I’m just a quiet person who prefers to be in the back of wherever I am. I really don’t like attention. So you won’t find me on Instagram, Pinterest or Facebook. I did try them but decided they are really not for me.

I actually dabbled in scrapbooking years ago. The very first pack of papers I made for a freebie was in 2009. It was a slow start. I made a a few things here and there. But it wasn’t until I discovered Digital Scrapbook [Pixel Scrapper] that I really started being active in the scrapbooking world. My first blog train was the PS October 2014 Blog Train Autumn Art. I was hooked.

In January 2017 I was honored to be considered by Digital Scrapbook.com [Pixel Scrapper] as a designer. I have been there for five years as of the writing of this page. I’ve since worked with the wonderful ladies at the Scrappy Sisters store before they closed. Later I joined Toiny and her fantastic Team over at the Digital Scrapbooking Studio. I only left the Studio since I started homeschooling my kindergartner in addition to my 4th grader & I didn’t want to juggle too much. Altho I have been homeschooling my kids since 2004 I still know my limits lol!

On the personal side, I’ve been married to one of my best friends for over 20 years and have had 6 children, the oldest has left the nest, 2 were born sleeping in 2009 & 2014 and the other 3 are currently at home. I grew up in Florida but have lived in Louisiana and now Kentucky is home. Hubby and I have always been homesteaders and love to live life the old fashioned way. Tho my hubby is a tech geek too. Throughout the years we have raised chickens, goats & turkeys. We have wanted to raise cows & sheep but haven’t quite got there yet.

I have a special fondness for pantries – maybe because my grandmother always had a well stocked pantry. Curios are those novel, rare or eccentric bits of odds & ends which I have always loved. So I hope you enjoy The Curio Pantry where I hope to fill it with all kinds of delicious odds & scraps.
