What would Swirlydoos be without our wonderful subscribers?!? It's a pleasure getting to know these ladies on the forums and from the stories they tell through their layouts. Yes,we are an amazing community, but most of all, we're a family! We appreciate each and every member and they deserved to be spotlighted. With that being said, our featured member for November is.....

Maria Harms

Here is a bit from Maria:

I am Maria Harms, married to my husband Luke for almost 24 years (Holy Batman - I was only 17 when I met him!). We have two children - a son who is 22 and a 14 year old daughter. 

I am currently employed full time as a paralegal for a personal injury attorney and live in sunny Florida where I am already complaining about the cold mornings, at a bitter 68 degrees.  Unfortunately, I have a Lupus and it seriously messes with my ability to craft as much as I would like.  I would love to participate in more round robins and challenges, but find that my current treatment, which involves being in the hospital for 9 days every 3 months is just down right time consuming and inconvenient. 

I started scrapbooking in January of 2009, after my DH watched an infomercial on the Cricut and decided I would like it and bought me one.  I loved it and ended up with a regular one, a mini, and the last one that did print and cut.  Sold them all and bought a Silhoutte Cameo which is even better.  I joined Swirlydoos in August of 2011 after a short stint at another kit club that didn't live up to my expectations.  I don't thinking have really settled on a style yet, but out of necessity, due to energy and the fact that I am just slow, I think cards and tags is my future.  I will put everything and the kitchen sink on my projects and will take a girly frilly project over having to do something masculine anyday. 

Here are a some of my favorite projects of Maria's, sure to inspire you!!
