Hi! I’m Carissa! I’m a late twenty-something, wife of 8 years, mother of 3. This year is full of changes as Adrianna, our spirit filled 3 year old goes to preschool this fall, and my 2 boys, Zander(7) and Kaedan(6) go to both 1st and 2nd grade, too! Think I might have too much free time on my hands? Think again, I’m due August 6th with our 2nd daughter, our 4th child.
I work part time for All Fired Up! which is a paint your own pottery shop. It’s my best friend’s business that God has called her to own and operate. I love being a part of her mission field!
Stampin’ Up! is a wonderful company that gets my heart rate going every time I open the catalog. 🙂 I am a “demonstrator”–but more so as a hobbyist. If you don’t have a demonstrator to order from, I would be more than delighted! I have aspirations to help support my family through stampin’ up, but admittedly, it’s one step at a time and for now–it’s just a great hobby to spend some of my free time on. (although sometimes “free” time is more a dream than reality!! LOL)
I hope to take this blog to another level beyond just crafts but also sharing my heart and life.
I am a card-maker foremost, but absolutely LOVE to scrapbook as well, I just find it harder since it’s a bit more time consuming. I’ll leave you with a verse, which really does exemplify why cardmaking and scrapbooking is a wonderful hobby–it’s not just the lovely card, it’s the encouragement and love you get to share inside. Scrapbooking is a great way to remember, to cherish moments in life… what a great encouragement this verse is to me!
Philippians 4:8 (New International Version)
8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
