My name is Mary Pat and I am a wife to a fantastic husband (does anyone say they are married to someone terrible?). One of the many reasons I love him is that he totally supports my "need" to scrap. He is more than happy to help out around the house if I need to get some work done! You got to love that! I have two great boys (Jack 5 and Michael 2). They are the light of my life. I never thought raising two boys would be so much fun! I am a high school Spanish teacher. This is my 22nd year. Where does the time go? It seems like this is my 10th year instead.
I have been a crafter ever since i was a little girl. I loved all kinds of crafts and projects. It wasn't until college (in the late 80's) that I started to scrap, but of course there weren't any real scrapping products back then. But I would always buy stickers and decorate my photo albums and write in journaling. I loved it. All my friends always wanted me to do their albums. I was so excited when Creating Keepsakes came about and the hobby "officially" took off. I am so totally addicted. I love pattern paper, and my tools. I must confess I am a pattern paper junkie. My favorite lines right now are Basic Grey and Imaginisce, but there are so many great ones too. I carry around my sketch pad in my purse so that if I get a great idea I can write it down right away. I have even had ideas come in my dreams. I know it sounds really really weird but like I said I am totally addicted.
I am currently on my local scrapbook store's Design Team, and I just love it. We have a lot of fun. My son, Jack loves going in the store and find his pictures! He thinks he is famous. How cute is that? I am really excited to be on this Scrap the Moments Design Team. I am a huge fan of challenge sites. They really motivate me. My goal is to motivate and inspire you. Please feel free to visit my blog [url=http://siehledwithakiss.blogspot.com/]siehledwithakiss[/url] and I would be honored if you signed up to follow me. On my blog I usually go into more detail on how I created the layout etc.
I want to thank Devon for giving my this great opportunity. I can't wait to get started! Thanks for reading!
