At work, I have been super busy with proofing and editing all the copy for the magazine. I was hoping to use my lunch hours to do the Photo Editing: Frame-Ups & Special Effects class from jessicasprague.com. Luckily I had some time this morning to do Project 1: Frame Up and Word-i-fy.

Plus I love that this lesson included a word so appropriate for my daughter.

I am a wife, mother of an 12 y.o. daughter, and appreciator of many things crafty. I love most paper crafts, especially scrapbooking and cardmaking. I love keeping up with new trends while still leaning on the classics. In addition to those fun adventures, I am an independent consultant with Close to my Heart. I recently returned to my alma mater, Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa, where I now work as the news director.
