Meet Joni Scrap Our Stash Design Team Member
Joni who lives in Phoenix, Arizona started scrapbooking in late 2001 when she was trying to preserve a memory of a recently lost pet. She was glad she was already involved in this hobby when her son, Joseph, was born in 2003. Her husband of 17 years, John, supports her creative "habit/addiction", knowing that she is preserving memories for her son and his future family. She feels she is truly blessed.
Joni scrapbooks almost every night for 1 - 3 hours although, some of that time is spent rummaging through her stash to find the "perfect" paper or embellishment. Joni states, "this is why I"m thrilled to have found this challenge blog, to help me use what i already own. My wallet likes this too!" She confesses that she is addicted to patterned paper (some of it is so beautiful she can't bring herself to use it). She keeps saving it for the "perfect layout".
Joni enjoys participating in different challenge sites and feels they are great for helping her think "outside the box" or just get a jump start. She is also on the design team at Practical Scrappers. She has lots of stash to scrap and loves a challenge. She hopes as a team member of Scrap Our Stash to provide inspiration to others.
As a requirement for the Design Team call Joni was asked to complete a "STASH" project. This could be anything she wanted to do that had something to do with her stash.
"Our Cowboy" is Joni's Stash Project.
She said she had a package of Karen Foster Charms for a long time. Her son was a cowboy for Halloween and so she thought she would use a couple of them. Then decided "what the heck am I saving them for?" So, she SCRAPPED HER STASH and used the whole darn package. She also used "really old" patterned paper & some fun chipboard stars which she covered with card stock & then doodled. The black circles are doodle stitched with Smooches (ink).
So, how could Joni have not been chosen for the Design Team? I think she is going to be a great asset to the team and I can't wait to see what she will contribute in the future. You can check out Joni's blog at http://joniparkerstuff.blogspot.com/
