Hello! My name is Michele, and I own and run The Scrap Shoppe.
I'm a mom to two brilliant little boys, wife to a great man, and puppy mom to our 2 wonderful dogs.
I work full time as a research scientist at a university in Nashville, TN studying the misfolded proteins that cause diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
In my spare time:
Other than playing with my boys, I love to craft. I grew up in a home with a very creative mother, so I definitely have an "I can make that!" attitude, and tend to give things a try on my own instead of purchasing the things I see.
You'll find an eclectic collection of projects here on my blog since I enjoy dabbling in all sorts of different media. From paper crafting to scrapbooking, from jewelry making to
home decor, there's a little bit of everything around here!
My goal is to get the sewing machine I received for Christmas in 2010 out of the box in 2012!
UPDATE: It came out of the box! Read more here.
Graphic design is also something I've always been interested in, and I run two online t-shirt stores. You can read more about them here.
Using this blog, I want to share with you the craft projects that catch my eye, interesting craft techniques, and give you some fun freebies that you can download and use in your own crafting.
You can (literally) find me all over the web!
Thank you for stopping by to find out more about me! Feel free to leave me comments on the blog. I love your comments and getting a chance to connect with you!
