Where did you live? I live in the SW Suburbs of Chicago

Tell us a little bit about your family. I'm married to my high school sweetheart, Jim - we'll be celebrating our 17th Anniversary in October. We have two wonderful boys - Jim 14 and Joe 13 and a 5 year old yellow Lab named Lou.

How long you have been stamping? I've been stamping since 2002

Where do you do your stamping? When I first started out stamping I stamped in the kitchen and all my supplies fit in a small iris cart (Remember those days - I'm sure most of you started out that way too!). A few years ago my husband remodeled our mud room, and now I have a nice stamp studio with an L-shaped desk and cabinet space.

What is your favorite must have stamping tool?My must have tools change on a daily basis - but ones I use daily are my Scor-It board, Paper Trimmer and Sponge Daubers.

How long have you been blogging? I've been blogging for 1-1/2 years

What is your favorite Paper Company? Currently my favorite Paper Company is The Paper Loft - I love the variety of papers they have, the really fit into my style of paper crafting.

What products are you currently addicted to ? My addiction would have to be techniques and the one technique I seem to use over and over is the Marker Water Coloring Technique from The Technique Junkies Newsletter (

What is your favorite paper crafting season ? My favorite crafting season is Christmas, I love to create gifts for others, and Christmas is the perfect time to give papercrafted items.
