Hi, my name is Brenda Hurd and I'm so grateful to be joining the Fancy Pants team for another year. I love scrapbooking and the satisfaction I get from creating something that I know my family will treasure forever, for generations to come. Fancy Pants products are amazing and so versatile to any scrapbooker. I am currently a stay-at-home mom and a full-time student (which has really made my scrapbooking time more precious than ever). I live in Honeyville, Utah - we just moved here 6 months ago and are still trying to fit in. :) But we love our home and the land around it, so it makes up for it all. I have a wonderful husband of 14 years and 3 beautiful kids who are usually the spotlights in my work.
Q: What is your favorite Fancy Pants product?
A: Probably the paper, I LOVE paper, and even if I struggle with the A side, Fancy Pants has always had FABULOUS B sides that are so versatile and I love the distressed feel in most of the lines.
Q: What is your favorite technique?
A: Distressing, distressing and distressing :), I also love misting.
Q: How long have you been scrapbooking?
A: I started when I was about 14, (more than 20 years ago) and haven't stopped since!
Q: If someone was to walk into your scrap room/area right now, what would they find?
A: A really big mess. Now that I seem to have less time to scrapbook because I'm going to school - I hardly ever clean up after myself, I seem to just keep adding project on top of project on top of project - I'm going to start losing things soon.
Q: What do you listen to or watch while scrapbooking?
A: I just recently discovered Pandora (I know I'm late to the game :)) but I love it!
Q: What time of day do you usually scrapbook and where?
A: Like ten o'clock at night - too late. Every once in a while I can grab a few hours during the day, but I'm usually studying then.
Q: What are some other hobbies you enjoy?
A: I love being outdoors and going camping with my family. I also like to cross stitch - even though my latest project is going on 5 years. But i still enjoy it!
Q: Share something quirky about yourself.
A: I never go barefoot. I always have socks or slippers on - even when I wear sandals or flip flops in the summer, I always take a pair of socks with me so I can put them on if I have to take my shoes off.
