Welcome!

Hello and Welcome to my Blog!
It has taken me awhile to decide whether or not I wanted to give this whole Blog thing a try. We shall see how it goes...

My name is Dana Kirby and on Instagram my user name is Dkirbystamps. I am a wife to my husband, Ric. We have been married for 23 years (this November).  We have two daughters. Meredith is 21 and will be a Senior at Georgetown University. Morgan is 18 and will be starting her Freshman year at Gonzaga University.  So in a few short weeks my husband and I will empty-nesters.

I was a kindergarten teacher for many years. When our girls started junior high I was able to stay home and that is when my love for stamping started. I had been an avid scrapbooker for a lot of years (still try and stay current with our family album). But once I started stamping I definitely found a new love! A little over a year and half ago I started an Instagram account to enter a few contest and share my cards. It has been a fun experience and I have met a lot of kind and caring people through this online community of stampers.

I will definitely still be posting on Instagram a lot. But, it is my hopes that I can post on my blog a couple times a week to share a card more in depth, the supplies I used, etc.

I hope you follow along,
Dana
