When I think of Tracy, the word "enthusiasm" automatically comes to mind. If it's a challenge, a class assignment or anything in between, Tracy is almost always the first to come through with her amazing work! We at Feeling Scrappy are so thrilled to have her a part of our little community, and we know all of you will love to get to know her, too! Read on for a bit about Tracy, and also visit her blog to see more of her lovely work.
What is the most important aspect to scrapbooking to you?
I think of myself as a very creative person trapped in a 9 to 5 (or more) office job. Scrapbooking allows me to both relax and exercise the creative part of my brain!
What are your favorite pages to work on?
Any page that has a "wow" photo on it - I love figuring out new ways to highlight the photo.
What, if anything, do you find hard to scrap?
A couple years ago, I would have said "me," but spending two years working on my Book of Me has cured that! I don't really find anything in particular hard to scrap.
What kind of camera do you use? Do you love it or hate it?
Canon Rebel XT (love it) and Nikon Cool Pix (love it).
What do you enjoy most about scrapbooking?
The sense of relaxation and accomplishment it gives me!
Tell us a little about your family.
I have been married to my husband Adam for just over 10 years and we have a 4 1/2 year old daughter, Alexa. We have been trying to adopt a second child from Russia since April of 2007, but things are complicated and moving slowly. We're hopeful that early next year is realistic. We also have two German shepherds, a cat, and two big tanks of tropical fish.
Tell us about the things outside of scrapbooking that you enjoy.
I read voraciously and always have a stack of books on my night table. I also enjoy swimming (and the beach!) and horror movies! I co-breed and co-own additional German shepherds who live with my partner in Connecticut, and when I have time I enjoy training and showing.
