About Me

I'm a scrapbooker, quilter, and all around crafty dabbler living in Northern California with my husband of seventeen years, a teen, a tween, and a guinea pig named Bean. 

I started scrapbooking in 2005. My first page was about my oldest daughter’s 2nd birthday, complete with plain cardstock background, photos cut in shapes and sticker sneeze! My style isn’t clean and simple nor artsy messy, it’s somewhere in between. I don’t like to be hedged into a particular trend or color scheme, but a few things are fairly consistent. I like layers and clusters, but not so many that they overpower the photos. Layouts need texture with a little mixed media, cut files, twine, or stitching. The finishing touch is a sprinkling of little bits like ink splatters, enamel dots, sequins, or even on occasion some brads (which I still keep because they are so cute). Oh and also, I use clouds a lot.

My first quilt was a Sunbonnet Sue wallhanging in 1998 that is still one of the only quilts I own, since most of them have been gifts or auctioned off for charity.  My primary focus for several years was fandom quilts which I made both with a group, and on my own.  I love bright modern colors and whimsical patterns, and I'm slightly addicted to paper piecing.
