profile10Hello. I’m Misty Murphy. Thanks for visiting my blog! Crafting makes me happy and sharing my creations makes me even happier. I am mainly a paper crafter and, since none of my close friends are paper-crafty, I often feel isolated. I have turned to the internet to find my community groove. I decided a few years ago to share the things I create right here on this blog.

On a more personal note, I have been married to my husband for over 20 years. We have three kids, ages 16, 13 and 9. I’ve always been a SAHM and have homeschooled the kids from day one. Our educational philosophy is that learning is all around, you just have to pay attention! We have lived our lives in that very way. In fact that is how I became a paper crafter in the first place!

I am not naturally artsy. I’ve worked at it because I love it. Making pretty things makes me happy. I started making cards shortly after I got married. I began with the old Print Shop Deluxe computer software and moved on from there. I began scrapping in 1999 when my first child was born. And boy, have I learned a LOT since then! Everything I have learned about designing paper crafts, I have learned from the world around me. And as I learn more, feel more confident in what I am doing, I seek to know more. Working on improving my drawing, water coloring and photography skills keep my creative mind going.

I hope you find some inspiration here! Thanks so much for visiting and getting to know me a bit better.
