We are excited to introduce our February 2012 Guest Designer, Brenda!
"Hello all! My name is Brenda Smith and I can't even begin to express how ecstatic I am at having been asked to be the CKCB Guest Designer this month. I have always thought myself to be a creative person and have tried my hands at all sorts of art forms. My scrapbooking journey began in July of 2010 when my daughter was 3 months old. It seemed like she was doing new things every day and I wanted to be sure that I would remember those memories in the years to come. Scrapbooking has become a form of self-expression as well as a means of memory preservation and I cannot imagine loving any other craft as much I love paper crafts. I am now quite the collector of scrapbooking supplies and have greatly appreciated the inspiration CKCB provides to use up my rather large stash. I am blessed to be on the design team for Authentique Paper. The owners and my fellow DT members have been such a joy to work with and I feel I have learned so much from all of them.
I live in Southern California with my husband Adam and my daughter Harper. I was home-schooled up until 9th grade by my art-loving mom and had the love of creating instilled in me from a very young age. I have a large family with nine siblings, seven nieces and nephews, and two sets of parents. Needless to say, holidays are always lots of fun and very loud. I work as a nanny and love my job. Even though the hours can be long and the work is often difficult, it is also very rewarding. I am about to start a new job and am looking forward to getting to know a new family.
With working full time and coming home to a (very busy) toddler of my own, my scrapping time seems to be diminishing. But I squeeze it in as often as possible and am looking forward to the inspiration and encouragement that will come with this month's CKCB. I can't wait to see what you all will create with your kits this month. I am always inspired by everyone's creations and know that this month will be no exception. Thank you for having me as your guest this month and please feel free to stop by blog, http://theimperfectscrapper.blogspot.com/."
