About Caly

I’m a wife and mother to 3 little boys. I work full time and during my spare time (which I force myself to have), I love to craft. My husband recently graduated from medical school which prompted our move to a little farm town in Ohio. Before my move, I got introduced to Stampin’ Up! and I have been obsessed, addicted, simply mesmerized by it. I live to stamp. I make mostly cards and have self taught and “cased” other people’s work, but I can see that this is now and forever a big part of me that I don’t think I would ever want to walk away from.

Today, December 16th, 2014, I’ve made my first baby steps to living a new dream – a corner of my happiness. I’ve created this blog and an email address just for myself to store my ideas and share my craft ideas with everyone.

UPDATE: July 22, 2015. Today, my husband officially accepted a job offer to complete his medical residency in Kansas City, Missouri where we are from. I’m so happy to move back and to grow around crafters I know and love who have introduced me to this hobby and have supported me through it. I will no longer be crafting alone!!!!

UPDATE: March 2, 2017. I’ve had a baby, Ya’ll! She’s turning 1 in 4 weeks. I can’t even begin to tell you what a beautiful miracle Lyla has been in our lives. Each and every day, I am in awe of her. She gives me little time to craft but I try to sneak it in whenever I can. I’m sorry I haven’t made many videos like I did before she was born. I’m sure you can understand I just don’t have those extra hours to edit and do voice-overs anymore. My husband is finishing residency in a few months. I’m still working full-time as a pharmacist and loving my current position. Life is busy but I recently was told by Darlene Devries that busy people are the ones that get it done! Soooo true! You all are a blessing to me. Thank you so much for your continued support!

  3. Hi!
    I noticed you do stampin up. I also wanted to introduce you to a new company called Fun Stampers Journey. You can go to Funstampersjourney.com/MaraiahCrystal. We have a lot of different and new products. Not to take anything away from stampin up because I like to order from SU all the time.


  4. You are so talented and creative and well organized! I’m not a crafter myself but I admire your work! I know it is your passion.
