About Me

EDUCATOR, PAPER CRAFTER, DOG LOVER

Thanks for visiting my blog!  I am a retired physician and an "artist wanna-be" who took up card making, paper crafting and dabbling in other artistic media a few years ago.  I love making beautiful and unique cards, because they make me happy, and my hope is that whoever receives them will smile when they open the card.  

I'm very excited to have just completed the Altenew Education Certification Program!  I'm looking forward to hosting workshops in person and online very soon!  I hope you will enjoy seeing my latest projects.
