Your Scrappy Jo member name?

Your first name?
Aimee Very Happy

*Tell us a bit about yourself.

I only have a couple of hobbies – scrapbooking and reading, heavy on the scrapping. I have a fun job (special education preschool aide) and I work with two wonderful people – how many people can say they laugh at work every day? I am married to my high school hottie and we have one daughter, who is the main focus of my scrapping…

Got a blog? Or website? You want to share.
Blog? That’s one bandwagon I haven’t jumped on. I play a bit on myspac
e and facebook, but that’s mostly to keep in touch with family. I’m lazy that way…

*How did you get started in scrapbooking? *
My daughter was one when I was bitten by the scrapbooking bug, and I haven’t looked back since. There used to be other things I enjoyed doing, other crafts, but those have been abandoned or incorporated into my scrap hobby. Obsession, I should say!

*How long have you been scrapbooking?
Samantha will be thirteen this summer, so that will be twelve years that I’ve been addicted to scrapping.

*What’s your favorite paper line?
It’s tough to choose only one, but if you pinned me down – Fancy Pants. Next would be My Mind’s Eye and Making Memories… Kaiser Craft is drawing my eye lately, too!

What product(s) are you addicted to right now? *

Ooooh, I just picked up some Prima “Say it in Pearls” self adhesive embellishments… Those are awesome! I also love the Fancy Pants transparent die cuts, but I find I keep saving them for a “special” project. I just need to USE ‘em! One more thing keeps creeping into a lot of my stuff: the Fiskars Threading Water punch. LOVE that. Seriously!

*What inspires you creatively? *
Our own Suzanne has gotten me hooked on sketches. I never re
ally used them until I was a member here, and now I can’t get enough. Magazines, online galleries and the pictures I scrap also speak to me.

*What brought you to Scrappy Jo's?
Not what, but WHO! Tigger mentioned this site to me, back when it was still Sherri’s.

How long have you been a member of Scrappy Jo's? *
I’ve been playing here since June 2007.

*What do you enjoy the most about Scrappy Jo's? *

All the inspiration from everybody and their work, and the friendliness of everyone!

*What is on your scrappy wish list? *

I have way too much – don’t need anything! However, I would love every single color of poster paint that Sharpie makes!!! I LOOOOOOVE that pen!

*What is something about you that we may not know?*

Sheesh. THAT’s a tough question – I’m pretty much an open book. Okay, here’s one. I’m happy with only having one child, but if my husband said he wanted to have one more, I’d jump on it. I’m safe though – he doesn’t… But think about all I could scrap with one more kid!

Lori's Questions

1. What is on your iPod/in your CD player right now?
Sugarland, Jesse McCartney, Aerosmith, Shaggy, Flo Rida, Corinne Bailey Rae, Duffy, Justin Timberlake, Kid Rock, T.I., quite the eclectic mix…

2. Finish this sentence: I am so glad I never . . . . .
Listened to my friends in high school who said Ben was too young for me…

3. If granted one wish, what would you do with it??

I’d wish that my family was always happy and healthy.

4. They say that everyone has a twin somewhere in the world. What is your twin doing right now?
Scrapping, silly!

5. Someone writes a biography about you. Its title is. . . .
Grateful. I’m really happy to be in a *mostly* happy relationship with my hubby, to be Mom to such a great kid, and to have enough.

6. Who is your favorite band? And why?
That would probably have to be Journey. The old Journey… I just love the sound of Steve Perry’s voice. And the 80’s ballads – brings back some very good memories… We saw them in concert once – it was quite romantic. Lol.
