Hi everyone, I would love to tell you a little about myself. I am happy married to hubby Danny, I have 4 boys Jonathan, Vincent, Andrew and Nicholas and a boxer named Dallas. I currently live in Pennsylvania, but being born and raised in New Jersey, I will always be a Jersey girl at heart.
I've been dabbling in arts/crafts for about 5 to 6 years now, started out with paper crafting, soon after, altering art and most recently, mixed media. Although I mostly enjoy creating altered art and mixed media, I still have a love for paper crafting. I do a wide variety of projects, anywhere from cutesy cards to grungy altered art, but my style tends to lean towards vintage or "vintage like" shabby chic projects.
I think I do my best work when challenged, especially when it pushes me to go outside the boundaries. Those who know me know I get bored very easily, so I'm always looking for diverse ways to create... the down fall is, I want to do it all, unfortunately that sometimes keeps me from doing anything at all, hence why being challenged keeps me on my toes.
My mom who was a very creative and talented crafter, passed away from a rare cancer in 2011. My heart continues to break for her each and every day and to know that we would be side by side creating and bonding in such a way, saddens me that much more. In tribute to her creativity and for being the most loving and kind woman that she was, I decided to include part of her name "Lina" from Idalina, into my blog title. (miss you mom) <3
Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a fun and creative day!!!xx
