I am a single, working mom of two beautiful daughters. They are typically the main focus of both my camera lens and scrapbook pages; they provides a great source of inspiration for both. I love, love, love being the mom of two sweet beauties!
Besides digital scrapbooking, I enjoy sewing, machine embroidery, knitting, cross-stitch, needlepoint, and stained glass. I typically have more than one project going on at any given time. (This is an extreme understatement!) I go through cycles with my creative outlets; digital scrapping is the most constant.
I've been scrapbooking for several years and converted to digital scrapping in January 2006 after joining Corel as their Digital Imaging Program Manager. I had to learn Paint Shop Pro; what better way to learn than to start scrapbooking digitally. Honestly, it's one of the most enjoyable artistic outlets that I've ever found. I love the freedom of working digitally--you can crop your photos, mirror them, clean them up, blur the background, change colors; you can use papers (and photos) over and over and over, tear them and paint on them and still have a full, clean sheet to use another day. And there's no mess to clean up when you're done! What can be better than that?
I always like learning something new. I challenge myself by trying new techniques and by trying out some of those product features that I haven't tried previously. Participating in challenges, I find, is also a good way to not only learn something new, but to stretch myself--often in ways that I don't expect.
Currently, besides my exciting position as a CT member for our wonderful ACOT, I am a Natural Babe--a CT member for Natural Designs in Scrapbooking.
