about me

here’s everything you could possibly want to know about me. . . or at least what i’m willing to post on a public blog. LOL! -first thing i have a dorky since of humor, and you’ll likely see evidence of that all over this blog :)



married: yep, 3 years and counting
kids: none, but i love my niece & nephew to pieces.
i live: in southern california and i love the fact that i’m never too far from the beach.

i'm just a regular girl (or just an average scrapper-if you will :) who loves crafts. i've been scrapbooking since i was 18. i recently started cardmaking, and it has become my hobby of choice. although i do want to get back into scrapping more. i used to be a 12x12 scrapper, i think when i go back i'm going to do 8x8 books, since i've gotten used to working on a smaller scale. none of my friends are as into scrapping as i am, so i love checking out other scrappers blogs and getting to know people who love this hobby as much as i do :)

scrappy favs
brands: basic grey, cosmo cricket,sassafras lass, hero arts, making memories, martha stewart, october afternoon, k&co, echo park and american crafts.
embellishments: rhinestones, ribbon, & flowers
paper: basic grey, cosmo cricket, october afternoon, echo park
tools: fiskars, making memories
stamps: hero arts, inkadinkado, the cats pajamas, lawn fawn

making cards & scrapbooks (though i’ve been making a lot more cards than scrapbook pages lately because i haven’t been taking as many pics),
reading- (fav books: the notebook, the wedding, a walk to remember-can you tell i love nicolas sparks?-the entire confessions of a shopaholic series, the twilite saga-TEAM EDWARD, and just about every john grisham novel you can name)
listening to music
watching movies (i have too many fav movies to even start listing them)

random facts & all my little quirks
i dream of. . .
having my own scrapbooking line someday.

you may have noticed. . .
i don’t capitalize words. it’s one of my quirks. it started literally when i was in second grade, i turned in a homework assignment like that and my teacher made me fix it. but i’m grown now, and it’s my blog so everything can be lower case if i want!

fav tv shows. . .
the game, sister sister, i love lucy, the cosby show, community, & the office, because i LOVE jim & pam. they are so cute together.  i love my husband because i have watched the casino episode (season 2 finale where jim finally tells pam he loves her) a million times on netflix, and he never complains.

fav color. . .
pink. like the magenta & hot pink shades. i like bold bright colors, and i loathe pastels. yet oddly enough when making cards i reach for yellow and orange more than pink. . . go figure
