4.16

Today is my birthday - yay!  I am now 44 :)  If you found paper Smooches recently...I thought I';d tell you just a little bit about me (the person behind PS).  I am from upstate NY (Binghamton area).  I have a twin brother, 2 older brothers and an older sister (I am the youngest by 5 minutes).  I have 2 amazing kids who will be 16 and 18 in May.  I have lived in a few places (including Maryland, Utah, Las Vegas and Oregon.  I now live in sunny Arizona.  (I even lived on a sailboat for 11 months at the Baltimore Harbor).  I started Paper Smooches a little over four years ago and it has been one of the most wonderful experiences of my life.  I have many dreams and goals...so there is still a LOT to come from me.

Today is an extra fun day because I get to announce our guest designer and some winners!!
