Welcome. My name is Lisa and I live on a farm in Northeastern PA. I have a wonderful husband of over 30 years and two fabulous sons. One with a wonderful wife and another with a wonderful girlfriend. I have a 6 year old granddaughter and an 4 year old grandson. We have a dog, two cats, and 5 horses. I started into this art as a possible scrapbooker until my good friend Lou Ann (SCS Crooked Stamper) invited me to a Stampin' Up party. Now I'm hooked. We had to turn a room of our home into a craft room for all my stuff. Then I needed a second craft room and did classes. Then I decided to open an in home store using three more rooms of our home. Between Lou Ann (Crafter and IT department) and Mary Ann (Crafter and Jewelry department) and a few other friends, I'm having the time of my life!!!!
Don't be misled by the title. I haven't gotten a new skill. I'm still working on this one. Anyway, my DDIL needed a card for a friend of hers that is having a baby. She's a Hallmark kinda gal, so I really had to do my best. Her friend doesn't know if it's a boy or girl, so that eliminated about 99% of my dsp. Also, my cute dresses and airplan short stamps had to go. So I though "Ah Ha", I'll do a quilt. Well my "sister" Lou Ann aka Crooked Stamper does a beautiful quilt, but hasn't uploaded it yet (hint, hint, Lou Ann) but I don't know how to do the technique. So I've done a simple quilt for those who can't do the real thing. I went with SU Certainly Celery dsp beause you can't get more neutral than that. I simply taped the different squares together and ran them throught my Big Shot. I know NOTHING about quilting, but my great-grandmother made me one when I was little (I still have it) and there are knotted bits of thread in the intersections (not a technical term) of the material. So I did that to mine. I also did know paper piercing and stampin my envelope. So that's it. Have a great weekend!
