Hi, my name is Karen and I am so excited to a part of the Southern Girls Challenge Design Team. I've lived in the beautiful state of Washington my entire life. My hubby, Kurt and I will be celebrating our 30th anniversary on April 3rd. He is an awesome guy and takes all my photo's for my blog. We have two sons, Kyle 26 and Kory 23, who recently returned home after serving 4 years in the US Army. No grand kids yet! We love to travel, tour some of the many wineries in Washington, as well as just hang out together. We are working our way through the alphabet with ABC dating, which has been a lot of fun. I also love to bake, entertain friends and family. One big accomplishment I am very proud of... last August I participated and completed my first Triathlon.
Most of my life I have been crafting, sewing Barbie clothes, drawing, cross stitch, decorative painting, as well as teaching at my church retreats, community center and the local Michael's. I started scrapbooking/card making over 20 years. It all began when I became a D.O.T.S. consultant (now known as Close to My Heart), when the company first started. I was consultant #111 and it was the prefect part time job when my boys were little. I enjoyed sharing the stamps, demostrating my cards and techniques. It was so much fun watching others get just as excited as I did about paper, ink and stamps. As of last year, I am no longer a CTMH consultant, but my passion for paper crafts lives on.
