I have been married much longer than many of you have been alive! (Insert Big Grin) My children are my furbabies and my pondbabies. Currently we have Matches the cat who is 14, Shadow and Metoo who are 3 year old poodle mixes and too many fish to count. Until I got sidelined by Inflammatory Breast Cancer, I worked full time for 32 years as a registered nurse in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Now I guess you could call me a SAHM.

I have done many different crafts over the years and started teaching craftwork in Grade 7 at the Optimist Boy's and Girl's Club. I started my first real scrapbook about 20 years ago. Yes I still have it. It is pretty basic though as scrapbooking really hadn't developed in those days.

I guess you could say that my scrapbooking style is eclectic. I often include homemade embellishments - quilling, tea bag folding, items made with UTEE, sewing, cross-stitch, crocheting. I like my pages to be unique. Following a sketched design is not my style, I prefer to develop my own pages as I go along. I start by looking at the colours in the photographs and go from there. Experimenting with different techniques really does interest me and you will find that I add a lot of links to different techniques on the Nook forum.

Being asked to be the Technique Co-ordinator for the Nook is the perfect role for me. I hope to inspire everyone to step outside the box and try some new things. Stay tuned for some make and takes at the store and possibly some longer classes.

I have taken the Copic Marker certification class, got totally hooked on these markers and spend a lot of time making cards and tags. Stamping has always been an interest of mine and I find that a lot of my cards have either House Mouse stamps or Stampscape scenery stamps. Our twice a month Copic Club has been lots of fun sharing techniques and new ideas.
