I graduated in college in 2002 with a Liberal Arts degree, now I do math! How does that happen?
I'm very involved in our local Bookcrossing group, the Rubber City Book Posse and I love to read, write and express myself in every way possible.
I just started physically scrapping in June 2008, and it's really cool so far. However, I'd done mixed media art projects, rubber stamping and card making for a few years, thanks to
I used to be a web designer, sports girl, newspaper assistant, bookseller, etc.
I take Wilton Cake Decorating Classes, have partial ownership of a black lab and have even less control of two cats, Max and Peeves. When I grow up, if I absolutely have to, I want to be a writer and live in Disneyland.

Three of my favorite pop culture things, in any order:
-Nightmare Before Christmas
-Batman (anything!)
-Marilyn Monroe

I'm a Winner!!!!

Okay, so I changed my story idea 3 days into the month, ended up not writing for nearly two weeks and finished at the last minute (okay, at 6 o'clock last night), but I did it!!!
I'm a winner of NaNoWriMo for the 4th time! In the six years I've done it, I've been able to finish the first year and then every year in the last three.

So what does it mean? I have a lot of editing to do, but the best part is that it's done and now I can focus on other things (like cardmaking, reading and scrapping)! I found an old scrapbook last night with my great-grandmother's obituary in it. I was able to save most of the clipping and have plans to use it in a layout with a piece of her old jewelry. There's a picture I'm going to ask my mom to make a copy of for the layout, but other than that it's all good. Yay! I'm thinking I might try to crochet (or find) an old doily and use that on the page as well. It'll be a thick page, but definitely meaningful, and that's what is important right now.

So I come out of writing a novel in a month to start working on scrapping. That's a pretty good trade for me. LOL.
