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. She is almost 20 now (gasp!) and a lovely young lady.
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 The Scrap Gals Podcast. We have a subscription service that offers a weekly, one-hour podcast plus loads of digital goodies for you to print and scrapbook with!
I used to teach scrapbook and cards classes locally, that is currently on hold. I do still love to make cards. Here's an example of one of my faves.
I used to have some online classes available, including a series Ready, Sketch, Go! They are retired now and I'm done with online classes for a while.
A few years ago, I 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 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 more than 10,000 ladies who love to talk all things scrappy. If you're looking for a place to hang out, join us!
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!
