You've seen her Work.. now meet DAWN!

I'd like to take today to introduce Dawn - she's been supplying BSD with tons of fabulous projects for months, and we never really took the time for you to get to know her.. Here's what she had to say about herself:

"When I was asked to do this bio the first thing that came to mind is that I hate to talk about myself. I love to tell everyone about my family and friends, I like to share , I love to laugh and I love crafting of all sorts. Oh my gosh… guess what I realized… I am talking about myself. LOL. Yup… that’s right I love to laugh, I love crafting of all sorts and my family and friends are so very important to me. I am the mother of 4 beautiful children. My oldest is 19 and is serving in the US Army ( can you tell how very proud of him I am?!) I have a 7th grade son and an 8th grade son and a 6 year old daughter. I am so very proud of them all and scrapbooking helps me to document all those little somethings they said or did. My husband is my best friend, my biggest supporter and the absolute love of my life. . I went to college to be a veterinarian, married my high school sweetheart who was in the Army and my life changed forever. I am doing exactly what God intended for me at this moment.

I started crafting when I was 7 years old thanks to two grandmothers and a mom who knitted , sewed and crafted their fingers to the bone. I was heavily involved in all aspects of 4H and it just helped my madness for all things crafting grow. I sew, I scrapbook, I quilt, I computer craft with a laser machine, I take pictures, I glass etch, I make Christmas ornaments out of recyclables, I even do some woodworking. Wow… did you see all those I s?! This is getting kind of interesting. Hmm… what is my scrapbooking style… let me put it like this… whatever the pictures or supplies make me feel. I have no distinct style and tend to try a little of everything. If it feels right it usually ends up looking the way I want it to… yup fly by the seat of my pants! Yes I do have a paper stash, an embellishment stash, a sticker stash, a fabric stash… yes… my craft room is overwhelming. Sigh… but such is life. What other things are a part of my life…. Secret ( I love to sing) … in the car, at home, in church… it makes me feel happy. I love to write and have kept a journal since I was 10. I am always it seems trying to lose these extra pounds but am pretty comfy in my own skin. I believe in God. Did I already say I love to laugh? Oh yeah… I am ticklish. If you haven’t guessed it yet I am a silly sometimes ADD adult! What can I say… this is life and we should live it to the fullest every day. I am thrilled with this opportunity (Thanks by the way!) and look forward to where it pushes me. Okay lets get scrapbooking and have some fun."

What a sweetheart! And she always has the funnest things to share.. I loved her Altered notebook:
