About Me


Well let’s see I guess since this is an about me page I guess you want to know a little more about me. I can tell you right now that people who know me will not classify me as “normal” (see the quotes) :) hmmm let’s see I am definitely an easy going live for the moment kinda gal. I love anything that sparks my creativity and imagination. I have been told that I have a creative mind and with that brings soooo many many interests.  I think I have ADD when it comes to the crafting world. I have a room full of everything that is related to stamping, scrapbooking, painting, sewing and the list goes on and on. I am also a “techie” so I am always drawn to the latest machine or tools for crafts and all I can say is, that is bad…bad…bad… for the pocketbook. Soooo many cool things out there and it’s so hard to resist…..I love scrapping and altered art projects. I am an instructor for our LSS where I get to design and teach classes while enjoying every minute of it. I love the unexpected and out of the box thinking when it comes to my layout designs. 

Here are some of the things about me you may or may not know about me:

I am a mom…I am married to my best friend…I love scrapbooking…I collect paper like there is no tommorow (really Iam a paper addict)…I love sushi…I enjoy hanging out and playing board games with friends (especially when I am winning (: )…. I love dogs…I like walks along the ocean…I heart photography…I enjoy nature hikes and walks…I laugh just because…I love sayings and quotes that touches me and inspire me…I love curling up and reading a good book…love to explore and experience new things and cultures…I sleep with a ton of pillows on the bed…I don’t drink soda…my favorite flowers are daisies…I don’t like drama…I cry during touching commercials…I collect vintage items especially cameras, toys and books…I enjoy playing Wii with friends…I sing karaoke (only among close friends and family)…Somewhere in time (w/ Christopher Reeve) is one of my favorite movies…I’m easy going…I despise doing laundry…I love to vaccum…I will fiercely defend my friends and loved ones…


I am Out and About

I decided to join the Blog nation and here is my piece of the world that I give to you. In here you will hopefully find inspiration, laughter and friends. I am an artist and mom by day, a wife and mom at night and a Cricut and SCAL addict during my free time. I can’t seem to stop creating cut files on the computer once I get on. I will be posting my work for viewing and will also be posting video tutorials on all things craft related and maybe some funny snipets of my days. I think my strongest asset is working with various graphic programs combined with my natural sense for design. I have studied Commercial/Graphic Design and I apply what I have learned there to my paper creations and designs. I have also taken several Photography courses in the past and use the priciples I have learned in my scrapbook pages and paper creations. For all of you who have taken the time to stop in I thank you and I hope to see you back frequently. Remember to stop in again as I continue to add to my blog world and make sure to check for some free cut files to use with your work. Smile

Well I think that’s enough about me for now, you’ll just have to stay connected to learn more about me as we go along. I would love to hear about you too, so please feel free to leave a comment or e-mail something about yourself or if you have a deisgn request let me know and I’ll see what I can come up with.

Wow we have quit a bit in commen… I’m into photography, and I love to play with photoshop to enhance/edit my photography to the next level. Heck I even have a pen tablet. I’m not a whiz at using it yet.
I too have a room full of scrapbooking, stamping, sewing, etc. I love creating …. I would consider myself more freestyle, and I love altering things like books, or like what you seen me working on this weekend. I mean who knew what a few pieces of chipboard could be good for.
I think we would make awesome crafting friends and I would love to get together sometime and scrap with ya, or sew, or whatever our creative minds feel like doing.

I know, after I read your profile I thought the same thing. I would LOVE to be craft buddies and we definitely have to get together. I just re-did my scrap room with some deals I found at a store closing. I snagged some 12×12 paper racks for a really really good deal. I was so EXCITED!
yup… it does not take much to make me happy.

I just watched your mini file folder tutorial (4PSPC Make a fun file folder – mini album [just edited and re-posted}on youtube and am in the process of making one. Loved the paper on the front of the folder.

This is a little off the topic, but I loved your choice of music and would love to know the title of the music, the artist and name of the CD if possible.

Hi Row – I attended my first class at Memories last Friday night. I saw you name listed on something and decided you must be the Row I met at Laura Z’s place a couple of years ago…then I saw your photo her and knew it was you! Good to see you are still in the area…hopefully we will bump into each other sometime soon. Deb
