Bio: Hi, I'm Stacy (StacyLee at ACOT). I live in SW Florida with my husband, our son who is a Freshman in college, and our two furbabies, Malcolm and Lola. I work full-time as a Billing Manager for a busy Orthopedic Surgery group. I grew up on a farm in central Missouri and have always enjoyed all types of crafting. I discovered scrapbooking 18 years ago after the birth of my son. I'm so grateful to have a hobby that not only gives me enjoyment, but also has allowed me to meet so many wonderful people and good friends along with it. I am currently on the design team at Sketch N Scrap and find that I can always can jump start my creativity with a good sketch. I'm excited to be your November Guest Designer here at A Cherry On Top!

Most readers don’t know this about me: I did not get married until I was 40
BIO: I am married to a wonderful man for the past 12 years. We are crazy for Boxers and have 3. Miss Sophie Lauren is 51/2 Coco Chanel is 3 1/2 and Ginger Rogers is 3 months! Our house is crazy for sure. I love to travel. It is something I see myself doing for years to come. I have gone on 3 European cruises, 2 Caribbean cruises and traveled the US and Canada. By far Disney World is my favorite place to go in the states followed by Universal studios.
I have been crafting all my life. I can remember as a child sitting for hours crafting. I made my first card when I was around 4-5 years old for my daddy on Fathers day. My mom saved it and I found it a few years ago in some old photos. I framed it and it is hanging in my craft room. Scrapbooking is what I do mostly but I also make cards, I do a good deal of work using my Cricut and vinyl on whatever I can find to stick it to (Teehee!) and do I a lot of mixed media projects.
I mostly scrapbook my travels and my boxers. I love making yard art from found objects and concrete stepping stones. I am an avid gardener and have landscaped my entire front yard to be a beautiful woodland garden including adding two cabins, pathways made from my stepping stones and flat rock I have found on our property. .I love going to garage sales and picking up antiques and primitive items or whatever deals I can find.
