About Me

Birthday - May 14, 1952

Who I am. . . .
I am a crafter, but scrapbooking is my love. Even all those crocheted afghans will wear down, hopefully my legacy will be leaving my photos in albums for many years after I'm gone. I am the mom of the best son (don't we all say that?) who has more education than I do - he's now finished his masters in IT business from Penn State, and has a bachelor's from Long Island University/Southampton in Psychobiology and Marine biology. I am an X-ray technician but am now retired from that as well as retired from the PA gov't in Child Support since the spring of 2018. I'm now also the proud Grandmother of Neo born in May, 2022.

About scrapping:
I have been scrapping since 1996, when my mother passed away (12/1995) with the idea I would just make two albums, one for each of my siblings since I had all our family pictures and wanted to pass theirs on to them. Well... then my son went to college - needed a college album, right? Then I went to my own photos, and next thing you know I had 30+ albums. I bought a book case when I moved to a new home by a lake that I decided I'd retire at. A flood from tropical storm Lee swept into my home, taking everything including photos, and the finished albums. I went about replacing from other family members as many photos as I could.. and now as my son says "how does one accumulate all this after losing it?" Persistance.

I love paper scrapping but I have dabbled in both hybrid and digital. I am not fond of card making but manage christmas cards each year, and I do Journal Your Christmas mini books each December. I am trying to do more ink work, but I'm OCD, and hate making the ink mess. I feel there's enough companies doing the paper designs for me.

Nowadays I scrap my surviving family photos (they were on a high shelf in the flood), Christmas photos, and whatever the family sends me to "add to the book" since we are a family half in Los Angeles and half in PA. I scrap at home almost daily, or at least organize my supplies. I'm a fan of ACOT and shop nowhere else unless it's not sold here. But this is now a second family, most of whom I've never met.
