Please welcome our GDT for the month of July, is:
I live in the state of Georgia in the good ole' south where they call us all Georgia Peaches! LOL I am the wife to a wonderful man, Kevin, who is from Australia. He is very tolerant of my crafting!! I am a mother of three, Taylor (20), Michael (15) and Bailey (12, almost 13!). We have two dogs, T-Bone and Brisket and two cats Highlight and White-Out. Do you see our theme? LOL The dogs are named after cuts of beef LOL and the cats are office supplies LOL!!! I know.. we are very goofy!! I have been crafting since the dawn of ages .. Okay.. maybe that is a little bit of an exaggeration, but I first found a small scrapbooking store right after I had Taylor.. so that is 20 years ago!!! During a bad marriage my crafting fell off. When Kevin and I got together I pulled all of the crafting supplies out of the garage to see if I could have a go at it again. Wow!! I missed it so much. But then I found blogs!! And cards!!! And challenges!!! LOL A whole new world opened up for me!! I couldn't believe it all existed and I didn't know anything about it. I have met so many wonderful people in the crafting community and I am always looking forward to meeting new crafters!!
