Introduction Hello! I am Carrie Graziano otherwise known as "cricket". I've been creating forever! My husband, Sal, and I have been married since 1993 and we have a daughter, Juliana, a son, Robert. I am a Creative Memories consultant, a Unit Leader with a team of my own. It's a career that enables me to stay home with our miracle child, Juliana. After many years of hoping, our dreams came true in 2004 when she was born. Robert is icing on the cake! Plus, being a consultant for a scrapbooking company is handy when I literally take hundreds of photos of my precious kids every year! I am a decorative artist having achieved both my Certification of Decorative Art (CDA) and my Teacher of Decorative Art (TDA) accreditations through the Society of Decorative Painters. I travel to teach painting techniques to chapters around the country, and also teach some local classes in my home studio. And if that's not enough, I am an avid stamper, card-maker and quilter (hoping to start designing more quilts soon!) Whew! I created this blog to showcase some of my creations and to inspire and motivate others to start or continue using your minds and hands and make something just your own!

When you hesitate before hitting snooze on your alarm clock, are you being lazy?

No, contemplative.
