My Story

In 2004, when my son was seven years old and I was at a craft store, I wandered up and down scrapbooking isles. Scrapbooking was in its heyday and very popular at the time and I was intrigued. I excitedly bought a bunch of stuff and came home. But when I got home, I became overwhelmed and realized I had no idea what I was doing - the scrapbook pages I had seen were incredible - and I knew I didn’t have those skills. Feeling defeated, I returned everything back to the store! 

 But the next year, as my son was entering such fun and important parts of his life, I knew I wanted to document those years so he would have those treasured moments for many years to come. So, I decided to learn more about scrapbooking. While I was still impressed with the beautiful and sometimes intricate pages, what I learned is that it's about so much more. It's about documenting the everyday along with the special moments. With that in mind I became passionate about documenting all elements of my family's life. All these years later, those early scrapbooks are still treasured memories. 

Now, as my son is an adult and I have much more time to pursue my own interests, I’ve grown to love card-making, making paper treats and gifts, and home d├ęcor. Paper crafting is a true joy. My hope with this blog is to connect with other crafters, so please feel free to contact me or leave a comment. 

I mostly use Stampin' Up products and am an Independent Stampin' Up Demonstrator. However, as I am employed full time, I consider myself a hobby demonstrator and am not, at this time in my life, trying to grow a business. If you are interested in these products, please feel free to reach out to me and I am happy to help guide you to the fabulous people in my RemARKable Stampin' Up team who do have this as their full time business. 

My passion is capturing moments, documenting them, and sharing them through paper crafting. I appreciate you taking a moment to learn about me and I hope you capture your moments today!
