Scrapbooking Resume

Updated Jan, 2016

About me:
I am a 39 yr old Stay at Home Mom of 5 munchkins! My passion, (outside of my home and family) is inspiring people to be creative!! I love to create on Design Teams to give ordinary people ideas to help them create extraordinary projects! It's easier than people think, and they just need the information and confidence to try! THAT is what I love to do!!
I began as a scrapbooker. THAT was my passion! Now I love it all! I do that, as well as card making, mixed media, Jewlery, Home décor, Mini books and so much more!!!
I now focus a lot of my time on creating video tutorials. I love to SHOW people how easy it is, not just tell them! So I began creating videos to show techniques, tips, full projects, etc.  See link to my You Tube page below!
You Tube Channel
If you are interested in having me create for YOU, please feel free to contact me. I would love to chat with you about YOUR passion and how mine can work with yours! tinamcdonald(at)xplornet(dot)ca
OR If you are interested in having me come and teach a workshop for you, let me know! I'm sure we can work something out that will THRILL your students!!
