Brenda LaBattaglia, Meems Art, MeemsArtMy grandchildren call me Meem’s, well it started out as Mimi but my eldest grandson started calling me Meem’s some time back and it has sort of stuck, so now I even call myself that when they’re all around. My name is Brenda, aka, mom, momma, Mimi and Meem’s! I have 2 amazingly talented and beautiful daughters and five grandchildren who I heartwarmingly refer to as my idy biddy’s!

When I was 12, I painted my first oil painting with the guidance and help of a neighbor and though I loved creating even then, the opportunities simply didn’t present themselves, until now. A few years ago, after finishing my undergrad degree in business, I discovered Pinterest and YouTube and this whole new world of art, DIY, crafting and card-making presented itself to me and I have been in my happy place ever since! My favorite type of art is mixed media and altered art but I do enjoy making and giving handmade greeting cards and other paper crafts and home decor.

These days, everything is digital and I grew up in a time when we wrote letters and sent cards through the mail to recognize birthdays, anniversaries, new babies, graduations and more. I wanted to continue that practice so a few years ago, I decided that I would begin making cards to send and give, not just any old cards but fancy cards! I love using different papers, inks, punches, dies, stencils, embossing folders and of course, stamps and Stampin’ UP! provides me with everything I need to create beautiful hand-crafted cards and other paper crafting projects that I am always proud to share.

I love sharing fun projects and hope to INSPIRE others to find their creative soul! I’d love for you to join me on this journey!
