Greetings! I am Jing-Jing Nickel. Pronounce it like there are nickels in your pocket making that jingling noise! :) I am so delighted to be an official Pocket Chick for Fancy Pants, whose innovative products have been staples in my scrap room for years! I have been scrapbooking since 1999. Back then it was the most perfect extension of my love for traveling and travel photography. Then with the birth of my first child, a new dimension of scrapbooking as well as a new realm of creative possibilities was born with her. Today and every day, I scrap my family, my trips, and my family on trips. No matter what my subjects are, I always stylize them with some humor :) While I am not scrapbooking, I also work full time as an I.T. engineer.
Q: What is your favorite Fancy Pants product?
A: I have so many so I will pick three: 12x12 chipboard sets, die-cuts journaling tags (or booklets), stickers.
Q: What is your favorite technique?
A: Wit and humor.
Q: What time of day do you usually scrapbook and where?
A: I scrapbook on the weekends and usually in the afternoon when the sun is up. During summer I can actually scrapbook in the evening because it is light out for much longer. I have a scrapbook room and it is messy and disorganized. I scrapbook on a table almost completely covered up by stuff. It is as uninspiring as it gets!
Q: What do you listen to or watch while scrapbooking?
A: I have my laptop next to me and I listen to KFAN podcasts. It is a local sports station :) I pause all noises when I compose my journaling.
Q: What are some other hobbies you enjoy?
A: If you can call it a hobby, I am really into group exercises right now. I work out seven times a week totaling six hours. My favorite classes are: BodyPump, BodyStep, and Cardio Kickboxing. I just tried Core Conditioning recently and I was sore for four days!
