We are excited to have our friend Keri Sallee guest designing with us today. We fell in love with her mixed media home decor projects sometime last year and have been lucky enough to meet up with her a couple times at CHA. Keri has some awesome projects to share today that she created with our "Thrilling" collection... just in time for Halloween!
I have always had a love for all things creative from writing and cooking to music and art. I started, like so many, dabbling in Creative Memories when my son was born almost 10 years ago. It was pages of rounded corners and sticker vomit, but after a while I began to wonder if there was more to "scrapbooking" than this simplistic style. So I started spending time online and at a local scrapbook store finding out what else was out there. I started finding a beautiful world of textures, colors, messy fun inks and paints and so much more than where I had come from.
And that is how I live my creative life...always looking for ways to challenge myself and create something new.
I have been married to the cutest red-head on the planet for almost 11 years and am the mother to 3 fabulous and funny kiddos ages 9, 5 and 3. I recently quit my job as the Creative Coordinator at my local scrapbook store so that I can spend more time with my family and more time on my craft.
If you ask me what my motto in life is, I would have to say there are two...(1) Picasso once said "Inspiration does exist, but it must find you working." I strive everyday to not just THINK creatively, but to put those thoughts into my hands and make something of them. (2) Genesis 1:1...The first five words in the Bible are "In the Beginning GOD Created..." For me it is a constant reminder that I am only able to do what I do because GOD first created me.
