My name is Shani. I’m a former elementary school teacher turned wife, mother of three and happy homemaker. I dabble in many different crafts from sewing, knitting and crocheting to paper crafting and building furniture. I love working on projects and that’s what my blog is all about.
I am a married mother of 2 girls 17 and 11 and have had a love of crafts ever since I can remember. Every single birthday party I have done for my kids have been done at our home and have involved me making something for it. Whether it be a sweet sixteen party done in a Paris theme or a Harry Potter themed party complete with Honey dukes candy store and the train station I just can’t stop dreaming up new ideas. My newest passion and love is working with Polymer clay. For the last several years I have been very active in the annual local Christmas craft fairs selling my clays as Christmas ornaments. I have always wanted to expand my clays into non-seasonal pieces and have discovered that there is a whole new world out there in scrapbooking. Using embellishments in your scrapbook is a fun way to jazz up your pages and I hope to show you how to make your own using polymer clay and other scrapbooking supplies.
I’m a part-time high school teacher living in the beautiful city of Victoria who loves to work with stamps and paper in my spare time. I am fortunate to be blessed with an amazing husband and two equally amazing grown up children.
I live on a small acreage in Manitoba with my husband of 19 years along with our daughter, son and Norwegian Elkhound. Our little piece of heaven is located in the Pembina Valley where I enjoy gardening, tending to my flower beds and admiring the hummingbirds and goldfinches flitting through the yard. I am a stay at home mom who is kept busy with cooking, cleaning and driving our children in all directions. I have been a paper crafter for about 15 years, and you will often find me creating cards in my messy basement craft room. I enjoy all the different styles of card making from rubber stamping, working with digital stamps, die cutting both electronically and manually and have recently starting dabbling in the world of mixed media! I’m so excited to be working with Scrapbooks by Design!
I live in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada with my two amazing girls and have been married to my high school sweetheart for 16 years. I have been an avid scrapbooking for the past 11 1/2 years. I love scrapbooking and card making. I have also been doing Project Life for the past two years and now incorporated pocket style scrapbooking along with my traditional scrapbooking. My style is whatever is inspiring me at the moment. I can’t say that there is any one product that I use on every project I create but love dies, inks and stamps!
