About Me

About Me

Hey y'all! Welcome to my blog!

I'm Candace. Some of you may know me as candylou at Split Coast Stampers. First and foremost, I'm a Child of God. I was born and raised in South Mississippi, and I'm proud to be a Southern girl! I am married to Andrew.We are proud parents to Grayson - a happy, energetic toddler! I teach 6th Grade Language Arts.  When I'm not doing that, I love playing in my craft room! I also sell Plunder Design jewelry - check it out here

I started my first scrapbook in high school, but I began seriously paper-crafting in 2007. Not only do I enjoy card-making, but I also love trying out other crafty projects. Other random things I enjoy are baking cupcakes, reading Christian fiction and anything by Nicholas Sparks, the holiday-themed Reese cups (they're just better!), shopping, makeup, Coke Zero, the color pink, and Vera Bradley accessories.

Thanks for stopping by!
