Help Us Welcome This Month's Guest Craft Designer!

March is here which that means two things:

SPRING is almost here AND we have a new Guest Designer!  Please help us welcome Sara as our March 2015 Guest Designer of the month.



Screenname:  Sara M.

My crafty supply must have: I am a scrapbooking diva and must have 2- patterned papers and enamel dots


Guilty pleasures:  Cupcakes and podcasts


BIO:  Married for 16 years with 2 boys and 2 dogs.  In my life the primary hat I wear is that of caregiver.  My eldest son has high functioning autism.  My youngest also has some pretty rough health issues.  A number of years ago we opened our home to my grandparents, who are both in their 80's, and I am their primary caregiver. 


And my job?  I work in home healthcare and I am a caregiver there as well.  Caregiving is hard sometimes.  Scrapbooking and cardmaking  are my therapy - period.  It is what keeps a smile on my face when I've had one of "those" days.



Sara worked with products from KaiserCraft, Tim Holtz and Simple Stories.  Here are a some of her projects:

Layout: Wonderful You
