About Me

Frankfort, Ohio, United States
I'm 26 years old, married and a mother of 1. I met my husband Brian in college where we both received education in Mortuary Science. We were married in 2007. We have a little girl, Katterli Rayne who suffered a pediatric stroke at birth and two subsequent seizures. I have a younger sister, Jessica, who has Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome. I love to scrapbook, watch tv and movies, listen to rock music and read. I enjoy traveling, especially to my hometown, Baltimore MD!

Katterli's Scrapbook

Labor & Delivery
Originally uploaded by Jen, A Scrapper
This is one of the first pages in my daughters scrapbook. I used a patterned paper that came with the book. I used a MyPagesTalk box to record her first cry after birth, it's attached with some heavy adhesive and covered with some cardstock, I made sure to punch out holes for the speaker and sound buttons.

My Scrapbooking Storage

So, I've been doing a lot of reading about scrapbooking rooms. I find myself really wanting a space to be creative in. At the moment my work is done on the floor in my master bedroom. With a 13 month old toddler it's hard to find time to scrapbook, let alone a place that I can turn into a craft space. So, for now, here's what I work with.
I know it's not the ideal but as long as we are productive, why does our work or storage space matter? I'm sure that with more space I can be even more productive, but any space is doable. I just have to keep telling myself that!!!
