Featured Artist on Gems by Jerri

Yesterday I was the featured artist on a fellow etsian's blog, Gems by Jerri. It was a fun featured that not only showed off some of my work but also allowed me to answer a few questions about myself and why I love scrapbooking so much.

Here's a sample of my interview:
What is your favorite item in your shop?
My favorite item right now is "our little LADYbug". It's a 2 page 12x12 scrapbooking layout that was inspired by a little girl that came into the photo studio that I work at. She was so cute and was wearing a ladybug outfit. As soon as I saw it, I knew that I needed to make a ladybug layout.

Tell me a little about you and your background in crafting?
I'm a stay at home wife that works part time at a local photography studio. My husband and I built our dream home about 2 years ago on a lake in SW Missouri. I claimed the bonus room over the garage as my studio and spend most of my time in it. I guess that I inherited my love of crafting from my mom. We made crafts every Christmas when I was growing up. Homemade ornaments, plastic canvas items, flowered swags, and even quilts. My love for scrapbooking began in the 8th grade and was reintroduced to it in the late 90's. Scrapbooking has now snowballed into a huge part of my life.

Have a creative day!

Featured on my Handmade Registry

Wow! This morning I woke up and did my usual routine of checking my email, ScrapBiz, Facebook, and of course my Etsy store. Imagine the joy that I felt when waiting for me was a convo. (For those of you not familar with Etsy, a convo is like an email that you receive through Etsy)
Excitedly I clicked on the convo and was surprised to learn that one of my listings has been featured on the front page of my Handemade Registry! Wow!
Have you seen this site before? It's way cool. Working like a gift registry at Macy's, JC Penney, or even target, you can choose all things handmade from various Etsy artists and actually register for your wedding, baby shower, even your birthday here. Then just let your loved ones know where you're registered and voila, you get all the handmade goodies you like! Well, that is, only if they purchase them. It's not exactly magic, but pretty darn close!
I encourage you to check it out today!
