About Me

Creativity is one of my little pieces of joy. For me, there is something liberating about experimenting with different materials, different styles to see what new and special things I can come up with. I enjoy papercrafting, needlework, making simple home decor pieces. I love that the crafting industry has become so available and inspiring and this certainly feeds into my creativity.

Scrapbooking and card making came into my life 6 years ago when my son was born. I have had some wonderful opportunities to earn a living papercrafting since. I am also a Copic Certified Designer and strongly encourage anyone who enjoys coloring with Copic markers to attend.

The goal of my blog is to allow us to share and inspire each other with our art. I will also be using the blog to provide an update of sales events and designs for my greeting card business, Arty Carty Handmade Cards.

I am blessed to be married for 14 years to a man who is wonderfully tolerant of me and my paper and ink passion. We have two great kids – a son who is 6; and a daughter who is 2.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I’m truly excited to get to know you.
