I started paper crafting a few years ago. My youngest daughter became interested in it about a year ago. We started attending classes and crops together as a way of spending time together. It quickly became apparent that her talent and passion for the craft far exceeds mine. While I still enjoy making a few cards,she is Queen of Paper in our house. One of her Christmas presents this year was a die cutting machine. I thought I could add something to make her crafting time more enjoyable.
I cleaned, organized, and arranged a studio space in the basement.
