Personal life: I am a work-a-holic and have always had a full-time job plus other work on the side. Currently I am teaching at a Canadian school in Shanghai, China and I'm the Fine Arts Department Head and Music and Musical Theatre teacher! My degree is in Jazz and I double-majored on voice and piano. I have a 15 year-old son and a very supportive husband plus two dogs!
Craft life: I started scrapbooking before I knew what scrapbooking really was. The same ol' thing: went to a Creative Memories party and thought I had it all figured out. I made a bunch of crappy albums then went on a 4-5 year hiatus... One day in 2006 a friend invited me to a Stampin' Up! party (some friend!) and that was it, I was hooked! Card-making has been my passion for the past 11 years but mixed media is becoming a pretty huge part of my "artsy" life too.. I just love getting messy!! I enjoy working on design teams for a variety of reasons, but the most unexpected bi-product of serving on a team is the REAL-LIFE friendships that can occur.
Random: I'm your "weird" friend. I laugh loud, make inappropriate jokes, have a "colourful" family and enjoy living on the edge of normal and crazy! I have a bunch of tattoos, a bunch of piercings, very colourful hair, and a funky sense of style. Having said all that, I am quite introverted and won't go out of my way to talk to strangers/people I don't know well, and that sometimes confuses people... But once I get to know you and consider you a friend? There's no going back, baby!!
