Hello, my name is Dottie. My favorite pastime is making personalized hand-made greeting cards. I send my cards to family and friends, but I don't sell them. My card making is a hobby that I thoroughly enjoy. I've been asked many times if I would make cards to sell, but to accept orders and work under deadlines would negate my enjoyment and spontaneity. When a hobby becomes a job it's no longer fun to me.
I have been a Donna Dewberry One Stroke Certified Instructor since 2004. I used to teach painting classes at my local Hobby Lobby store and in my home studio, but that lost its luster. I now only paint for my own pleasure.
My husband is an Electrical Contractor and during the winter months he and I make lots of fabulously scented soy candles to give as gifts to friends, family and to his customers and business associates.
I belong to several card-making and Copic Marker groups. That is why I have started this blog. In all my groups the members share their works with each other through their blogs, but I didn't have one or know how to make one. This blog was started so I could share my own creations with everyone else who has so graciously shared their art work with me. The only reason I am able to do this is because my fifteen year old granddaughter is actually doing it for me. I hope I am able to learn some things from her through the process and one day I may be able to continue this on my own. I hope.
