My name is Yvette Olea. I have been a crafter for most of my adult life. I have dabbled in many different crafts, such as crochet, cross stitch, scrapbooking, card making and so much more. I was blessed to be raised by two loving parents and I credit them with making me the strong and loving woman that I am. I met the love of my life when I was still in high school and we have been married for 37 years. I am the mother of four, grandmother of nine biological grandkids and five bonus grandkids. I am fortunate to have a very supportive family and they continue to support me during this crafty endeavor. I worked for an elementary school district for over 25 years as an Administrative Assistant, Executive Assistant and Information Compliance Specialist. Since I am now retired, I am pouring myself into spending much of my time being creative in my wonderful craft room. I have always loved making/giving handmade items and have focused my new found energy on making cards and so much more. I have learned many new and fun techniques over the last two years by simply watching other creators on YouTube. I am forever grateful for the support and encouragement of this amazing creative community.
