Growing up, I wasn’t crafty at all. I was the girl who took Art because I needed the credit and there wasn’t anything else to take. Same with Home Ec. In fact, if they had a category for ‘Most Likely To NOT Be Crafty’ my senior year, I feel sure that I would have won! No one was more surprised than me when I started sewing, painting and finally paper crafting.
Over the years, I’ve dabbled in several crafts. I’ve sewn, made jewelry and even tried cross stitch. Of course, as usual, I came to scrapbooking late. My daughter’s senior year, a friend and I decided we wanted to make a scrapbook for our kids’ graduation parties. We teamed up with another couple of friends who were scrapbookers, to get started. I didn’t even go along to purchase my first supplies. I just let my friends pick up what they thought were necessities, wrote a check and showed up to have my first introduction to paper crafting. Well, little did I know that I was going to find my perfect fit! I loved that I was getting pictures in books, telling the story of my daughter’s senior year and doing a hobby that I loved. That one senior book turned into 3 books, my son’s senior book, Eagle Scout books and a whole lot more.
When it comes to style, I find it hard to describe mine. You are just as likely to see bright colors as well as muted colors on pages. One thing that stays consistent is my love for embellishments. I’m pretty sure that I’ve never met an embellishment that I didn’t like. I probably love ribbon and flowers the most. In fact, you will rarely see one of my pages without a ribbon or bow somewhere. I would put flowers on everything, too but my son prefers his pages without them.
I’ve been married for 26 years to a wonderful guy and we were blessed with 2 children. Our daughter is 25 and our son is 23. I was very lucky to be able to be a stay at home mom. I might have been a bit late to the party, but the timing was perfect for me. Scrapbooking is a wonderful hobby that allows me to be creative and helps keep me busy now that our children no longer live at home. My skill set has definitely improved over the years, but I still love to look back at those first pages. They might be really simple and wouldn’t win any design contests, but each page tells a tiny bit of our story.
We are so excited to have Robbie as a member of our new 3 Birds Design Team. Thank you for flying by today and every day this week, as we have introduced our new Design Team. Stay tuned next week as we being sharing some sneak peeks of our new collection!
