~10 Things You Didn't Know About Pinky~



Good morning, Pinky here from beautiful Tennessee!

Lori asked us to post a "10 things" post as she introduces the new Design Team~
I am so honored and excited to be a part of the 2011 Imaginisce DT!!! I was privileged to work with Imaginisce in 2010 and it left me wanting even more. Imaginisce has blown me away with the incredible ideas and their amazing kindness, it's going to be a fantastic year!
Here are 10 things you might not know about PINKY!

#1 My favorite color is NOT pink! Shocking I know. 

#2 I LOVE and I mean LOVE horror movies, I get all giddy with excitement and rush to see them, then I sit in the theater with my eyes covered because I hate gore~ hehe

#3 I have had pink hair for over 8 years and NO ONE called me Pinky until
started scrapbooking 3 years ago. I was at a crop and they started calling me Pinky and it stuck.

#4 I collect all things Hello Kitty and my husband is the one who pushes

me to do it, he is always coming home with something new for my collection.

#5 I have 3 boys who adore PINK, even my 6'2 tough biker looking husband loves PINK, they all wear pink and are proud of it,it's adorable in my eyes♥



#6 I sew almost every single day, even if it is just a small hand stitch project. Sewing is the ultimate relaxation for me. Before I scrapbooked I ran a full time plus sized sewing biz.



#7 I am completely addicted to glitter/glitter glue, I cannot help it I love them. I was banned from teaching any more classes with glitter at my local scrapbook store because my last class used 4 giant size bottles!! hahaha


#8 I never even knew what scrapbooking was until I moved to Virginia in 2008, in fact I had never really heard of it before.

#9 Even at 35 I still believe anything is possible and I can be/do anything I set my mind to, I guess hope really does spring eternal. My dream is to have my own paper line one day and teach crafting all over the world~

#10 I feel bad when I don't blog everyday, I think it must be a compulsion now! LOL I love blogging and I wake up at 3am with new ideas for projects and scrapbook pages, and new blog topics. I think my destiny was to be a professional crafter! I feel perfectly at peace crafting.

I also wanted to share on of my favorite Imaginisce projects of 2010...I have a few but this is one of my favorites! :)
My Imaginisce Cocktail Ring *I even made a video tutorial for this*. I have a very active blog and would love for you to check it out, I love making new crafty friends, come by and say Hi~
