Most readers don’t know this about me:   I Scrapbook on my bed. Yep, I make all my pages on my bed. I used to haul everything back and forth to the dining room table. Now, all of my scrappy supplies are within arm's reach and I don't have to run back and forth. This also forces me to clean up after Scrapping.

Bio:  I was inspired to start Scrapping in 2005 while my husband was deployed. His friend was posting a log of pictures from the deployment and I felt like those needed to be documented. I quit Scrapping in 2010 because we moved to a small house and I became pregnant with my 3rd (so, I had 3 kids under 5 years old at that time). We moved to a bigger house last year so I have room to scrap now. I was out of the scrapbooking loop for years so I'm catching up on things like pastes, painting, stenciling, misting, etc.

I have been married for 12 years to my hubs, Kevin. We have three children, Jacen (11), Kylie (8) and Logan (almost 6). We recently became pet owners last July. My daughter had been begging for a dog for her birthday. I found Blue (AKA Mr. Pickles) online. He was a homeless doggie, now he's not. I have been a stay at home mom for the past 6 years. I am open to going back to work one day.
