Thank you for taking the time to review my Resume/Publication list.
I keep this list updated with my most current design team positions, publications and other creative work. Some items for publication may not be listed, as they are pending dates/pages.
I have been a paper crafter since April 2004. It has become my one true passion.
I am also a wife, and stay at home mother to 3 amazing children. This allows me the best of both worlds. To be home with my children, and explore my creative venture’s during my free time.
Prior to being a stay at home mother, I was a nurse for several years, working in a wide range of areas, such as Sub-Acute, Hospice, Alzheimer’s/Dementia, Long Term care, Assisted Living and Home care. This helped me develope great organizational skills, and time management, amongst many other useful life related skills.
I am a perfectionst, very motivated and passionate about pursuing my goals. I am always open to new idea’s, and challenge’s. I am versatile, and am able to execute any task put before me.
My style continue’s to evolve, as time, and trends do. I offer a fresh approach to design, and have my own flair for viewing things in a new way.
My projects are clean, detailed, and always professional.
Please contact me with any questions.
I am always open to new ideas, products, and design work.
In January 2010 I will be launching my very own online store! It is called My Time Made Easy © LLC We will be offering an amazing line of easy to assemble gift packaging, acrylic stamps and coordinating digital papers!!
I had previously had my own line of printable templates for gift packaging through Papertrey Ink, called My Timeless Templates©. They were creeated from October 2008 to November 2009. There I have released over 25 templates.
