This is me at two years old. I've pretty much been entertaining people since about this point. This is the real me...I'm just a little bit taller and fluffier now.
Nine years after we were married, we had this darling girl we call Sweet Caroline. I have homeschooled her from Kindergarten to her current year which is 11th grade.
We live in the hills of Tennessee, more specifically, very near Nashville. Yee-haw y'all! This is my little spot where I sit and make stuff up.
I started scrapbooking in 2001. My style is clean and classic with an emphasis on storytelling.
After working and teaching in four scrapbook stores, I became certified as a scrapbook instructor by EK Success. I love to teach and talk about scrapbooking more than anything else in the world! My mission in life is to get people printing their photos, telling their stories and I want them to have fun doing it. If I can make someone laugh and feel happy, my job is done. :)
In early 2015, I left a job of almost eight years as a personal assistant to work full-time on my creative business. Many people wonder what that means so here's the answer:
I host three podcasts. They are The Scrap Gals Podcast with Tiffany and Tracie, Magic Memory Keepers: Documenting Your Disney Memories and...
My newest one, called Live Inspired. Live Inspired is a behind the scenes look into the lives of my favorite creative people. Each week, I ask my guest, "When your job is to inspire others - how do YOU Live Inspired?" This show airs every Thursday.
I also have a new YouTube series to go along with Live Inspired. As time allows, I post a video inspired by a guest on Live Inspired (this is on hiatus at the moment, due to some classes I'm working on).
I often teach scrapbook and cards classes locally. I mainly do it because I like to help keep the crafty community alive and I enjoy setting aside time to just play.
I teach classes here on my blog. My first class was Easy Hand Lettering.
My latest class is called "Ready, Sketch, Go!" and it is jam-packed with over 12 hours of content. You can find out more about it here.
I recently released a class at Big Picture Classes. It's called Start with the Story and you can find out more about it here. If you're not a member of BPC, you can get a FREE trial membership so you can take my class!
I also recently contributed to a class at Get It Scrapped with Debbie Hodge. It's all about Pocket Pages and it is chock-full of scrappy info! You can find out more about a membership at GIS here.
I spend my days chit-chatting in the Facebook group I host with Tiffany Lowder (my Scrap Gals Co-Host who is also one of my besties). This is a great group of 2,500+ ladies who love to talk all things scrappy. If you're looking for a place to hang out, join us!
As you can see, I'm a busy bee!
If you want to see samples of my work, here is a gallery. I love to make cards, mini-albums, pocket pages, art journals, artful memory planners and layouts. Oh! I also am obsessed with Disney. Here's a Disney album I made and I'm starting a new one soon.
So that's it. That's me. I hope you'll stop by and visit again soon!
