about me

I began paper crafting about 25 years ago when I learned that it was acceptable for adults to play with stickers, markers and rubber stamps.

After 20 years in the newspaper industry, I decided to make paper crafting a career. Now I spend my time teaching others to enjoy crafting, while also writing about scrapbooking for Michigan Scrapbooker Magazine and serving on several design teams. I also have a tiny retail store that I take to crops, retreats and special events.

My designs have been published in local and national magazines and catalogs and on product packaging.

When I am not crafting, I am most likely growing chickens, rabbits, turkeys and vegetables, cooking, reading or finding beautiful things to photograph. I am the proud mother of two grown children. I live in Michigan with my husband, two cats, two bunnies and eleven hens.

You can contact me at candyspiegel@yahoo.com. If I do not respond in a few days, please send it again. Sometimes Yahoo eats e-mails — or at least their spam filter does!
