I'm excited for these new adventures to come :)

I also occasionally teach paper crafting classes at Michaels on the weekends!

Favorite Crafts

I specialize in card making, paper crafting, some jewelry making, and baking yummy goodies! My craft supplies have overtaken our guest room, and now I consider it my studio/place of zen.

I've been crafting since I was a kid. I only began to do it more seriously within the last year. I have participated in a few craft fairs, and will be participating in a few more this coming Fall and Winter.

Techniques I enjoy using in my card making and paper crafting include stamping, heat embossing, die cutting, water coloring, layering, and making shaker cards.

Other paper crafting hobbies I enjoy making are ATCs, Pocket Letters, and handcrafted gifts for craft fairs.

When I bake, I enjoy making cupcakes, cakes, and cookies. My favorite is anything vanilla or cake batter flavored. I'm not that big of a chocolate fan unless it's dark chocolate.
