Debbie Mageed

I began paper-crafting in 1998 after I “retired” to raise my two youngest children, doing memory-keeping, and then started stamping a few years later. These have been my creative outlet through all stages of my children's lives. I am married to my husband, Aly, for 29 years and have four beautiful adult kids, Michael, Holly, Adam and Sarah. Moving a few times in the early years of my husband’s career, we finally settled in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 2003. My interests have varied over the years with a few crafts beyond stamping and memory keeping, with photography, reading and travel also thrown in the mix. I also stay involved in interfaith activities and volunteer work. With my youngest child now away at college, it is a great time to be creative, and do something I truly love.  My biggest interest will always be my family and will always be grateful that they are a part of my life.

Crafting is more than just a hobby for me, it's a huge part of my life. Scrapbooking is my first love, but I also make a ton of cards. My favorite crafting items are metal dies, stamps, and cut files for electronic cutters. Happy to be a part of this great challenge blog team. Hope you'll play along with us each challenge.

Thanks ladies, happy to have you join the team.
Onto our next challenge, again chosen by Caz.
