I teach high school art and have no children, although we would love to have a child. Married to my hubby for 30 years, this July. We recently lost our beautiful Golden Doodle pup named Paisley, at 13.5 years...it is never enough time. :( In some of my spare time, I'm a Mary Kay consultant, been doing that since I got out of college and got addicted to the products. My husband and I like to travel, go to movies, and go out boating on the lake near our home. We are both also very involved with music, singing in church choir, playing instruments, and going to the symphony. I scrapbook on 12x12 albums, and I like to try new things. I have been into digital scrapping lately, as I quickly became addicted to the ease of manipulating my layouts! However, I will always be a paper scrapper at heart. I use mostly patterned paper (all kinds!), cardstock, stickers, rub-ons and quotations/phrases, as well as metal. Don't mind slightly lumpy albums, but not too thick, because I take tons of photos and each album is full with pages!
My favorite embellishments are washi tape, chipboard and rub-ons. I love to use brads and shaped buttons. My favorite types of stickers are realistic ones with the layered look,NOT the cute, cartoonish kind. I like the look of texture without the thickness of lumpy. Favorite things I don't buy for myself are Jolee's, and K & Co. embossed stickers, and flowers of all kinds. I really like all of the Basic Grey stuff (sadly, they are no longer, but I hoard them!), as well as the new My Mind's Eye collections. Bo Bunny and We R Memory Keepers are also right up my alley. Have an original sizzix and a sidekick and don't have many dies. I have a paw print, dog dish and bone, music notes, filmstrip frame, oval tags and regular tags, photo corners, primitive hearts, primitive stars, and I have a few of the embossing ones: music note, paisley, Christmas lights, and paw print. Would love any versatile dies. I really love fabric-looking items with adhesive already on them. Colors I prefer are jewel tones and neutrals. I dislike fluorescents and I don't use alot of straight primaries. I don't have any children, so I don't tend to use much cutesy stuff. I would categorize my style as clean, classic, artistic.
Pages I will be scrapping in the future include dog pages, Christmas, family gatherings, vacations, and general family. 11/3/2020
