I’ve been super fortunate and grateful over the years. Things were tough for me as a single Mom back then, but both of my kids have graduated from high school. My girl has since graduated from the University of Washington and is working for a Seattle biotech company. My boy just registered for his final semester of college in New York.
Me? I have been so fortunate to shift from full time to part time work in 2013. I’ve gone from a super full DT plate to a much more manageable one. Here’s the thing, I still love to be creative…I feel like I’m still growing and learning as a designer. I love being part of this awesome papercrafting community and can’t imagine my life without it.
I know that the shift has gone from blogs to instagram. Although the blogging process is a ton of work, I still love it. Here are some projects, one from each year:
So, let’s get to the giveaways, shall we?! I’d love to treat 10 people to a cup of coffee (translation = $5 Starbucks card★) and the grand prize winner gets a $50 Ellen Hutson LLC Gift card!

★I’m loving the new holiday Starbucks Gift Cards and can’t wait to pick out 10 of them! Please note my international friends, I’m not sure if you can use them out of the U.S. but you can always regift/pay them forward.
