About me
I've been scrapbooking since
March 22, 2002. Yes, I really do know the exact date. Though I'd been hoarding supplies for long before that, March 22, 2002 was the night I attended my first scrapbooking class. Back then, I only had one child and a couple of boxes worth of supplies. Today, I live in northern Colorado with my wonderfully supportive husband, whom I've loved for more than a decade now, my three terrific boys, and a room overflowing with supplies. Despite (or perhaps thanks to) eight years of college, I happily stay home with my sons, where we enjoy our homeschooling journey (which, incidentally, makes for a much more flexible scrapping schedule).

Styles & Techniques
Photos. Stories. Lines. I love to bring all three together and revel in the challenge of doing so in a way that conveys true feeling…whether that be light-heartedness, warm reminiscence, bold documentation or anything else. In doing this, I lean toward the clean and simple, though love to experiment with new techniques and ideas. My natural tendency, though, is to follow the "less is more" philosophy, ensuring the emphasis on my story.

Objective
At present, I'm not actively seeking any particular scrapbooking positions, though I'm very open to discussion, welcome any freelance work and continue to pursue publication. In the meantime, I am focusing on my family, honing my style and enjoying the preservation of my family's beautiful story.
