I am a wife, mom of two and a freelance writer, graphic designer and photographer with a passion for telling stories. My favorite kinds of stories to tell are those that capture life as it happens: real, unposed and honest. I believe that every person has a story to tell, and every story is important. How we tell those stories is up to us. For me, it’s through my personal scrapbooks.
I am a creative creature who finds pure joy when I am doing something on screen or on paper. I have been writing, designing and photographing as my career since I graduated from college in 1999. Scrapbooking is the perfect hobby for me because it combines all of those interests—writing, design and photography—in one neat little personal package.
I have been scrapbooking in some ways since I was in high school in the early 1990s, but I found “modern” scrapbooking in 1997. My first album was one of my husband’s and my dating years, created in preparation for our wedding in 1999.
Digital scrapbooking caught my interest in 2006, when I made my first all-digital album as a tribute to my beloved grandmother, who passed away early that year. I have been hooked ever since!
This site is a place for me to share my creations with friends, family and whoever else might be interested. I am also just getting started selling some of the papers and elements (an, in the future, layout templates and other projects) I create, so this is a place to share those as well.
