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 worked full-time for so long, but I’m ok with that.  I stopped working as a pharmacist in May 2019 and have dove full force into creating full time. 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 a crafty email address just for myself to store my ideas and share my craft ideas with everyone.]

  1. I’m so happy you’ve found this hobby! Everyone needs to have something of their own to break from the daily life activities, and I will always support it.

  3. Hi!
    I noticed you do stampin up. I also wanted to introduce you to a new company called Fun Stampers Journey. You can go to Funstampersjourney.com/MaraiahCrystal. We have a lot of different and new products. Not to take anything away from stampin up because I like to order from SU all the time.


  4. You are so talented and creative and well organized! I’m not a crafter myself but I admire your work! I know it is your passion.
