Just wanted to pop on and say hello. My name is Anabelle O'Malley and I'm so excited to be one of the new Tulip Girls. Tulips are actually my very favorite flowers in the world. I love that they are the first that bloom in the spring and I love their simplicity. That's why I think it's a perfect fit for me to be at Label Tulip! Oh, and the fact that I absolutely adore the kits contributes a bit to my excitement, too. ;)
I live in Delaware with my husband and my son. I've been scrapping for the last five years and absolutely love it. I guess you could call it an obsession! One of the things that I love most about this hobby is the connections I have been able to make with other scrappers onine. I don't have an LSS nearby and none of my 'real world' friends scrap. So, the friendships I've formed online have been great. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone at Label Tulip and finding inspiration from you all.
I've also been lucky to work on the publication side of things. I've had cards published in Paper Crafts and Cards and my layouts have been found in Scrapbooks Etc., Scrapbook Trends, and Scrapbooks and Cards Today, to name a few. This past August, I found out that I was selected as one of the 2009 Memory Makers Masters, so my pages have been featured in this magazine this year! It's been an amazing experince.
I do have a life outside of scrapping, though. ;) Pre-Ryan I was a teacher (mostly first grade) and I taught for 16 years. Now, I work part time at the local university, but mostly spend time with Ryan and tackle the never ending laundry pile at home! He'll be going to school for a full day next fall, so I'm taking full advantage of the time I have left with him at home.
I could probably ramble on even more, but don't want to bore you to death! I'll leave you with one last thing. An image of my very favorite type of tulip.
Now it's your turn. Leave a comment by midnight Friday, April 3 telling me about your favorite kind of tulip or your favorite flower. I'll choose a winner from the comments and send out a little RAK. ;)
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
