Hi Everyone! My name is Leslie Shimasaki. I owe my Asian last name to my awesome husband, Daniel. We met as kids and reconnected many years later on Facebook! Anyway, I have begun this journey online and hope to join others in a creative, fun, supportive community.
I have a love of creativity and have dabbled in many crafts. Drawing, painting, paper crafting, refurbishing furniture and others. Some of my past work experiences reflect this. I was a kitchen/bath designer. I also did some home staging for real estate agents. I was an independent consultant for Stampin’ Up, which supplies paper crafting supplies. After leaving my home state of Florida to be with my new husband, I became a professional framer. I love helping people find beautiful ways to frame their art and family photos. I now live in Arkansas (a lot different than Florida), but it is growing on me.
As far as crafting goes, I have discovered polymer clay and I am hooked! A very versatile medium, polymer clay is awesome! I love working with it and showing others its flexibility and the endless ways it can be used. I am looking forward to meeting more people who love polymer clay and learning from them. Come join me!
