Hello, my name is Citlalli and I am a wife to an amazing husband, and mom of two beautiful little girls. I love my family so much and they are my entire world! I am really lucky to have them in my life.

X&Y Crafts is my little world where I get to share my love for card making.

My paper crafting adventure started back in 2011. My husband was away on deployment so I decided to make a scrapbook. I wanted to find a hobby that would not only keep me occupied, but would also allow me to preserve our memories. While looking for scrapbooking ideas, I came across a card making blog, and I immediately fell in love with card making!  

I have heard many times, “I’m not creative” or “I don’t have time.” Well let me tell you that my main reason for creating this blog is to inspire you and show you that sometimes all you need is 5-10 minutes to create something amazing. You need to take some time out of your busy life to relax and invest in yourself. I have a full time job and a family to take care of and I know what it is like to feel overwhelmed, but I know that if I can do it, you can too! Crafting allows me to relax and it helps me deal with my stress and anxiety. I recommend it to everyone, I really hope you give it a chance!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I hope that you are able to find some inspiration and continue to visit often.
