I love to scrap, make cards, quilt, read and bake. I started sewing when I was 10 years old, and took to it like a duck to water. I mostly did garments, but began quilting at 22 and haven't looked back since. Scrapping, stamping and cardmaking came later, after graduate school. A neighbor asked me to several parties (CTMH, SU, and Creative Memories) and I was hooked. I also do a lot of digital scrapping.
I'm spoiled rotten by a husband who does most of the cooking and grocery shopping. We have two sons, Matthew (7) and Jeremy (5 1/2), a Labrador retriever (Ribby), and a guard cat (Nollie). We are nuts about baseball (Red Sox) and DisneyWorld.
Lately I haven't had much creative time. I started back to work, part-time, in mid-December. I am a medical writer, and review data on new medications and then write up reports and other documents for FDA submission. I am trying to find a balance between work, the kids, home duties, and creative time - it'll probably take a few more months for me to have a new routine down. So my apologies in advance if I'm not as active in the next month or so as I'd like to be!
I spent about 2 years as an editor for ScrapStreet Magazine, and am still an administrator for the site. It is a free e-zine, with a Cards column and lots of other sections on scrapping, altered items, and digital techniques. I've been really impressed by all your creations and creativity so far. Be prepared to have me
Thank you so much for letting me be part of this group!
