My Story

In a nutshell.

Hello, my name is Shylo Dyche and I live with my wonderful husband, two giant teens, two mini-dachshunds and one fat cat.  I believe I have crafted in some form since I was a child.  In the last few years I have found that I love to learn new crafts much to my husbands horror.  Over the past few years I have become more focused on creating scrapbooks and hand made cards.  With the desire to improve my paper crafting abilities I began researching techniques and products that would help take me to the next level.  It was at this time that I became interested in Stampin' Up!  After purchasing many awesome products I decided the next step would be to become a demonstrator so that I could work at building a business doing something I love.

Why a Pirate?

 Well, toward the end of 2017 I noticed changes in my body that led me to the doctor and many tests.  In the end I was diagnosed as having a rare and aggressive form of breast cancer called Inflammatory Breast Cancer.  Before I began my treatment journey I knew I would lose my hair.  I first decided to cut off my long blonde hair and do something radical with the color (pictured above).  As my hair started falling out I decided to go ahead and shave my head.  Anyway, long story short..I was standing in my kitchen and my youngest son came up to me and asked, "So, are you going to get a peg leg, a parrot and an eye patch?"  I just kind of stared blankly at him and he laughed and told me I was changing into a pirate.  I liked the thought of being a Pirate battling cancer and decided to incorporate it into my business name.  AAArrrgh!!

Final Thoughts.

I could be depressed about the road I have before me but you know what?  I am not.  I am surrounded with an AWESOME support group both at home and in my business.  In my business I am a member of a truly great and supportive team that does not hesitate to send me cards and messages to ensure I am doing well on all fronts.  What more could a girl hope for?
