I knew I was addicted to scrapbooking after completing my first Week in the Life project in 2010. Taking a photo journalistic approach to memory keeping, my motto for the hobby is to: “document her family life adventures, big & small”. I love paying attention to the life’s details via heart felt journaling as well as using divided page protectors, traveler’s notebooks and hybrid elements in my layouts.
I have been on a variety of creative teams including Simple Scrapper (2011-2013); Becky Higgins Project Life CT (2014); Ali Edwards Creative Team (2017-present) and Elle’s Studio Design Team (2018-present). I have taught online at Big Picture Classes (2015-2016), in various scrapbook stores across Ontario and from time to time, I interview other memory keepers on my podcast, Pocket Talk. I especially love connecting with fellow scrapbookers in person at the Crop & Create events and have done so since 2016.
When I am not getting crafty or making memories with my husband and two kiddos, Rowan and Sam in the Beaches neighbourhood of Toronto, ON, you can find me listening to podcasts, running or drinking too much coffee.
