A girlfriend introduced me to scrapbooking in late 2001 and that was the beginning of an awesome creative journey that hasn't slowed down! It was quite a revelation at the time since I didn't think I had a creative bone in my body - I never excelled at art in school and my career had always been accounting/bookkeeping/tax.
I have to say that the novelty of being creative still hasn't worn off and I get so jazzed when I am inspired which is why I only hope I can inspire others.
I enjoy life in northern California with my husband and four children and I can usually be found in my creative space (aka, "at the computer"!)
UPDATE: After 7 years of paper scrapbooking, I tried digital scrapbooking in Feb '09. And I haven't looked back!
