Biography

Living in a busy Colorado suburb, I share space with my craft tolerant husband of 19 years, my two boys, Ben (14) & Andrew (11) and a very spoiled pointer puppy named Sophia who rivals me for the title of queen of the castle. I’ve been scrapbooking since right before my wedding in 1995, when I went to a Creative Memories party and instantly bought the “Had to Have it All’ kit and haven’t slowed down since. My board name, sillypea, has nothing to do with the famous veggie craft site, but is a nickname I had for my boys as babies and that I used as inspiration for a business name when I created custom scrapbooks for others - Silly Pea Productions. I no longer craft for others, but wouldn’t trade the experience and lessons it taught me about this lovely craft. I truly enjoy every element of this hobby and create many pages every year and find it balances out my very geeky accounting & finance day job. Outside of work & scrapbooking, I love reading daily, although quite slowly I have to admit as I am a lover of words, and I’m also dabbling in writing my own series of novels that hopefully someday will be read by the masses. Thanks for taking the time to read about me.
