My Photo


I'm a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, and a breast cancer survivor. I work, I teach, I scrap, I play!

As a previous scrapbook store owner and mother of 2 girls, I've been "creating" for over 22 years. I called Bazzill Basics Paper my "home away from home" for 11 years, until it was acquired by American Crafts in 2014. Thankfully, I have been able to continue to do what I love working for American Crafts. My inspiration comes from an interest in photography, home decor and home improvement, infusing my own personal style into every project I create. I see myself as a "simple scrapbooker", sharing the stories of those who live in my photos.


scrapbooking & paper crafting, traveling, camping and outdoor life, family time with my girls, playing a friendly game of poker with friends, a good sushi restaurant, going to the movies, entertaining friends and family in my home.
