Hello! My name is Natalie Dill and I'm from Nashville, Tennessee. I am a wife, a full-time federal employee, and a mom of two boys and two pups. I love to travel, camp, eat, read, host parties, and craft! I have been scrapbooking for almost 25 years. I create in many sizes including 12x12, pockets, Life-Crafted, and memory planning. I also use my crafty powers to dabble in plants, home decor, and embroidery.
