Hello!  My name is Amber and I am a married mother of 3 wonderful kids!  My son is 7, and then my girls are 4 and 3.  I absolutely love to scrapbook but I have extended it into making cards and canvas art.  Really anything that there is to do with crafts, you can bet I have at least searched it once, and tried most of it too!!!  I also love to take pictures.  My only problem is that most of the supplies can be quite costly, so here lately, I have found that unless it is for a birthday or something, I really don't get to do much of it these days.  So I keep praying for these occasions to continue rolling around, that way I have my excues to be crafty!!!

These are just a few of the items that I have made.  I almost forgot, I also love to write poems!  So usually when I make a card, I will write a personal poem to go along with it.

What is a soldier

You might ask

Well, let me tell you

This family’s story

Our soldier

Defender of freedom, liberty, and justice

This is the story of our Hero

Senior Chief Tom Riggs

He is not just a devoted husband, father

Grand-father, and great-grand-father, he is so much more..................................................................

If you ever have a moment to spare

Pull up a chair

And listen to the tales

From a True

Red, white, and blue

American Soldier

My grandpa

Tom Riggs

Happy Father’s Day Papa

I love you and I just wanted to say thank you for the freedom that you helped to defend and protect.

Hi my name is Michelle, I have 8 kids, first 7 are from 17 to 26 and then there is the 4 year old. And no he wasn't a late in life child he was a grandchild we adopted, He has lived with us since the day he was born. I've never been into scrapbooking but I've done just about everything elce. I'm best with crocheting and sewing, have my own embrodery machine. Haven't had a lot of time to play with it though. I am no good at using patterns, I get a idea in my head and make it. Have done socks, hair ties, long heavy sweaters (that started as a blanket lol) purses. I even make my first granddaughters dress she wore home from the hospital. All of this was from crocheting, I've tried knitting but its just to slow for me, couldn't get the hang of it. I've sewed dresses, wedding gown for my daughter in law, hoodies, summer clothes and lots of other things. And I love to just make Christmas. One year I decided we wasn't buying christmas so the kids and I made christmas, we tye-dyed and beaded shirts and made long johns out of socks that had a cute saying. I like to go online and find a project and just have a ball with it. So I hope to have some fun here and maybe get some ideas I hadn't thought of, right now I'm working on a pair of overalls for a newborn boy out of bedspread thread, I like using that much better than yarn.

Hi my name is Pam. I actually just joined StampinUp! I have never done stamping and have been wanting to do scrapbooking for a long time, so just decided to start my own business. I get to have fun, be creative, meet new people, get a discount and earn an income!  I could go on and on but you all get what I mean. anyway, even though I have only been doing this a short time and so new to it, I am really getting into it!! I look forward to seeing everyone's creative work and sharing my own. Plus to get to know everyone as well!

Hi my name is Kristen. I'm a 26 y/o temporarily SAHM to a beautiful baby girl who just turned 1! I am a social worker but since I am not working at the moment I need to figure out ways to entertain myself..lol. I'm not a naturally crafty person but I wish I was...so I'm pretty much new to all crafts in general and was hoping to get tips and pointers from all your "pros" out there!!

Anything else you wanna know..just pm me! Can't wait to learn about all the fun things everyone is doing!!!!
