About Me

I was raised in Seattle, Washington... and Maui, Hawaii... and Bountiful, Utah, and I have lived in Tooele, Utah for the past 7 years.  I have 1 husband, 5 children, 8 brothers and 7 sisters, and at last count over 55 nephews and nieces, also 1 1/2 great-nephews (my oldest niece is expecting her 2nd).  I love family history and am working my way toward becoming accredited. I also love scrapbooking and card making, which is ironic since up until about 2 years ago I laughingly called myself the anti-craft, because I was positive that no part of crafting would ever interest me.

By some serendipitous turn of events now, next to family history, it is my favorite hobby of all time.  I am as likely to scrapbook a long lost ancestor that I am intrigued by as I am to scrapbook my children. I attribute my love of paper-crafting to my sister, who helped me re-discover my long lost creative side.  And I feel lucky every day to be married to my very own Prince Charming, who supports me in my family history researching, scrapbooking, cardmaking, theater running, homeschooling, crazy life, that I wouldn't change for anything.
