Hello,

My name is Karen and I am an independent Stampin'Up demonstrator.  I recently celebrated my one year anniversary with Stampin'Up and decided it was time to step out of my comfort zone.  What better way to do this than to become a blogger. The much anticipated (by me only) design/site was achieved with the help of Heather Wright-Porto (http://www.blogsbyheather.com). Didn't she do a magnificent job? My "posse" is known as the Indiana Inkers.

I'm a Hoosier born and bred and live in a small town in north central Indiana. I've been married to my best friend and biggest cheerleader for 46 years. We have 3 grown sons that are married to beautiful and talented women, and we are blessed with 6 grandchildren and 2 great granddaughters.

I am a registered nurse and work full time as an auditor at a leading Indiana hospital in Indianapolis. I enjoy all kinds of crafts and have been a crafter since my teenage years, but my favorite medium is paper (scrapbooking, cards, and home décor). Despite being busy with work and home I can always find time for my papers, stamps, and inks.

In future posts I will display some of my work with directions but this is it for right now - I just wanted to get acquainted. If you would like to view some of my creations and learn more about me and my Indiana Inkers please subscribe to my blog on the right.

Thanks for stopping by and we'll chat later,

Karen
