How long have you been designing and how did you get into it?
Oh my gosh, it seems like forever! I started designing freebies back when the boys were about two years old. I did that for about a year, then I started at Scrap Girls as a layout designer. Within the year, I started designing products in January 2006.
What’s your favorite part of the day?
I’m a morning person, up about 3:30 or 4:00 a.m. on most days. I get together with a friend about 5:00 and walk for an hour, then I start working.
PC vs. Mac?
I’m a PC, but man, how I drool over the Macs! Maybe someday I’ll switch over.
Neat Freak vs. Messy?
For sure, I’m a neat freak, but I’m the only one in my house who is. I spend my days picking up after everyone (and probably driving them crazy by doing so!).
What’s on your desk?
About five External Hard Drives (EHDs) — (Yes, I have back-ups of back-ups of back-ups!). I also have a folder full of notes, a printed calendar that I live off of, a notebook and sticky notes for notewriting, a cup of pens, a charger for my phone, a cup of water, and a little bowl that Colby made about six years ago that holds paper clips.
Where do you call home?
I was born and raised in Lawson, Missouri, a little town north of Kansas City. After graduation, I spent a couple of years in Springfield, Missouri, then moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, for three years for work. I was transferred to Lincoln, Nebraska, then Wichita, Kansas. After that, I moved to California and got married. We became parents to our twin boys and moved back to Lawson when they were a year old.
