Greetings! My name is Caroline Bucky-Beaver and I’m so glad you’re here. So, a little about me…by day, I’m an instructional technology coordinator, constantly working with all kinds of tech, which is the geeky side of me. However, after having my fingers dance across a keyboard and staring at a monitor for most of my day, I love to come home and create something with my hands. That’s where my love of scrapbooking, card making and paper crafts came into being.
Now, I’m not totally off the grid when it comes to my hobby. My Cricut is also a close and personal friend of mine, which requires technology to create shirts and decals, cards and more. Oh, and I’m a bit of a Pinterest addict, too. It’s like a daily treasure chest of new surprises and lovely ideas.
To help fund my crafting hobbies, I sell cards (individual ones and sets), paper crafts, vinyl decals and personalized shirts. I’m also an Independent Stampin’ Up Demonstrator, so if you’re interested in learning more about making cards and/or stamping, then I’m a great person to ask! You can check out Stampin’ Up’s product line and make a purchase from my online store here. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any inquiries.
On a more personal note, I’ve been married to my best friend, Rick, for seven years. Shocker, we met online. Together we have one sweet furbaby (Butch the tuxedo cat who has thumbs) and three adult children (his daughter and my identical twin sons).
In 2009, my oldest son, Chase, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia at the age of 13. He fought the disease for ten years, one month and two days before relocating to heaven on April 27th, 2019. If there was anyone who lived life to the fullest, always smiling and yes, chasing the joys life has to offer, it was him, which made him and how he lived the perfect inspiration for the name Chasing Joy Boutique.
