About Me

Carlisle, Pennsylvania
I am a stay at home mom..now that is! February 19th, 2007 I was involved in a car accident while on vacation in Florida. I awoke in ICU to find out that my only two children Annemarie age 3 and Michael age 5 did not make it. Scrapbooking became such a big part of my life. It helped fill a void that I desperately needed to fill. Our therapist suggested that I take up scrapbooking as a way to memorialize my children, little did she know! So I took that and ran with it.I became obsessed with scrapping and took over the second largest room in my house. Because of my injuries I couldn't go out and get a job, I just scrapped!I printed out 2,000 photos and my journey began. I have made albums for family members and layouts to decorate my craft room. We thought we were done having kids but who expected this tragedy??? I just gave birth in June 2009 to two beautiful baby girls Mia Anne and Gianna Marie named after their brother and sister.I swore that I would keep up with their albums so I won't become overwhelmed so we will see how that works out! My profile picture is the last family picture that was taken of all of us.

Santa Claus is coming to town!

Santa Claus is coming to the Sisterhood of Crafters!  Ho ho ho...let's see how crafty you can go!! The new challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters is to create a project with Santa Claus on it.

I took some paper from Graphic 45's T'was the Night Before Christmas (I think that is what it was called).  Then I added several layers of cardstock to it. Since they looked like postcards I thought it would be fun to use it as letters to Santa. I had each girl address it to Santa. Then they will write their Christmas wishes on the back. I wanted to add ribbon to it before the picture was taken but my girls freaked out. My intentions will be to hang them on the tree for Santa to see.   Something I thought would be cute to save for years to come.

So get your Santa on and come craft with us at the Sisterhood of Crafters. Have a great day and HAPPY CRAFTING!
