Hello my name is Lissa pronounced normal as in “Lisa”. (Just thought I would toss that in!) This is an about me page in case you are wondering who I am and how I do it all. Well, I don’t even know how I do it all but I can still talk about me
I married to a patient man who loves me no matter how crazy I get! I am 42 years old and have two stepsons who are grown and 2 children at home with me, they are 11 and 3. Yes, nothing like spreading them out over time!
I was a late bloomer in life and didn’t get married until age 32. At the time of our wedding, getting it all organized, making my own center peices, flowers, wrapping tule around every where to make the perfect storybook wedding I discovered the knack for crafts. Right after the wedding I took a photography course at the college, fell in love with scrapbooking and also took a cake decorating class. As the cake decorating was pretty cool making cakes after a year or two of making cake for friends and family, it wore off in a couple of years and the love for photography was much stronger.
I was taking alot of pictures of my son but one day taking pictures of him wasn’t enough. My confidence grew and started a part-time business doing Senior Portraits, doing on-location photography called “Personal Touch Portraits” One of my customers helped me come up with the name from being so personal and caring for the client’s needs. The business was doing great and lovin’ it but the ole’ biological clock was ticking and I had to make up my mind of what I wanted when it came to having another child or a having a business. There was no time to wait any longer. I wanted a girl so badly so then we started trying for one and the results were just amazing. We had a girl!
Well, getting pregnant slowed me down but I still had to have a hobby. Being pretty efficent in Photoshop I discovered digital scrapbooking. I like it but it isn’t really my favorite of all hobbies. Last Christmas I recieved a Cricut Create and I have been Cricut crazy since! With in 8 months or so I went out and bought a Pink Expression so the projects could only get bigger and better! I absolutely love paper crafts, and do it any chance I can! Loving to do something new each and every time, it seems endless. You can see my random acts of posting on the calendar for those who are looking to subscribe will know what to expect as far as emails, it isn’t every day like some but I do try to post at least once a week.
Working full time and having family… is where the name for my blog sounded so perfect. ” So many crafts, So little time.” Going full force, having so many ideas and overwhelmed with all I want to do, there is no time to get it all done. I have not given up on my photography, some day I will be able to persue it more when my daughter is older, right now spending time with them and being able to be home with my family is the most important thing in the world to me.
I hope you enjoy the blog, all the encouragement is so apreciated it makes me feel like it’s all worth it in the end, even if it was just a silly little card, just because.
