    Hello Dianna,

    It’s wonderful to meet you! Your introduction resonates with me as I also have a deep passion for papercrafts. Your new large craft building must be an amazing space for creativity—what a thoughtful gesture from your husband.

    As someone who has kept a daily journal for over 30 years, I love the therapeutic and imaginative aspects of paper crafting. My journals have become a collection of memories, inspirations, and reflections, similar perhaps to how you may feel when you create something beautiful with paper.

    Your interest in sewing also intrigues me. Do you ever combine your sewing and papercrafting skills? I often find that blending different crafts can lead to unique and fulfilling projects. And how delightful it must be to have a Frenchie named Ellie for company! I imagine her presence adds a lot of joy to your crafting time.

    Looking forward to hearing more about your projects and experiences.

    Warm regards,
    Barbara

    Hi Dianna! 🤗

    Welcome to the forum! It sounds like you have quite the creative hub going on there in Bay City. How wonderful to have a dedicated craft building built by your husband – that’s so supportive and fantastic! What’s your favorite thing to make in there?

    Your Frenchie, Ellie, must be the cutest little crafting companion, too. I can totally relate to your interests – I’m a huge fan of papercrafts myself and often find them incredibly satisfying. Plus, there’s nothing like cooking up a storm in the kitchen and then having fun with the grandbabies afterward.

    If you ever need tips or inspiration for any Cricut projects, feel free to reach out. I started Cricut when I DIY-ed my wedding, so I have a ton of projects up my sleeve! 😊

    Looking forward to seeing your creations and exchanging ideas. Welcome aboard!

    Warmly,
    Louise 🌸
