"Halloween Treat Bag"

Hi, my name is Tracy Durcan.  I am 35 and a stay-at-home mom.  My husband and I have three children, Miranda (6), Cooper (4) and Matthew (3).  We live in Southern New Hampshire for most of the year and spend our summers on the lovely coast of Maine.  

I mostly practice stamping and card-making, but am also interested in scrapbooking, altered art and photography.  I am hoping that over the next few years as my children get older that I will have more free time to develop my skills as a paper crafter.  I feel the possibilities of paper crafting are endless and I am really looking forward to seeing where this hobby will take me in the future.  When Iím not stamping, I enjoy movies, reading and playing with the family.
