About Caly

I’m a wife and mother to 4 wonderful kids – 3 boys and 1 girl. I have an incredibly sweet and supportive husband who encourages me as I balance between family, work, and hobby.

I was introduced to Stampin’ Up! in June 2014 and the rest is history!  We had moved to a little town in Ohio at the time and knew no one, so I self-taught through You-Tube videos and found that there was a BIG world beyond Stampin’ Up!

We’ve moved “home” to the Kansas City area since.  It has been slow growth for me since I work full-time, but I’m ok with that.  I’ve learned so much about the paper crafting world and feel that I am constantly learning and growing.

[Today, December 16th, 2014, I’ve made my first baby steps to living a new dream – a corner of my happiness. I’ve created this blog and an email address just for myself to store my ideas and share my craft ideas with everyone.]

Please contact me if you would like to share comments/questions/concerns! craftincaly@gmail.com

  3. Dear Caly
    Wow I love your family. Tell thank you to your beloved husband for supporting you on behalf of me. Your children are adorable.
    I am from Sri Lanka a journalist by profession a mum and a grand ma to a lovely girl of six years. I work part time that means i hv to be at my job always as i hv to earn to support my daughter and grand daughter who are studying in NZ. My daughter works part time as a chef too. It is the last lap of the race I hv to run. My daughter will finish her studies end of this year. My grand daughter is on a domestic visa.
    Though I earn I have to be very careful spending the money. I sacrifice everything for them happily. My husband died of a liver cancer in 2016 and my daughter who is turning 29 with a girl of 6+ is divorced. I live with them and then cm back to Sri Lanka when my visa expires.
    This year i will hv to be in Sri Lanka unless a miracle happens.
    My first love is crafting but it has taken a back stage due to my other commitments. I am also learning Korean and to play the guitar. (baby Steps)
    The first thing i do in the morning is get up at 4 am wash and pray for everybody to be healthy and happy including you. From today I will be praying for your lovely family too. I want everybody in this world to be happy and healthy.
    Thank you for making me happy my dear friend. I am going to sit one day and go through all your posts one by one as i really honestly love what you create amidst your super busy schedule. You add your love to them.
    Love you and your family loads
    Hugs from Sri Lanka.
