HI FROM IRIT!!




HI !! I am IRIT and I am from sunny ISRAEL.
I am very glad to be a part of this great blog DT and hope to do my best and make everyone at home proud of me as I am the only Israeli papercrafter who made into DT of any foreign blog so far.
In my " real life" I am a dentist and for last 3 years I do it as a part time job because I need some extra time to run my Israeli online scrap shop and I have a lot of fun doing something else after 25 years of teeth.
I am married for 27 years to retired high police officer and the full time family cook these days.

I am a mom to 4 grown ups : 2 sons and twin daughters and the empty nest is probably the main reason for my obsession for crafting - finally I have some time for myself
My oldest son is an army officer and recently married, a second one is " a world traveler" - for last 3 years after his army service he is out of Israel for at least 9 months a year. This year he lives in Spain and works there.

My twins live in USA for 2.5 years after their army service (we all do it here for 2 or 3 years) after they traveled all over the world ,but in 2 weeks they'll be home for college.
I need to say that I am totally addicted to crafting since I was a little girl.
For many years it was polymer clay and jewelry making, but after I've seen scrapbook LO for the first time in my life ( only 5 years ago during my visit to USA) I understood finally that I am in love with paper .

Today I mostly scrap and do altered art and less a cardmaker, but I love it all and hope to show you all my sides here.
And finally my other addiction is..... folk dancing!!
So if I am not in my crafting room- I am probably dancing.
If you want to see a bit of my work you can visit my blog- and there is a translator on it- so see you there too

HAVE A GREAT DAY!! XOXO!

LOVE FROM IRIT
