A Place for Divalicious Inspiration!

Hello Divas and Welcome. I am Jessica :O)

Hello Divas, Jessica here in the Buckeye State.  I will be heading up the Home Decor/Gift Ideas Group here at Creative Scrapbooking Divas.  My first project is going to be posted on Monday, July 11th, so be sure to mark your calendars to join in on the fun.  I will be alternating with DT Yolie every other Monday.  She will be posting about Scrapbooking Techniques and Projects, and I will work on new projects for Home Decor/Gift Ideas.

I started following the CSDivas about 6 months ago, before the transition to blogger, and I feel quite blessed to have made a lot of friends along the way and gain some wonderful inspiration in the process.  I am BEYOND excited to join the CSDivas as they make the transition to Blogger.  I am in a place where words are difficult to express the true meaning of how I feel to have been chosen to join their Design Team.  This will be my very first DT position since starting my blog at the beginning of the year.  The Divas have been warm and inviting, generous in the support and ideas, and overall, I have felt like I gained a second family!

I have always loved the Arts and I am no stranger to paper crafting since it has served as a constant in my life over the last few years.  I enjoy working on creating wreaths, painting pictures, wood crafts, and altering an item into a masterpiece.  Definition of masterpiece ~ anything that can be seen with the eyes, admired, and enjoyed.   I am fortunate enough to have found and fallen madly in love with my soul mate, Lance.  I am also blessed to be able to stay at home with my 5 lovely children whose ages range from 16 months to almost 16 years old.  I love the color purple, all types of music, and strive to make people smile!  A few of my favorite life mottos are "Laughter is Good Medicine", "No questions is a dumb question", and "Don't forget, Karma bites".  So to sum it up, "Live by the Golden Rule, ask lots of questions along the way, while laughing whenever possible!"

Below are a some of my own personal favorite projects that I have.  I will add a link to the original blog post highlighting the steps I followed (if applicable) to complete each project.

I can't wait to meet many more friends and gain even more inspiration from new and past followers!  :O)
