B and B Kiss OriginalI am an avid part-time crafter who absolutely loves my dogs, Biscuit and Bandito. They are often featured in my craft projects, and they can usually be found at my side whenever I am crafting.

I turned to crafting as a way to engage in something that I enjoy, joining Youtube in the fall of 2013 on a whim (because I wanted to comment on a video). Since then, I have been embraced by the crafting community, that amazingly spans the whole world. Now I enjoy every minute I can spare to this wonderful activity.

I don’t limit myself to one type or style of crafting. That is, while my first love is drawing (as you might guess from all my digis), I also enjoy scrapbooking, card making, altering items, water coloring, painting, and art journaling.  There are no limits, and I find that the more things I try, the more I want to try!  After all, what’s the point if we don’t enjoy the process? Crafting surprisingly helps me relax and focus at the same time, which I think also helps my health.
