About BessMarie

If you get any value from my site, please let me know.
After spending 23 years in the Marine Corps, I retired and currently live in Wake Forest, NC. I have been crafting for most of my life and especially love crafts with paper. I’ve tried a lot of crafts and keep coming back to paper. There’s something about all that pretty paper…
I discovered my love of origami while stationed in Japan. My daughter was born there and I needed something easy while attending a newborn. When I came back from a deployment in Turkey, I was introduced to scrapbooking. So long boring albums! Boy, did we have a lot of fun getting together and scrapping!!!
When I hung up my dog tags and put away my boots, I found digital crafts. While I enjoyed them, there was something that I was missing.

In 2019, I discovered Stampin’ Up and fell in love immediately. I knew I had to add it to my craft collection and I look forward to sharing it with you.
And the rest, as they say, is history!
