My Very Own Works

Welcome to my little crafty corner of the world.

My name is Toni and  I am 44 years old and have 2 boys. Jesse is 24 and Michael is 22. I am a Grandma to the sweetest little boy, Cohen  Michael. He is 7 months old.
 I have a full time job as a chemical worker.
I love to craft.( My Mom is my inspiration.) I first picked up the crafting bug when I was about 8 years old and my Mom taught me how to sew. I have been hooked ever since. I make penny rugs and love scrapbooking and making cards. Here I will share some of my works with you.
I recently became a member of a design team for Bears Hugs Paper Piecing by Art & Scraps! (  I have been a scrapper and card maker for many years but have just started learning to paper piece. I just bought a Silhouette machine and LOVE it.  I still have so much to learn, but I am having fun and for me, thats what its all about. So take a look around and feel free to leave a comment.  Thanks for stopping by.

This layout if from the Hunny Bear at Art & Scraps.  I had fun making this layout, I made the bows and added some embellishments here and there. :)
