His books “A Compendium of Curiosities” Vol.1 and Vol.2 are filled with creative and inspiring ideas for paper crafters and beyond. He truly lives his motto:

“In a world where the moments of our lives can be captured and created in art of the everyday, it’s important it reflects our own unique personality. Finding just the right objects, accents, and tools to use are most important. Whatever your artistic vision is, exploring the imaginative is a chance for our creativity to escape understanding. Remember life isn’t about finding yourself – life is about creating yourself…”

I have been a “maker” all my life.  Sewing, stamping, paper arts, I love it all.  Back in 2005 I had the opportunity to create a couple projects for 7gypises that were used in the trade show booth.  It worked out so well that I joined the design team and started regularly contributing; creating projects, helping to design the innovative trade show booth and teaching for 7gypsies in the US, Canada, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. 

At the beginning of 2012 I decided it was time for a change.  I am now the Creative Coordinator for Tim Holtz Brands, a dream job if there ever was one.  I now have the opportunity to work with Tim, contribute to his brands, teach with his products and work with designers that create samples for the brands. I love all of it.

Creating and teaching is still a passion for me whether it is in the classroom or on my blog, One Lucky Day  I am also a Ranger certified instructor.

On a personal note, I love to travel to new places to look for old junk and am willing to pack a bag at a moment's notice.  I live on the Central Coast of California with my husband, Jay.  On an ordinary day you can find me organizing my paper supply, rearranging the furniture, and dreaming over a Pottery Barn catalog.
