Hi there, I’m Lisa; the artist behind Chase & Main. And this is my handsome husband, Mike. I call him “Lovebug”. If I call him by his name… he knows he’s in trouble 🙂
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I’m Kyle’s mom, Mike’s wife and Harry’s daughter. More about them later:) While I have a very hectic career and avid social life, I LOVE CREATING beautiful things in my free time! I’ve been creating since I was in my early twenties (so… about 4 years, ehem 🙂 and my style has evolved over time. My personal style could best be described as modern vintage. My home is city farmhouse chic (is there even such a thing) and I lean towards neutral tones. I have created everything from beautiful hand stitched quilts to rustic planter boxes and shabby distressed wood signs. I enjoy arranging fresh flowers, gardening, canning in the fall, and home decor and interior design. My husband and I also enjoy camping during the summer and traveling to our home in Florida the other 9 months of the year. (We live in upstate New York and so it’s basically winter year round:)
I am affectionately known as “Mom” to my son, Kyle. He is the light of my life and my reason for breathing. He’s a handsome one and makes me crazy at the same time … like kids do. He’s a great kid and has spunk… wonder where he got that from?? -I met and married my husband Mike in 2016. He is my best friend and I am so incredibly thankful and blessed that God chose him for me to tackle life with. And then there’s my dad. He’s always been an amazing dad.. Recently my husband and I moved my dad into the house next door so that I can keep a close eye on (AKA annoy) him at regular intervals. I’m one lucky girl to have so many amazing men in my life.
There is no shortage of lovely ladies around me either. You’ll probably get sick of hearing me talk about my best friend, Jess. She is to thank for this crazy blog… well, not exactly. You see, what happened was…. she introduced me to Stampin Up. And so it began -How great is it that I get to share my favorite hobby of all time with my bestie??!! To me, she’s Jessie… but don’t call her that, mmmmmkay? Only I’m allowed to call her Jessie. Everyone else is banned. It’s our special thing. To you, she’s Jessica. Or Jess. Never Jessie 🙂 Funny thing is, we also share the Mackey last name. But we’re not related. I mean.. she married a Mackey and I also married into a Mackey tribe, just a different tribe. So we’re all Mackey’s. She married in for the last name, just like I did BUT our husbo’s aren’t related. Or even from the same state.
And then there’s Lynn. She’s been in the SU biz for awhile, so it should be no surprise that she’s a familiar face to many. Lynn is my upline. She’s my friend. She’s my sounding board and my source for inspiration. And she’s a really great person. You see, Lynn adopted me shortly after I signed up as a Stampin Up demonstrator. She didn’t have to do that. She wanted to. Because of Lynn, I am now taking my Stampin Up endeavors to the next level and I am so proud and honored to call her friend.
