More than a few days without being creative or creating some form of artwork and I get ants in my pants. The creative itch, I like to call it. Once you get to know me, you’ll see that I scream Type A personality and I’m a bit obsessive-compulsive. Which means I can’t sit still. My hands have to be constantly busy. So scrapbooking fits well!
My preferred approach to scrapbooking memories is to use everyday pictures of my children and add something unexpected in the journaling. I love texture and dimension and lots of layers and will rarely call a page complete unless it has just a touch of handmade added into the mix. Most often it comes in the form of hand stitching on my pages. Call it my signature, if you will. I’ve been teaching and writing in some form or another for the past 8 years.
I have had the pleasure of writing scrapbook idea books and currently have 3 titles in print: “Circle Journals”, “Pens and Needles” and “Go Figure: Scrapbooking with Numbers”, all published through Pinecone Press, and the last two co-authored with Cindy Smith. I am currently doing freelance design work for Daisy Ds, Karen Foster Design and Little Yellow Bicycle.
We call Columbus, Ohio home where I reside with my 3 kids (one BIG kid and 2 littles). I’ve been married to the big kid for 13 years---he’s the most adoring father I could have ever dreamed of for my 2 spunky little princesses---Ashlyn Rose, 7, and Emma Grace, 4. Random Fact #1: I totally loathe shopping *gasp*. Random Fact #2: I LOVE peanut butter and dill pickle sandwiches. Before you say ewwwwwwwwww, I dare you to try it, even once! You might well like it. Random Fact #3: I have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do (but I’m quite out of practice).
