about me

I am a full time stay at home mom to four boys, although I tend to spend very little time actually staying at home. My “little” boys are less and less little every day: Gareth is in 8th grade, Owen 5th, and Reece is now in 4rd. Tennyson, my spunky little 5 year old is now in kindergarten too, and for the first time in my life, I have the days to myself with all of my kids at school!!  They may be growing but they are definitely still keeping me hopping – in this case hoping tends to mean running late for some sort of practice or appointment, trying to keep up with the mess, trying to negotiate brother peace treaties, and then figuring out where to fit everything else in there too.

Although I have been crafting as long as I can remember, I only took the leap into paper scrapbooking in 2004 and then digi scrapping not long after,  for me it really was a perfect fit. A lot of days scrapping is that one thread that keeps me sane, it is nice to be able to sit down in the middle of a chaotic house filled with my crazy little men, and just create something beautiful. Even if the dishes are piled up, there is mud tracked throughout the house, or the boys are shouting so loud I can’t hear myself think, at least there is something that is completely mine and 100% mud free.

In 2006, I decided to make my art my own little career and now I create digital scrapbooking supplies that others can use to create their own beauty and sanity in this crazy world. I am really proud to be selling at Sweet Shoppe Designs, the best place ever to be, and it is such an honor to me to play a part in preserving the precious memories of digiscrappers everywhere. I’m so pleased that you have come here to my little bloggy hopefully I can amuse you, inspire you, and from time to time perhaps you can even learn something too.
