Hi there! I'm Darla and I live in BEAUTIFUL Northern California! I am a mother of seven terrific kids and have been married to my husband for 31 years. I have been a Stampin' Up Demonstrator since 2010 and love ALL THINGS paper crafting. I also have a scrapbooking retreat business called Scrap Happens Retreats. I love teaching and learning new techniques, sharing ideas, hosting my retreats, being a wife and a mom. Hiking, bicycling, gardening and cooking are a few of my other hobbies. I'm living for Jesus and LOVIN' LIFE!!
Hey there...I'm back with a "Make-It Monday". I went down to Happy Valley with a friend to see another AMAZING friend who is cleaning out and preparing for a craft yard sale of another friend of ours who passed away. Our friend was a VERY TALENTED paper crafter and quilter with such a humble and quiet spirit! She was always there to share her talents and wisdom with the rest of us! When I put my TREASURES away in my workshop I couldn't help but think that she was smiling down, knowing that they were in a place where lots of paper crafting fun will happen, some quilts will be made and friendships will be grown and cherished. I can't wait to get out there and put it all together! I have home group tonight, so I won't be able to do it tonight...but there's tomorrow! Here's today's "Make-It Monday"
