Who am I?
I am mom to an always changing, loving and very funny little gal. I am wife to a fun and supportive husband. With them I have learnt a billion new things and continue to do so everyday. Without them I probably would not be sitting in a beautiful craft room surrounded by piles of paper. I am an engineering manager at a very awesome company. This girl is proud to be a geek and a woman in tech! Engineering was my first hobby and will always be one of my hobbies!
But in late 2010 I took up another hobby – papercrafting! Amateur art always fascinated me and I dabbled in it often. From creating Rangoli designs for festivals in India to making cards occasionally for friends and family, I always enjoyed creating ever since I can remember. But I started my papercrafting journey seriously in late 2010 with selling cards to raise money for Asha, a local non-profit.
That transformed into a full blown addiction over the years. It is hard to remember exactly when and how I graduated from a box of paper and some decorative scissors to a whole room filled with paper, stamps, gadgets like my ScanNCut and other goodies to help me create.
Till date, I have participated in swaps, been on design teams, taken lots of classes, played in challenges and tried my hand at various techniques. I enjoy every minute of it! From this hobby I have stayed in touch with family and friends. And I have gained some very talented new friends!
What is my style?
Defining one’s style isn’t easy. I discovered this the hard way as I tried many things over the years. My style is constantly changing and evolving too. A new technique, a beautiful photo, a fabulous card by a fellow crafter, a fun trend; these are just some of the things that will inspire me and possibly influence my style.
After much experimenting I have found that I am a Clean & Classy girl at heart. What does this mean? It means that I am drawn to simply made cards with just one or two focal points. It means that I appreciate elegance.
The one category of cards I love making is interactive cards. They bring together my two hobbies of engineering and cardmaking and help form a stronger connection with the card recipient.
