I have been a crafter ever since I can remember and have loved every minute of it! Scrapbooking is my passion and something I look forward to doing every day. I have been a hobby scrapbooker, a CM consultant, a store owner, a teacher, and Creative Director for Li’l Davis Designs. Through these opportunities I was able to travel all over the world, teaching at conventions, trade shows, stores, and special events. There is nothing I enjoy more than sharing my love of crafting with others!
I decided to start PDW in 2007 to provide inspiration and project orientated kits to all of my fellow scrapbookers out in the world. Having four crazy children and one adorable grandbaby, plus a super cute husband that I call my personal saint, staying home with my family has always been very important to me. So what better way to share my fun with everyone and still be a “Mommy” at home, then to start PDW.
For years after finishing teaching classes, I would always get requests for
extra class kits. The more I taught, the more I saw the need for project
orientated kits, ones that used new techniques and let the end user develop and
show their own personal sense of style. So out of my love to create and desire
to share it with the world, Polkadot Whimsy was born.
Once of my greatest passions is for all things “vintage”. From my home décor with it’s modern vintage flair to my personal sense of style I can’t help but find a new way to use something “old”. On the weekend you can find me scouring my favorite flea markets and antique malls. Of course this spills over into my scrapbooking and to the PDW kits as well. Many of the kits include some of my vintage findings from my weekend treasure hunting that I just know you will love!
My main goal is for everyone to be able to find their inner scrapbooker, to create and document their most special memories while having fun doing it. If you ever have any questions, just email me. Thank you so much for all of your support of PDW over the past years. It has been a crazy ride and I am looking forward to the future and what it will bring for PDW.
