About Me

Hi. My name is Melissa and I'm a wife of 24 years and a mom to a boy and a girl.

Derek is 22 and is in his last semester of college at Texas A&M International University. Michaela (Micki) is 19 and is also at TAMIU, just started her sophomore year.

My husband Chad and I are both Federal workers - he works harder and longer than I do. :) We moved to a border city in Texas about 10 years ago for his job. We are from Oregon, so it has been a big adjustment and change for all of us - especially the kids.

We love our animals - we have 2 boy dogs - our Beagle Clue is 13 years old and our Golden Retriever Jax is 7. We have a Persian girl kitty named Jazmin(Jazzy)(10).

Our interests have changed this year from boating activities to rv-ing, as we just bought our first travel trailer. We love weekend getaways, going to the coast/beach regularly. We do a lot of house and home improvement projects.

In addition to scrapbooking, I like reading, quilting, sewing, machine embroidery, dollhouse miniatures. I even dabble a little in knitting, beading, painting - no craft projects are off limits for me. I am involved in church activities with small groups and children's ministries for the 3 and 4 year olds.

As far as scrapbooking projects and layouts - I have many many years to "catch up" on. I'm pretty much done with my kids' baby and toddler years, but have many school pictures, holidays, vacations, etc. to still scrap. 4th of july is probably my favorite holiday to scrap, but I like them all. I still have a Gulf Coast trip, Grand Canyon pics, Camping pics, family reunion pics, 3 cruise vacations, a Tennessee trip and lots of trips back home to Oregon to scrap as far as vacations go.

I still have my son's graduation pics from 2013 to scrap (orange and white colors), and now my daughter's as well.
