Hi! My name is Kelly Janes. I live in Northern Indiana with my husband (Andy) of nearly 15 years, our son (Aidan) and our fur babies. I work full time outside the home as an Ortho Clinic Tech, but during any free time you will find me in my craft room.
In 2013 my favorite scrapbook store closed and that is when I started looking online for crafting inspiration. After overcoming a little fear and anxiety, I decided to start my own blog. I am passionate about the creative process of scrapbooking and I love learning new techniques! I enjoy traditional scrapbooking, card making, mini albums, stamping, mixed media, and occasionally I’ll toss in digital/hybrid scrapbooking. I’m currently designing for the CUT to YOU Cut File Shop and have also designed for Hip Kit Club, The Cut Shoppe, Pretty Little Studio and Altenew.
Just for a little added fun here are 10 random facts about me:
- I’m the mom of a micro-preemie.
- I could eat popcorn every day. No joke!
- I prefer cold, rainy days over warm, sunny days.
- I’ve worked at the same dental office since I graduated college 16 years ago.
- I scrapbook for the creative outlet. Documenting our memories is just a great bonus!
- I collect coffee mugs from local potters. In fact, we have 3 kitchen cabinets full of coffee mugs.
- I’ve known my husband since we were little kids, age 6 or so, but we didn’t start dating until right after we graduated high school.
- You probably guessed after reading #06 that I’m addicted to coffee. Iced or hot. I love them both.
- I prefer watching a TV show over watching a movie. (and when I say watching a TV show, I really mean binge watching an entire TV series… HELLO NETFLIX & HULU!) << I’m currently binge watching Parks & Rec, X-Files, New Girl, Criminal Minds and ER. Pretty Little Liars is another fave! Don’t judge! HA! I also enjoy weather documentaries.
- My very first job was washing cars at a car dealership.
