Meet Sherry Wright:
Hi there, it’s Sherry and I’m thrilled to be here as guest designer for Emma’s Paperie! I’m 29 plus 5 ;0), live in northern Michigan with my husband of almost 15 years, son (5), 2 cats, 1 dog, and lots of birds and wildlife. I work full-time as a home care physical therapist traveling four counties and enjoy every minute!
I started scrapbooking after my son was born and I was given a kit at my baby shower. Living in a rural area, I had no LSS, but after I found all the on-line stores and communities I was quickly hooked. I soon branched off into creating home décor, altered items, cards, and stamped projects. I’ve enjoyed working for several manufacturers and magazines since then and always find my creative time relaxing and a great break from my “day job”. My creative time is usually after my son goes to bed on the weekends or the rare times he takes a nap.
When I’m not crafting or working, I’m spending time with family, camping, boating, or tending to my many gardens.
My scraproom has slowly evolved from a spot on the dining room table to a closet and now a scraproom/playroom in the finished basement. For Christmas one year my husband installed kitchen cabinets and countertops, bookshelves, and a play and art area for my son. It’s the best of both worlds, we can now play and create together! Now it’s nothing fancy since we have no cool organizational stores around here, but I love it! Here’s a view of the Target cubes I ordered on-line and my counter space (sorry for the bad photos but basement lighting isn’t the best):
The row on bookshelves to store toys and my ever growing collection of goodies:
The work in progress of organizing my zillions of buttons by color using the Melissa Frances jars from Emma’s:
The over the door ribbon organizer my Dad built me for my ribbon addiction ( I think I need another, lol):
My newest addition, one of my Clip it Ups, these things store a ton and make things so easy to find:
A row of storage containers for my newest goodies:
I try to keep everything organized by color, theme, or manufacturer. My stamping supplies in one place and my most used supplies within reach. While I create my space looks like a tornado went through, but I always clean up between projects so I can find everything.
Thanks for getting to know me and peeking at my space. I try to share my creations on my blog: www.sherrywright.typepad.com and would love it if you stopped by! :0)
