Over the years I've come to realize that my greatest desire in life is simply to leave some small contribution.
Something creative and positive to share with others. It is only too obvious that our time here is but a brief cycle in the grand scheme of things.
To me that means not a moment to waste…. no stone left unturned. And while it can be a challenge to follow an unpredictable fickle muse…. if that is where you thrive…. make a concerted effort to seek it out at all costs. You can only be rewarded.
By choosing to pursue an uncertain route you are opening yourself up to the absolute adventure life truly is.
Start from a predetermined point and gradually move outward, step by step into larger and larger ever widening spirals.

I've been a gatherer all my life which is where the idea for my new RELICS & ARTIFACTS craft blank collection began. I've partnered with PRIMA MARKETING INC. to release this uniquely beautiful line. Timeless and classic curated arrangements of matte resin castings ready to be re-imagined in any number of ways, altered art, jewelry, mixed media, just decorate and embellish with your favorite medium. I am also a Contributing Editor to WHERE WOMEN CREATE, WHERE WOMEN COOK and WWCBUSINESS magazines. I've authored several best selling craft books including FANCIFUL PAPER PROJECTS and FANCIFUL PAPER FLOWERS. I have created several popular rubber stamp lines exclusive to STAMPINGTON & COMPANY.
