Who Inspires Me?

My biggest and best inspiration is my darling husband. He saw the artist in me before I knew it. He cheers and encourages me every step of the way. He shops with me in all kinds of craft and scrapbook stores. When I ask, he gives me suggestions and honest opinions. And when I have supplies all over the place he doesn't complain. So this special dedication is to Ron, my constant inspiration!

I would like to thank my mom, Jewel. She is partly responsible for my crafty side. I remember years ago, she got into crafting. She had a hot glue gun and I didn't even know what that was. She was gluing and a gluing! She created all sorts of beautiful things and it was fun helping her. So thanks mom for exposing me to the world of crafts!

Also, thanks to a special lady Cindy, most of my family and friends and the Peas at Two Peas. All of these people have been amazing at boosting my confidence. Thanks, y'all!

Design and technique thanks goes to Marion Smith of www.apieceofcraft.com. I watch her live shows twice a week. She is so gifted at paper crafting and I learn so much from her. Plus I get to chat with other crafters while I am watching her. So fun! Many of those folks have been so helpful, too.  Thanks Marion!
