Welcome to Handcrafted Greetings!

About Handcrafted Greetings:

Handcrafted Greetings originated out of my love for paper crafting. I am an avid card maker, and as I discovered more crafting techniques I naturally wanted to share them with other crafters. The internet provided the perfect place and in 2003 I began moderating a message board and I created my first web site. Much has changed since then, I no longer moderate the message board and my web site has undergone a name change as well as several re-designs. What has not changed is my love for crafting and my desire to share what I have learned.

What you will find:
