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 ūüôā¬†

¬† 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¬†ūüôā¬†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.

‚ÄčThere 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 ūüôā ¬†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.
