Hello & Welcome

I thought I would take a little time to tell you about Twinkling Paper Studio.  I have been a dedicated scrapbooker, papercrafter and photographer for more than 15 years.  I used to have a portrait studio in my home.   I have recently expanded my horizons and I've been dabbling in some of the more artistic forms of this love by learning some new techniques, making lots of greeting and note cards for family and friends and making note cards as gifts for some of the special people and friends in my life.

At the urging of several friends and family members, I was inspired to start this blog.  I guess it will be the book I have always wanted to write.  I love to share ideas, techniques and inspiration and I have learned so much from others who share their vision as well.    

I will also be dusting off and setting up a small photography area in my studio as I feel that the very best blogs out there also have the very best photography.  It's part of what draws me into them.  As I already have the lights and camera, I might as well take advantage of it but I haven't even seen them since we moved here more than 5 years ago.  I sure hope everything still works!  

I am a wife, a mother and grandmother.  Being a Mimi is pretty much my absolute favorite role.  None of the kids or grandkids live nearby, but we are located pretty much smack in the middle of everyone in our family (with only a couple of exceptions).     

For now I leave you with this lovely image, taken just as dawn was breaking early one holiday weekend on our way home to Kansas in 2002.  I never get tired of looking at the gorgeous colors in this image.
