Hi everyone! Amy here again! It's my turn for the Pocket Chick Spotlight and I am so excited to share a little bit about myself with you today! Before I answer the questionaire, I wanted to share this layout with you. When I'm not scrapbooking, you can most likely find me running or biking. It's become one of my passions and something I am grateful to have in my life. Like scrapbooking, running and biking is therapy for me and I wanted to document where I am right now in my Run Bike Life with photos taken by my eight-year-old and journaling of my goals met and future goals. I used papers and chipboard from The Good Life collection (my current Fancy Pants Designs fave!), along with papers from the Artist Edition Memo Notebook (I love that Memo Notebook and use it all the time!).
Q: What is your favorite technique?
A: Currently, I love using my die-cutting machine. I love using the negative and positive shapes from the die-cut papers and layering them with foam adhesive.
Q: How long have you been scrapbooking?
A: It's seems like forever. I have some of those really old newsprint scrapbooks (cringe!) from back in middle school. If it was a momento of any kind and could be flattened to fit in a scrapbook, I kept it!
Q: What are some goals you have for yourself, scrap-related or personal?
A: Well, you've probably read my journaling above already ... a personal goal of mine ... I want to run a marathon. It will have to be when both of my kids are in school all day, because the training is so time consuming. So, I'm thinking ... a marathon before I turn 40. :-) And no, I'm not telling you how far away that is! :-)
Q: If someone was to walk into your scrap room/area right now, what would they find?
A: A clean room! I'm serious!! It doesn't happen very often, but right this very moment, it is clean. Maybe I should get a picture! :-)
Q: What do you listen to or watch while scrapbooking?
A: A mix on my iPod. Toby Mac, old 80s tunes, Genesis, Chris Tomlin, Owl City, Phil Collins, The Beatles—to name a few.
Q: What time of day do you usually scrapbook and where?
A: During the day, in between dropping off and picking up kids from school or during "quiet time".
Q: What are some other hobbies you enjoy?
A: Knitting! I'm currently working on a cute short-sleeved, cabled hoodie. Hoping to get it done in time for fall.
