Extra Styles


My crafting resolutions:
1. To create more than 50% of my projects with either recycled materials or scrap left over materials to cut waste and excessive earth fillers.
2. Teach paper crafting classes and share the Joy.
3.Custom Design Products I love to use and share.
4. Learn everyday what it takes to be patient, understanding, tolerant and giving.
