When I began this journey almost 15 years ago, little did I know how much this online community of paper crafters would mean to me.  You hear about it, sure, but I have experienced it first hand with so many who have followed, reached out, commented, or shared this little piece of my world.  I am truly grateful and I am looking forward to continuing to be part of your world.

If you will, I'd love for you to comment below and say hello!  And, be sure you have signed up HERE so I can share with you through your inbox each week to keep you informed on the latest.

May God bless you and your families. ---Lisa

    It changes every day!  Right now I am in love with the Friends are like Seashells and Forever Fern, but when the new catalog comes out it may be something else.
