I am so excited to be guest blogging for Sassy Baby.
My name is Tracy Rushton and I am a “do-it-yourselfer” and “Craftaholic” all rolled up into one little person.
I love sharing crafts with others and over the past 20 years have taught sewing, tole painting and cake decorating classes to friends, neighbors and anyone who would sign up and listen to me. However, my true passion is scrapbooking and paper crafts. (There is just something about the smell of paper that sets my heart a flutter.) I have worked, designed and taught for a few of the Local Scrapbook stores in the Salt Lake and Bountiful areas and also in Wyoming.
I have been married to my best friend for almost 24 years and we have 6 children, although most are teens or young adults now. We have 5 girls, who let me create all sorts of girly items for them; and 1 boy who tolerates the “craftiness” as best he can. Our home is usually crazy and a little chaotic at times but I wouldn’t change a thing.
I hope you enjoy these fun little Valentine cards and envelopes. They were a lot of fun to put together for you.
PS My baby (who is 11) can't wait to make some for her own class party this year :)
