How long have you been designing and how did you get into it?
I’ve been designing since 2008. I was just learning to scrap, and I was really interested in learning how to make the things I was using.
Are you a “neat freak” or a “messy”?
I am somewhere in between! I hate clutter, but sometimes it just creeps up on me when I’m busy.
What’s on your desk?
Oh, my gosh…too much! My computer, of course, and my scanner and printer. I have a box for my burned DVDs of scrap kits I’ve created, about 20 scrapbooking and Photoshop magazines, photos of my kids, a little owl glasses holder, vitamins, a watermelon candle, and a jar of pens. Oh! And an angel that my kids bought for me.
Where do you call home?
I live in the southern United States in a rural town in Georgia.
What is your strength as a designer?
I think my strength is connecting to emotions, whether it’s loss, love, hope, etc. I find that not a lot of designers create kits that can help you scrap the less happy moments in life. I try to help my customers use scrapping as a catharsis.
What famous location would you like to visit?
Ireland! I have no famous landmark that I particularly want to see because I just want to see it all!
