1 – Introduce yourself:
Hi Dolls! My name is Damaris and I’m a shy, yet somewhat loud Puerto Rican, originally from New York, now living in Florida for the past 12 years with my husband and 8 year old son. If I’m not crafting (which is rare because I have to touch paper, sticker and glue everyday), you can find me organizing my home and figuring better solutions to store all of my crafty hoards… lol. Also, I like to joke. A lot. I like to make people laugh. In a world where people are suffering major heartbreaks or stressed from day to day life events, I like to be the one who brings a smidge of joy into their lives with humor. It’s my gift to everyone I encounter. As introverted as I am (in person), online I feel more comfortable being my true silly self and paying close attention to anyone that may need a little pick me up or a kind word; which is why The Reset Girl Community feels safe for me. I can share my heart and know that I’m not being judged, ridiculed, taken for granted or ignored. Outside of that, my favorite family time is Saturday morning breakfast. We give ourselves the freedom of sleeping in as late as we need to (if there are no prior commitments), then get ready and hit up our favorite mom & pop diner called “Morgans”. The food is always amazing and the price cannot be beat. If you ever find yourself in West Palm Beach, Florida, let me know and I’d be glad to tell you all about Morgans. And maybe even join you for breakfast.
2 – How did you get started crafting?
Believe it or not, my husband introduced me to this hobby by taking me to Michaels in my quest to document our dating life. I started out smashbook style using a Hello Kitty plainly pre-decorated scrapbook ring binder with pretty colored pages, adding stickers, receipts, flight tickets, movie tickets, love letters, gift cards, etc… in doing so, my fiancé (at the time) brought me to the store – which I had seen before, but thought it was about acrylic paint and art only. I found the scrapbooking section and was hooked. Then I found the craft community on YouTube and the rest became history!
