After the birth of my daughter in my mid-20's, my time for television viewing was limited, yet I still wanted to create with my hands. I discovered rubber stamping and rubber stamp clubs; one night out a month to gather with other women and create.
My love of rubber stamping led to working in a rubber stamp and scrapbook store once my daughter went to preschool. Scrapbooking was the natural progression from stamping, a book to create that included color, stamping and the thousands of photographs I had documenting my daughter's childhood.
Eventually there were more photographs than there was time to create scrapbooks, I fell behind documenting my daughter's life. The middle school and high school years rushed by. Before I knew it she was leaving for college. I had time to myself again, time to create, but I didn't know where to start. Photography lured me, but I needed to find a purpose for the photographs. I learned about blogs, I started one, finally my creating was on course again.
