Hi, I’m Ericka and I live just outside of Texas with my husband, two active girls and two Frisbee loving Border Collies. I grew up and went to college in the Pacific NW but have lived in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia as well as in Guatemala as a Peace Corps Volunteer. I have always loved crafting and making things. I recently started working as a Preschool teacher and love working with the kids and of course our art time together!
I bought my first die cutting machine in 2012 and have fallen in love with card making, stamps and all the wonderful tools needed to make unique cards. I love playing with meduims and colors and love making vivid backgrouds. Some of my other passions include: gardening, using my Silhouette Cameo, reading, baking, and any other DIY projects I can get my hands on. I’m also trying to learn some hand lettering when I get a chance.
I enjoy the artistic expression card making has given me. As a mom, it has been important to find some “me” time that I can create and express myself and as an added bonus hopefully spread some kindness by sending cards to friends and family. It has been so fun being part of such an encouraging and kind crafting community and I look forward to inspiring others.
I’m so excited to participate in these wonderful groups and hope you will be inspired to join in on the challenges.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look. Feel free to leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you.
