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. I also have a tiny retail store, click here to shop online, that I take to crops, retreats and special events.

My designs have been published in print and online magazines, featured at trade and customer shows, and placed on product packaging and in catalogs.

When I am not crafting, I am most likely raising chickens, rabbits or turkeys, growing vegetables, cooking and preserving food, 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 eight 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!

You can also find me on Facebook, here.

And on Instagram, here.
