Happy Sunday everyone! Today I want you to meet Debbie, she sure is a creative lady and we are thrilled to have her with us.
Hi everyone! I'm so excited to be part of a new Design Team! I am an empty nester, married to my best friend who really keeps me entertained. I have a 25 year old daughter who lives in Indiana. I am retired at 48 years old and living with my hubby and our two furbabies in Florida. Its different not working when you were a workaholic! I owned my own granite and marble fabrication and installation shop. I stayed busy meeting clients in retail setting of our showroom and builders out on the site. Needless to say it was always a shocker to them if they never worked with me before and then met me in person. Of course this wasn't the normal thing for a woman to be doing and I was all of 4"10" and I think they thought I would be a push over but they quickly learned I was very tough, held my own and wasn't intimidated by them.
My business became very successful. We lived in Indiana all our lives My husband retired 4 years ago from Chrysler and decided he was done with the cold weather and we were moving to Florida. So I retired with much hesitation. I loved working, the stress was my driving force and I wasn't sure I was ready to walk away. But he was more important and I wanted him to be happy. So we have been here 3 years now. I haven't been scrapping more than 2 years because I never had time. So I have been collecting all the necessary cricuts and supplies! I absolutely love it, i know I will get better with time. I absolutely have a new addiction and thats blogging, scrapping and facebooking new friends. I didn't know anything about a blog until a year ago when I started mine. Now my blog is designed by me and I did a few friends blogs too. I love to dabble in alot of things.
Scrapping keeps me busy so I can forget for a short time how much I miss my beautiful daughter and all my family. I have been published in GingerScrapsStreet Magazine (Its an online magazine) I own my original E, Cricut Imagine and I won the Cricut E2. But I have to say I use all of them but my love is still with my original E. I just feel its still the better made out of all of them and don't think thats going to change for me. But developing a love for my imagine. This time around I got a good one. I didn't think I would print full page papers but found myself doing that for a project I just didn't have the paper I wanted for it. I am a paper hoarder. I know it needs to be used but it sends a panic to my brain that the mission should be aborted to avoid lack of paper!!! My pet peeve is tardiness. I am always ready and always arriving at least 15 minutes early but I like to be punctual. My favorite drink is sweet tea but normally I drink Diet Mountain Dew one after another when I'm crafting. My favorite color is pink and the pattern paisleys. I probably said TOO much. I'm looking forward to this journey with all of you!
