Blog Spotlight | Pretty Inky Paper Crafts

I am running a feature spotlighting other Review & Giveaway Blogs. If you have one and would like to be featured, please email me at [email protected]

Today I would like to welcome Linda from Pretty Inky Paper Crafts. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…

Please tell me about yourself.

I enjoy rubber stamping, paper crafting and all that goes along with it. It is my #1 hobby and has been for about 3 years now. Since February 2009 I have become a mostly hobby Stampin Up! demonstrator and have made so many new and wonderful friends. I host classes in my home monthly and believe in Customer Service as a top priority! About 5 years ago, I graduated from ASU West with a degree in Medical Social Work with honors. I love working with people from all backgrounds. I have almost an entire spare bedroom designated as my studio and I enjoy being organized as much as possible. I am happily married to the man of my dreams for the past 5 years, have two grown sons, ages 35 and 28 with two lovely grand daughters ages 21 months, that I secretly hope one day will join me in my paper pursuits. If there is anything specific that you would like to know more about, please ask.
