I am a mother. I am a wife. I am a sister, a daughter, an aunt, a cousin.
I am a scrapbooker.
I have always been artistic, it just took me a while to find my outlet. I sew, needlepoint, and draw. I also enjoy cooking and baking. I have dabbled in scrapbooking since high school by adding memorabilia to my pictures, but something was still missing.
I found modern scrapbooking after our first daughter was born and I have not looked back. I really do hope that someday, my children look at my scrapbooks and really get who I am and how much I love them. Within the last few years, I've been introduced to mixed media and well, the world will never be the same.
My husband of 12 years and I have two sweet little girls, aged 9 and 3. They are funny, sassy, sometimes naughty, silly, gorgeous, loving, bright, often cheerful, diva-esque little princesses, and they are the lights of my life. I am lucky to be married to my best friend; I swear, I love him more every day. In real life, I am a portrait and wedding photographer, but my true loves are all at home. :)

Twisted Sketches #152

This week's Twisted sketch can be found here. In honor of Mother's Day, the twist is "Mother;" any way, any how! I chose a few pictures of me and my mom from my first birthday. We're in the front seat of the car, parked in the Bill Knapp's parking lot. You other mid-westerners will remember Bill Knapp's; we must have had dozens of family birthday parties there while I was growing up! I love these papers for the photos; so simple, and somehow so vintage. I was so happy to find a color scheme that really suited these late 70s photos (pretend you didn't hear that I just dated myself, mm'kay?) And omgosh, I love love love these corrugated alphabets from sei!!
