Erin is a stay at home mom, she was a teacher (high school science) before I stayed at home, and her love for scrapbooking brought her to us here at Gecko Galz!!
Erins first love is her family, they mean everything to her and she finds they inspire her paper crafting projects. Her second love is crafting, especially scrapbooking and she started to scrapbook in 2006 when her oldest child was 10 months old (everyone needs a muse and our children are the best muses of all). So she started to dabble doing a few pages here and there for his baby book, but nothing serious. Then a family loss drove her to focus her energies in the scrapbooking direction, it was her way of dealing with the tragedy, and as we all know it is far more theriputic than a shrink. She created a haven for herself by making a permanent scrap room in my house, and then she started to teach classes at a local scrapbook store, then at her house, and now at her local Michaels and Jo Ann’s stores too.
Erin would say mher favorite types of layouts are shabby chic, distressed, and elegant styles , but she also like to make clean layouts, fun ones that are cute and kid-ish with fun elements like clouds and animals on them. She loves to work with flowers, lace, ribbon, ink, paint, mists, chipboard, plus anything else she can get my hands on. thus she has never met a scrapbook product that she did not like, and she is always on the lookout for other fun techniques and products that she can learn and pass along to others. Scrapping is her hobby turned into a little career for her since now she is a stay at home mom.
