My Resume



Objective:

To just have fun and enjoy the process of creating! I feel there is no right or wrong way to create art. I just do whatever I like. But the one thing I do not change is using meaningful photos and journaling on my projects; even if it's just a few sentences...


Background:

I am a wife and a mom of a 8-year-old boy. I live in Maryland with my son, husband, Pete, and 2 kitties (Jessica and Toby. Currently, I work for a credit union, 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. When I'm not working, I can be found at home playing with my son and at night, when he's asleep, I scrap! I'd like to say I am more of a simple/journalist scrapper, but I tend to do a variety of different things. I love creating layouts which include stamping and mixed media, mini albums, pocket pages and even planners.

I began scrapbooking in January 2002, but I didn't really get serious about the hobby or discover the online communities until August 2006. I remember when my mom asked me to go to a Creative Memories party with her. I laughed at her, telling her no way am I going to sit at a table of older people and scrap. I was young and stupid. LOL. I told her I was not creative enough... But by the time I left that party, I had my first album, cardstock in several colors, pens, trimmer, scissors, stickers and several triangle cardstock shapes! LOL. Those were the days! Little did I know how addicting scrapbooking can be. I totally love this hobby. It makes me happy to create projects for my family members and it's my therapy!


What makes me an asset on a design team?

I am dependable, reliable, and I can work under a tight deadline. I like to work ahead of schedule and I usually have my assignments completed a few weeks early. Scrap members can expect to see different styles and designs from me with instructions on how to use new techniques on their layouts. Although I am a simple scrap-booker, my layouts are clean, simple, but attractive. I take great pride in my work therefore, I produce quality projects. I enjoy telling a story with most of my layouts.
