Meet Groovy Chick Michelle!
I would love to introduce our newest Groovy Chick to you today :) This is Michelle!
Lets take a peek into her world...
Hi! I'm Michelle! I grew up surrounded with some type of crafting: sewing, recycled kids crafts, cross-stitching, painting, jewelery and that's just a start of the list. I got into scrapbooking after I took a class at a Local Scrap Store. My picture stash had photos of travels with boyfriend(now husband) and my bridal shower. Well, of course we scrappers know there are so may more events that will follow a bridal shower that feed the addiction to scrapping. So, to date the key players in my scrapping are: my husband, Gerry; my 4 year old daughter, Rebecca(Becky); my 1 year old son, Lucas(Luke) and our dogs, Bailey and Skipper "the boys."
We live "at the shore" in New Jersey and there is usually some type of sound exiting our active home. Music mostly; Country genre or my 4 year olds newest song she has came up with!
So, I have been scrapping for about 6 years. Started card making about 2 years ago and made it a goal to make every card I give or use the stash I have from doing card swaps with scrappy friends. My style seems to vary on my favorite new techniques that just stick. So, I love distressing and inking. I have grown to love Challenges, which I used to shy way from! I find I get more focused and completely finish a project that is a challenge. I enjoy cooking and baking on occasion, history and traveling, camping and hiking, relaxing outdoors, reading and recently the search of my genealogy. I have been working on a scrap area/place/space/room of my own but it includes the home computer and a guest bed. So my space always is shifting or used for those "items with no true place to call home".... I am very excited to be a Groovy Chick for If It's Groovy. Look forward to creating and getting inspiration from being a part of the Design Team.I started a blog this year. So, stop by and follow at http://scrapbookingsos.blogspot.com
