A little bit about me!
I am a wife of ONE! a lovely one that makes my life happier everyday!, a mother of TWO! girls that brighten my days at every moment! and a daughter of THREE, Christ, Dad and Mom! and a friend of MANY! I love to share, to love and to have fun, that's why been at home and teaching and sharing with others makes me a happiest girl on earth.
I am also a professional counselors that decided to stay at home with her daughters and do homeschooling. I love everyday, even those crazy days that everyone is asking me for something at the same time, lol! It's just God's blessings that I don't desserve.
How do I start my scrapbooking life?
I started doing scrapbooking back in 2000 when my daughter was born. I have been a photography lover since I was a kid, then I discovered the wonderful Scrapbooking World! Oh wow! what a great way to preserve the treasures of your heart, right? I was sooooo in love that I was spending LOTS of money in this craziness, lol. In an effort to save money DH found out about Leaving Prints and I joined the company right away. Been an instructor helps me in two different ways, saving money and sharing with others what God gives me, my talent! Sadly the company closed their doors and I joined The Angel Company! Thanks to my good friend Rosalyn that introduced me to TAC. I just love the versatility of the stamps so I just have to get in. I can tell you that TAC has been a blessing in my life, I love it sooo very much!
My passion to teach and share
My passion to share with others everything about this wonderful hobby lead me to take more action about it, so I started doing demos and classes and later I was contact by Jennifer, Memory Lane's (a LSS here in San Juan, PR) owner, and I start offering classes there at her store! What a great adventure for me. I met a lot of great and talented people there, sadly she had to close the store and I went back to do my classes at home in my studio. Even with a smaller space I keep this as a way to share my passion. I love to teach and some of the class that I offer are: An album in a day classes, Stamping, Coloring with Copic Markers, Cardmaking, Papercraft projects such as party favors, boxes and baskets at my Stamp Camps and also I love to teach Mini Albums classes! I also teach Tool Classes such as: Scor Pal, Bind it All, DieCut Mahcines as the Bigshot, Cricut and Cuttlebug! Right now I am in love with some tools that I use everyday: Copic Markers, Scor Pal, Bind it All, Cuttlebug, my Pink E and the Make the Cut program wich I am going to add to my classes too! Last but not least in January 2008 I was invited to "Entre Nosotras" a local TV show to show a little bit about what I do. I shared different projects you can do as treat for different ocassions, you can check the projects I shared here.
