Profession: Freelance Crafter
Craft(s) of Choice: Rubber Stamping, papercrafting,collage, polymer clay, writing, cake decorating
Growing up in a large family, we didn’t always get what we wanted so we learned to get creative. We would make it, paint it, decorate it, fix it, or cover it. I always say “necessity spurs creativity” That skill has helped me find solutions to a myriad of challenges.
I’ve done many crafts but none has hit me like rubber stamping. It is truly addicting!
In this age of electronics and impresonal emailing and texting, I find it deeply rewarding to make something with my hands then put it in the hands of the one for whom I made it.
Whenever I am creating, I am most alive, and fulfilled.
