I'm Moxie Fab!

Guess what everyone?  Today, I'm Moxie Fabber of the Week over at Cath's amazing blog.  Can you believe it?  I'm still pinching myself!


One of the questions Cath asked in the Moxie Fabber of the Week questionnaire was: Name a paper crafter who inspires you. Why are you drawn to his or her work?  I skipped this question because honestly I couldn't name just one. So...I decided to pick several and really I could pick a ton more, but had to stop somewhere.  There are so many of you that I truly admire and am thankful for your friendship and support in this blogging community.  So here's goes!


First up is Moe.  Moe introduced me to Verve and got me 100% addicted.  We were so lucky to get to meet this summer and she is a dear, dear friend to me.  We call each other kindred spirits.  Her crafting style is gorgeous.  She is the queen of buttons and bling as she appropriately named her blog and I simply can't stop staring at her designs.  I am so thankful for our friendship.


I can't really say enough about Karen.  Karen and I love to share boy stories being moms to only boys.  And Karen has one of the most amazing, unique styles ever; her comments are always personal to you and mean so much.  She got me addicted to spray mist and designed my amazing blog header.  She knows of my love for Cherry Cobbler and Chocolate Chip and the twine on my card is compliments of her!


Then there is AimesLaurie and Cristina. Holy moly do these ladies rock the CAS world.  Aimes & Laurie officially got me addicted to the gorgeous PTI Linen Impression Plate.  They are all three such kind hearted folks.  Like Moe, I was able to meet Laurie earlier this year.  Oh how I appreciate her kind texts with a simple message of "I hope you're having a great day."  I also got to meet Cristina and her oh so adorable daughter.   And...Aimes, you simply make me smile with your comments - I will meet you when our family gets to England!

Els has one of the most unique fresh styles that I admire so much.  I love watching her family grow on her blog and stare at her creations to try and learn from her!  Tomorrow's card will be a special tribute to her!


I always love when friends start their blogs too!  I special shout out to Stacey for encouraging me to start blogging two years ago and to Jen and Sandie for starting their blogs this year. Sandie is my cousin in England.  How absolutely wonderful it has been to become close to Sandie through our blogs. Her creations are fantastic.  Jen makes me smile and  I want to visit her in Bermuda (that's where Pat and I went on our honeymoon).  I'm so glad she jumped into blogging and I love her style!


When I met Laurie, I also met Jinny and Amy. True to her blog, Jinny is extremely kind hearted.  Her creations are beautiful and I appreciate so much how she shares her family and faith with us.  Amy does the most amazing things with die cuts.  I am a literal designer and am always inspired by her designs.  I think we live parallel lives too...quite often spending most of our time at the baseball fields!


As you can see, I could go one for days.  Thank you all for your friendship and encouragement.  I appreciate it very much!  I hope your new year is off to a great start!  And a final thank you to Cath for recognizing me today on the Moxie Fab blog.

    I had to smile at your blog title - my maiden last name was similar to your last name and I was nick-named Mango at one point.
