This is what I see each day as I look across my desk. I have only been in this office for 2 weeks, but already I am loving it! I have have a window that faces east and provides a glorious view of the southern part of the Sandia Mountains. But my favorite view is of all the crafty things! Right now on my desk are the card I made for my first challenge, a candy jar I decorated, and the desk caddy I made. And on the wall in the background is a framed, 2-page L.O. of my DD's 10th birthday aboard Royal Caribbean's Enchantment of the Seas last October. And, you can't quite see them, but I have a few idea books on the small table between the two chairs. I figure if people are going to be sitting there, how nice it would be for them to check out an idea book!
I am a wife, mother of an 12 y.o. daughter, and appreciator of many things crafty. I love most paper crafts, especially scrapbooking and cardmaking. I love keeping up with new trends while still leaning on the classics. In addition to those fun adventures, I am an independent consultant with Close to my Heart. I recently returned to my alma mater, Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa, where I now work as the news director.
