Getting to Know Lee Currie

I wanted to take a moment to introduce you all to Lee Currie, our Guest Designer for the upcoming Simplify the Season Class. Lee is quite simply an amazing woman - I encourage you all to visit her blogs to see what I am talking about. You will love her work but more importantly you will love her spirit :) Lemons2Lemonade & Linar Studio

Below is a photo and little bio that Lee wrote up for us to share.
I am a very involved mother of our active children: Claire (13), Cole (12); Chloe (10) and Caden (9) and the wife of one entrepreneurial husband, Louis. Never a dull moment in or out of my house: many hours are spent in hockey rinks, at ball diamonds, on school grounds, on riverbanks and in auditoriums as parent, spectator and volunteer.

Going at a break-neck pace is not always a good thing, so to slow things down and add perspective, I document these events and the more everyday happenings. I want for my kids to look back at their childhoods and there be something to see. My spare time is spent making a mess in my studio, on the computer writing and blogging, and everywhere else playing with my new Canon 40D.

After 20+ years in the grocery industry, primarily in category management (merchandising) and developing private label product I knew I'd never go back after I was home with the kids. I went to my first scrapbook home party, and that was it, I found a way to combine my passions: photography, writing and paper. That was six years ago and I haven't considered stopping since!

Welcome Lee! You can learn more about the entire Feeling Scrappy Design Team here.
