It's been awhile since Tammy has been a design team member here but we are welcoming her back with open arms! I know you will see why ;)
Hello...my name is Tammy. I make my home on the left coast, in Huntington Beach, CA (the O.C. LOL!). I live with my husband of 18 years, Eddie, and my 18 year old daughter Courtney and 15 year old son Hunter. My oldest, Jessica, is 26 and recently married. She lives in Northern California in beautiful Carmel. We also have an old black lab named Jake, a chubby beagle named Abby, and our female calico cat name Pablo. Fortunately we recently gave away our iguana! Unfortunately, our sweet chinchilla, Bob Saget, passed away last Christmas. We are going to stick to normal pets from now on ;)
I don't work outside the home, but help my husband out with our business, and recently opened an Etsy shop. I started scrapping about 10 years ago when my daughter Courtney was involved in musical theatre and was doing about 3 plays a year. The pictures were piling up, so my friend got me to start (I had dabbled in it, but not really getting everything into books). Little did she know what a monster she'd create! I love challenges, especially sketches. And I don't think I have a style...I sometimes will do a certain thing over and over till I get sick of it because I like the look...then I move on :) I bought a Cricut, but don't use it! I do like my Slice, and I love my punches. I also love fussy cutting...it's such an easy way to make embellishments that match your paper :) I also enjoy altered arts and card making.
I also love musical theatre...to watch ;) I have season tickets with a group of girlfriends, and look forward to our nights out, with dinner before. And when I love a show, I will see it often!! I've seen "Rent" more than 6 times, and "Wicked" at least 3. I have too many other favorites to name, but I just love them because the music makes them fun, does that make sense? Other than that, lately my husband and I have been "being tourists in our backyard"...seeing things locally that we either haven't yet, or it's been a long time. It's a fun way for us to spend time together.
