Introducing ...

Thank you for joining us this past month as we introduced
the members of our 2012 Design Team to you.
We think we've got a great group of designers and hope you enjoyed getting to know them.

Today we would like to introduce to you one more member....

Hi everyone! I'm thrilled to be a part of the Imaginisce team again this year and taking on the role of DT Co-ordinator. We've got lots of exciting things in store! I began scrapbooking as a child but really got started about 15 years ago - the era of stickers and dissecting ones' photos to pieces! I honestly can't even bear to look at those pages now! I live in British Columbia, Canada with my husband and our three children. They ALL keep me busy as wife and mother but I wouldn't trade it for anything. I love playing the piano, watching romantic movies, going to the beach, photography and, of course, spend way too much time scrapbooking!!

Here are 5 interesting facts about me:
  1. When I was 8 years old I went with my family to Quito, Ecuador to visit some friends who were missionaries. We went over Christmas time and I remember it being so strange to not have snow for Christmas.
  2. When I was 25 I graduated with my Masters of Music in Piano. I loved studying intensely for 2 years and find that playing piano relaxes me and soothes my soul. My fingers just become one with the keyboard. A feeling that I can't truly describe. I've taught piano now for over 20 years.
  3. I'm extremely ticklious!
  4. I love chocolate! LOVE it!
  5. I am extremely claustrophobic and get bad motion sickness. (not a great thing when we have a Disneyland trip planned in a few months!)
One thing that most people don't know about me (well my family & my hubby do):
When I was about 3 years old I took my Dad's shaving razor and decided I was going to shave just like he did every morning. Only problem was is that I started on my nose!! I actually sliced off a very small section on the side of my nose. My parents were worried that I'd have to have some kind of plastic surgery when I was older but it healed fine and you can't even tell.


Thanks Cari for sharing a little bit about yourself! We're excited to have you leading our team and look forward to seeing your beautiful work again this year!
You can follow Cari and see more of her wonderful creations on her blog.

Well, this completes our 2012 Design Team Introductions.
We hope that you have enjoyed getting to know our new team members.

Cari, what fun reading more about you! I had a razor incident as a child too! In my Mom's sewing room I grabbed one in my hand and cut myself in a couple spots.

I have an extraordinary respect for any knife and seeing a razor blade makes me a little nervous to this day!

So excited to be on the team with you in 2012!!! What a great lineup!

Good to get to know you more. I would love to hear you play the piano sometime. I am always so jealous of those who can play. Wish I could.

Hey sweetie, so nice to meet you and know little more about you.
So... let me tell you: I never saw snow, I'd love to see snow at least once in my life!!!
I feel very honored and happy to work at the same time you!

Ilene said...

So fun reading about you Cari! Too funny about the razor, but I'm sure it wasn't as funny back then :) Makes for a good story though!!

Shellye said...

What a wonderful read! I've always, always wanted to learn to play the piano...if I lived closer, I'd taken lessons from you LOL!
