Guest Design Team member for January, 2010

Let me introduce you to Megan Bickers, our first guest design team member for 2010. We fell in love with her awesome cards when she tried out for our design team call in November.

Megan has scrapbooked in some shape or form since she was little. She remembers helping her mom staple and glue scraps of greeting cards, wrapping paper, and memorabilia into large manilla books. Her babysitter introduced her to stamping when she was in elementary school (5th grade). She said she has always been involved in some craft or another, but scrapbooking and cardmaking really fills in all the gaps for her. She loves photography and documenting her family’s stories for her children, she creates her pages with multiple photos and her favorite supply—her stamps! While she has her scrapbooking papers already out, Megan makes cards from the leftovers. They are a perfect size to try out new techniques and to find new ways to use her supplies.

Megan’s family is super supportive of her creative endeavors. She has been married for 12 years to her best friend. They have two elementary aged children (a boy and a girl), and their family wouldn’t be complete without their dog. They live in Texas and love spending as much time as they can outdoors.

Megan is very excited to be a guest designer for Memorable Seasons. She originally found the site when she was looking for some scrapbooking supplies online and has joined the design team for several of the online crops.

A little Scrappy organization for 2010

While I am not lucky enough to have THAT know the one...the organizational one...a place for everything and everything in its place "THE SUPER GENE". I have to give kudos to myself for never giving up on that fleeting possibility of a "clean scrap room". SIGH. So I thought for my post today I would show a few ways that I am trying to give myself a next time I can actually find whatever it is I am looking for. I like to find vintage things that can be used for storage. I love milk glass and use it to stuff trinkets in. It is great because I can visually see everything. It also adds that vintage style I adore and adds a little character. Another thing that has helped me considerably is file folders from Michael's in the dollar section. I have been busy labeling them for my scraps. I swear they are ready to take over any minute and must be contained for my own sanity. One of the cheapest and simplest things I did was install a few pieces of pegboard. I have realized I have to be able to see things to use them. I love how easy it is to put things away and grab them when needed. Same with my to stash it in glass vintage style containers...easy to see what colors you have. Hopefully maybe you can use a few of these ideas for yourself..or build on them for your organizational needs. I really think that it does not need to be expensive or that time consuming to get things in place. You got to start someplace...right?
