Hello, Hello!

I recently saw that Art by Miran is hosting a DT Call! 

Although I have only recently discovered these images, they are fantastic and a dream to color! My first ever project with one of these images is one I purchased to play along in their monthly progressive challenge.

So here's a bit about myself:

My name is Samantha and I have been crafting ever since I was a little girl, however, the stamping, coloring, and card-making started about 5 years ago. 

My mom had a Cricut Expression and I just thought it was the coolest thing since sliced bread - so "Santa" got me one for Christmas that year and I was HOOKED! I started exploring with all kinds of electronic cuts, embossing (in all way shapes and forms), coloring, stamping (both rubber and digital) and I just LOVE every minute of it. Some people exercise, get massages, pedicures and what not to I CRAFT! It's my escape and I spend as much time in my wonderful hobby room (that my hubby put together for me) that I can.

I have a little girl who is almost a year old and she hangs out in the hobby room with me from time to time. I can't wait until she get's old enough to "play" along with me. :) She will be a future crafter too!

I enjoy trying all kinds of new products, papers, mediums, styles, and techniques and I believe that this type of hobby is ever evolving and changing - which I find FUN! I finally feel that I have reached pretty decent coloring skills and submitted my test to Spectrum Noir for Accreditation!  

I would love to be apart of what seems like a very friendly helpful, and amazingly talented group of ladies. I like to keep busy, and hate being bored - my creative juices seem to ever flowing! Something I'm sure most crafting people can understand. :) 

Thank you so much for your consideration and good luck to all the other applicants!
