and it all began...

Let me start the day by introducing the person who started World Card Making Day: Jennafer Martin was the Managing Editor of Paper Crafts Magazine at the time and I don't think even she knew what she had started...here we are 4 years later with hobbyists, magazines, stores and manufacturers all over the world jumping on board to celebrate and promote card making.

Jennafer is now the Editor-in-Chief of Creating Keepsakes, so she isn't too far away in scrapbooking land, which you know is really only a hop, skip and a jump from card making (more on that later).

I have a special place in my heart for Jennafer, as she was really my first mentor in the magazine business. She is incredibly encouraging, supportive, energetic, creative, funny, hard working and a good friend. I know you most likely won't meet her in person, but the next best thing is reading this introduction blog at Creating Keepsakes. It's pretty funny.
