Social Saturday – About Me

Every Saturday I like to get a little personal with my readers and share what’s going on in my world, my head, and/or my heart! I hope you’ll play along with me as I share a little about myself each week!

Welcome to the first Social Saturday of 2012!


With the start of the new year, I took the opportunity to update my About Me page as I realized it has been awhile since it was tended to. Some of the goals of the blog have changed, and I have changed as a result of the blog! All in positive ways, I’m happy to say!

I don’t know how many of you ever read my About Me page (the link is under my blog banner at the top of the page) so I thought it would fun to start the year off with a little introduction about myself and the blog. Please have a read. You might learn something about me you didn’t already know!
So, other than needing to update my photo, here’s the new and improved “Me.” 😉

Hello! My name is Michele, and I own and run The Scrap Shoppe.
I’m a mom to a brilliant toddler (you can be brilliant at 3 years old, right?) and an adorable 9 month old, 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!
Except sewing.
My goal is to get the sewing machine I received for Christmas in 2010 out of the box in 2012!
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!
Feel free to send me an email!
