My name is Justin Krieger and I’m techie that does computer consulting. I live in Long Island, NY and I have a wonderful daughter Taylor and Mini Schnauzer Winston. I have always done some kind of paper crafting ever since I was little when I made entire car dashboards out of oaktag. I discovered my love of card making in January of 2010 while watching a show on PBS. I saw them make a waterfall card and I thought I can do that so I went out and got some supplies and made one. My friend introduced me to Stampin’ Up! in August of that year and I became an Independent Demonstrator in September. I am completely hooked and take some time to make something every day. It relaxes me and is my wind down at the end of the day!

    Hi Justin, I found you through the Tic-Tac-Toe, Paper Players Page (WOW say that three times fast!) I too live in Long Island, NY (Massapequa) and was wondering what town you live in and if you hold any crafting nights, or workshops, etc? I am only making cards for 18 months. I have a small group (of SU friends, here but they have been SU for many, many years and it seems their time is very limited. Thanks a bunch.
