Rochester, MN

In grade school, my mother brought me to my first scrapbooking party. Little did she know this would turn into a passion for scrapbooking and preserving all life's little moments. 20 years later and I'm even more passionate about keeping those special family memories preserved and having an easy way to showcase them to friends and family. Photos and scrapbooking become even more important to me after my mom passed when I was 17. These were treasured memories and a way to keep her alive.From a generation that is considered the most photographed, it is also going to have the most photos lost. Many of these photographs won’t survive beyond a year. I can't think of anything more enjoyable than being able to craft and do something I love and am passionate about.
