Why did you start scrapbooking and how did you get started?
After walking into a store called Sweetpeas and Snapshots and taking a mini book class from Emily Falconbridge, I fell in love with the products and the people. I attending a CHA show in 2007 and haven’t been able to resist the hobby ever since!
What are the three products you can’t live without?
Thickers, patterned paper, and stamps!
Where do you scrapbook?
Whereever I can spread out, but right now in my studio that is almost unpacked.
What do you listen to/watch while scrapbooking?
Nothing usually but occasionally Pandora or the Paperclipping Roundtable.
What is your favorite color combination?
Right now black and white with pops of color- yellow in particular.
What/who inspires you?
The world around me, travels, little things, and creative people who do what they love.
Do you record every moment or just special ones?
Well, if you asked JC, he would say I record every little thing. But honestly, I think I just take a lot of photos and scrapbook all kinds of things that are special to me for one reason or another.
What is your favorite thing about scrapbooking?
I enjoy the creative process and the fact that it is in a way, reliving the memories.
Do you have a scrapbooking goal?
I hope to just keep being inspired to document my life for years to come.
What are three facts about your that others might not know.
Although I love traveling and going to new places, I am a homebody at heart and creature of habit. I’m allergic to so many things- dust, grass, cats, and the list goes on, but thankfully nothing food related. I eat a lot of food and would most of the time rather have an additional salty item as opposed to getting dessert.
