Blog Newbie!

Alright so this is my very first blog! 
I am excited to begin sharing the projects that I've completed!

First - about me: 
I am married to a wonderful husband! We have three super sweet kitties - Pork Chop, Monkey, and Buddha! They are the cutest things!

I have a busy job as Financial Controller in a manufacturing plant.  I relocated to the Houston area for this job.  Prior to this position, I worked as an Internal Auditor for several large companies.  That job allowed me to travel the globe. 
It was my travel experiences that brought me into the world of scrapbooking and paper crafts!  I wanted to use my creativity to preserve the memories of these trips.
I have now been scrapbooking and cardmaking for several years.  The past year my interest has turned into more of an obsession!  I love to be able to create something to give as a gift and watch people's faces light up!
Recently I have joined the Close to My Heart family of Independent Scrapbooking and Stamping Consultants.  I love the products that this company offers!  They make eveything so easy!  Each month I hold various workshops in my home for all types of projects!  Check this blog often or become a member of the Crafty Mamas in Cypress group for information!
