About Me

Hi! I'm Mindy and I live in Sitka, Alaska. I'm originally from Massachusetts, and have also lived in Maine and Florida, in addition to Alaska where I've been for almost 20 years. I'll be 40 in April. I've been married to my DH for 17 years and we have one child, a 13 year old daughter who is the object of 99% of my scrapping. I began scrapbooking in 1993 and its become an addiction.

My birthday is April 13, 1967
My Anniversary is December 30, 1989
Husband: Jon
Kids: a daughter, Bethany Storme, who will be graduating high school in May of 2012

I have many scrappy projects in the works. I don't really work on one theme until done, I just do what ever inspires me at the moment. I'm almost done with my wedding album (about 3 or 4 more layouts to go), I'm in the midst of our Disney World 2006 Vacation album. Other types of layouts I'm doing or will be doing: camping, Halloween, Christmas, Easter, Birthdays (from 1 - 13 years), baby book (I've done some, but lots more to do), all school (kindergarten through 7th grade), Mexico vacations, and probably a lot more that I'm just not thinking of right now. .. oh yeah, sports, especially softball and karate.
