Hi, my name is Carmen. Welcome to Beyond The Fringe!

I love sewing, crocheting, paper crafts, drawing, doodling and more. I also like to create digital stamps and sometimes offer vintage graphics, many for free. I am a mom and a grandmother of 7 adorable grandkids (almost 8) whom I love to make things for.

Check out my Etsy Digi Shop and Craftblooms!
