February Guest Designer

- I have a baby asleep in my lap on a Boppy. Gotta do what you gotta do to keep him happy and get things done!
- I still have 12 pesky pounds to go before I’m back at my pre-pregnancy weight!
- I haven’t washed or cleaned the car since August… that’s unheard of for me since I’m such a neat freak!
- I take my baby on a walk to the grocery store every day to get a free sample and to escape the house.
- As soon as I’m done typing this sentence I’m gonna go to CHA!

My scrap space: I store all of my scrap supplies in the nursery. When I need to scrap I haul everything I need out onto the dining room table and make a giant mess!
My days are very long and full with taking care of my new baby, Fox, and working full-time at home, so I find I’m most creative at night after I’m done working and the baby is asleep. I can spend all day thinking about what I want to scrap and then sit down and let the ideas flow.

I started scrapbooking when I was 16 years old after I got my very first job at a scrapbooking store in Redmond, WA called Yesterdays Scrapbooking & Stuff. I’ll admit, I thought scrapbooking was a bit corny before I started working there, but soon after I succumbed to all the beautiful papers and embellishments. I’ve always been a “hands on” kind of girl and super sentimental so it seems only natural that I would LOVE scrapbooking. Here is a link to my scrapbooking gallery:

I have so many memories it’s hard to choose! I guess I’d have to say going to Disneyworld. I love the rides, the atmosphere, the food, all of it. We even went there on our honeymoon and are fortunate to live by Disneyland for the new few years.

I love making flowers or any kind of shape out of a big mix of patterned papers.

Song: Jars by Chevelle
Movie: Good Will Hunting (I just saw it for the first time a few weeks ago and love it!)
TV show: Fringe (like LOST and X-Files, two of my favorite shows, combined!)

Bookbinding! I took a class in college and haven’t stopped making books since! I don’t really use them for anything, I mostly give them away, but I just loooove making them. Here’s a link to my bookbinding gallery:
