8/15/18: Here’s Diana

Today's post is about our feature designer this month - Diana! Let's see what she have to share with us today!

Hello! I’m Diana and I’m 43 years old and I am one of the founding members of the SSINKspiration design blog.  I live in Northern VA, USA with my husband Chris, 13- year old son Aidan, and our little Mocha dog.

 I work full-time as a Contracts Manager for an Aerospace Company that works with the Government.  My son is very active in everything, Boy Scouts, Swimming, Baseball, Basketball, Tae Kwon Do, as well as several clubs at school.  When we're not on the go with work, school or activities we love to travel and all things Disney is tops on our list, we love the cruises as well as Walt Disney World and Disneyland!
In addition to crafting and being my son’s biggest fan or all his activities, I love shopping, relaxing, and running.  I run several races a year and am always trying to find bigger challenges.  This past January I ran the Dopey Challenge at Disney World (sense a theme here?) and ran 48.6 miles (5K, 10K, Half Marathon, and Full Marathon) over 4 days, through all 4 parks.  It was all about fun and stopped for characters and even rode a roller coaster during the Full Marathon, come on how often can you do that?

I was always into crafts but when my son was born I started getting into scrapbooking and then a friend introduced me to cardmaking and it was love at first sight.  I love that you can make beautiful cards in the fraction of a time of scrapbooking and impact receiving a handmade card has on the receiver (we don’t get enough “happy mail” these days!).  My style is clean and simple and since I have a house full of boys I tend to make quite a few “dude cards.”  I became a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in 2007 and love sharing the joy of card making and paper crafting.  I’ve been a member of several design teams and love the ability to inspire others.   
Please visit my blog to see what I’m currently working on.
