I officially started scrapbooking in 1996 just before my second daughter was born but I’ve been a memory keeper for most of my life.
My interest in design and my passion for photography began in high school when I was editor for my school yearbook. I was one of those nerdy high schoolers who went to yearbook camp.
I’ve always loved hand-made elements, this has translated over the years into a crazy addiction to art journalling. I also practice hand lettering, watercoloring and mixed media.
I enjoy telling stories with my photography, I try to take a photo everyday. I’m kinda addicted to instagram (@engelbelle). Capturing joy is my goal.
Scrapbooking and art journalling make me happy. I’m lucky enough to have a studio where I spend hours practicing and playing. When my daughters moved out I took over one of their bedrooms and turned it into a little photo studio (I said I was a bit addicted).
I also have an on-line learning addiction. On any given day I’m probably enrolled in at least two different on-line courses. I actually ended up meeting the CSM team when we were all enrolled in an iPhone photography course. The rest is history…. Jackie asked my to join the CSM design team in the fall of 2017. I’ve been pinching myself ever since, I feel like I’ve known these gals my whole life. They are my kind of people…selfie taking, marker loving, story tellers.
