My name is Melanie and I live in Arizona. I was born in Central New York State in what is known as the Finger Lakes Region. I was raised in a military home and my late husband, Bob, was also in the military, so I don't have a "hometown". I have lived in various places around the globe and I am now enjoying retirement in the Sonoran Desert.
I am a Christian and abundantly blessed with family and friends. I have one granddaughter - the lovely Brooke Richards, age 16! I love all animals and currently have a cat named Sluggo.
I took up paper-crafting about six years ago and am loving everything about it. I enjoy trying new techniques and fun folds, entering them into challenges.
In my youth, I loved living near the ocean and learned to sail. In my late teens, I learned to fly and earned my pilot's license. I enjoy traveling, reading (crime fiction and mysteries), family history research, and, most recently, paper-crafting. I am an avid seamstress and enjoy dabbling in quilting and needlework.
