Tell Us About Your Family:

I’ve been married to my husband for 16 years. We have 4 amazing children ages 14, 12, 7, and 3. My husband and I were born and raised in Utah, but now reside on a little island in Alaska called “Sitka”. We make a great team together and enjoy DIY projects, cooking, sports, planning and doing fun activities together, exploring, being active in our church and community, and just being around each other!

How long have you been designing?

I started dabbling around in digital scrapbooking in 2007, and was designing my own kits and templates by 2008.

What program(s) do you use?

PS CC/ Illustrator

If you’re running low on design mojo, where do you go to kickstart your creativity?

Mostly the internet. Also from commercials, T.V., signs, books, stores, and everyday life. Luckily, I can find creative inspiration in nearly everything.  I just have to make sure I keep a notepad close by, or I won’t remember because I get sidetracked VERY easily.

What has been the greatest compliment you have received about your designs?

I can’t think of one particular compliment that stands out, but many have commented they really like my large photo templates.

What is the latest you’ve ever stayed up to finish a design or scrap?

I may have been known to pull many “all nighters”. I’m night owl, and a procrastinator, so it works J

What’s your favorite snack to have handy while you design?

Coke and Sixlets candy.

What book are you reading right now?

A family history written by my Great, Great Grandfather Thomas Briggs. VERY interesting read!

Favorite TV show?

Modern Family or The Middle

What is your guilty pleasure? 

Dove Chocolates

Where is the farthest you have been from home? 

Europe (Italy)

What is your favorite quote? 

We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.

If you were given one wish that was sure to come true, what would you wish for? 

My mom passed away in February from Brain Cancer.  I would give anything to have her here with us again.

If you could change one thing about this world, what would it be?

To love one another.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you make your home? 

Hawaii!!

Which would you pick…more money or more time? 

Definitely TIME. It’s something I always wish I had more of! To me it’s priceless.

What personality traits do you hope to pass on to your children? 

My love and compassion for others, thoughtfulness, and creativity.

What personality traits do you hope you do not pass on to your children? 

My lack of patience, procrastination and my good intentions with no follow thought.

What was it about you that first drew your significant other to you? 

A combination of my spunk, confidence, and radiance (or at least that’s what he tells me icon smile Meet our August 2014 Featured Designer   Little Bit Shoppe ).
