I am a wife, mom of three and a freelance graphic designer, writer and event photographer with a passion for telling stories. I love telling stories 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 have been writing, designing and photographing as my career since I graduated from college in 1999. Scrapbooking drew me in when I was very young but didn’t really become a passion until I discovered “modern” scrapbooking in 1997. That’s when I began to realize that this hobby had two important benefits for me:
- It combines all of my strongest interests: writing, design, photography, memories and family life.
- Everything comes together in a neat little package that can be handed down to my children, and (who knows?!) maybe even my grandchildren.
This personal passion overlapped with my professional passions in so many ways, that it was only natural that I would eventually transition from paper to digital scrapbooking. The freedom of being able to use my photos at any size I want, use the hundreds of fonts I have purchased for my clients’ design projects in my scrapbooks and reuse the papers and supplies I purchase from awesome designers simply makes my heart happy.
This site is a place for me to share my personal thoughts and creations with friends, family and whoever else might be interested.
