As a third grader, Emily Pitts aspired to be a bulletin board designer for elementary school teachers. When she learned that such a career was not really plausible, she was crushed. Years later, when she discovered scrap booking, she realized it might just be the fulfillment of her childhood dreams. Emily lives a mile high in beautiful Denver, Colorado, enjoying the 300 days of sunshine for which the Rocky Mountains are known. She is married to her perfect match, Kelly, who is patient very patient with her need to create and take photos. They have two near perfect children, Annie (16) and Ethan (almost 13). Together, they provide endless inspiration for Emily’s scrap booking needs. Influenced by collage artists of late, Emily hopes her style would be described as handmade and fun, she likes to hand-cut things and use stitching in her designs. She’s been published in various scrapbook magazines worldwide, and has the pleasure of writing a regular column on trends for Scrapbook and Cards Today. She also happily designs for Studio Calico–a kit club and manufacturer, and the online inspirational collective, Write. Click. Scrapbook. So while bulletin boards are no longer her genre of choice, she has found her place in the world of design.
I am a 38yo mama of 2 girls and a wife of one incredibly hard working and devastatingly handsome computer guru (nerd?).We live in the desert & share our homes with 2 dogs, a Yorkie named "Waffles" and a German Shepherd named "Pancakes" (I'm thinking we must have been hungry when we named them.) I've been "crafty" for as long as I can remember & I'm so glad to be a part of the whole crafty/handmade revolution that's going on now.
