What began as therapy to help my breathing issues, quickly turned in to a lifelong passion! I started to play with paper almost 17 years ago, but it became a serious hobby after finding this site in 2009. I am married to my best friend, who also is my biggest fan! We have 3 grown boys, and 9 grandchildren! Besides scrapping, I also love my flower beds and garden, which since retiring almost 1 year ago have become a huge part of what I do. I also paint occasionally, that is when I have the time.
