Hi, welcome to Scrap 'N Dream the home of "Simply A Scrappin Escape". I hope you will be able to join me at one of the many events that I offer to you the scrapbooker and crafter. I love scrapbooking and enjoy the weekends away to teach, scrapbook and meet old and new friends. Scrapbooking is my ultimate passion!!
I am a mother of 2 grown girls and the grandmother of 3 (1 girl and 2 boys) so I have a lot of pictures to make family scrapbooks to keep me busy. I also have and continue to travel the world which gives me much more to scrapbook. I have completed over 200 albums (mostly 12 X 12) and over 100 projects from frames, to shadow boxes to acrylic albums and everything in between.
I am a freelance designer and writer. I wrote for Chicagoland Scrapbooker Magazine but unfortuanetly it has ceased publication.. I had the privilage of writing several feature articles and the "Just Ask CS" column.
I have taught scrapbooking classes across the country for various scrapbook conventions including "Camp Memory Makers" for Memory Makers Magazine, Scrappers ER, Midwest Scrapbooking and many others.
I own Scrap 'N Dream which hosts "Simply A Scrappin Escape" hotel weekend retreats. I also host "Scrapbook Extravaganzas" which include a day of exclusively designed classes and a crop. And to round out my passion for scrapbooking and shopping I host fun filled weekend bus trips to SHOP!CROP!DROP! for those who want adventure.
I am also very active in fundraising events for my daughter and grandson's school and spend some very enjoyable days helping the students with projects.
I look forward to meeting you soon at a scrapbook event.
