picinic [ˈpɪknɪk] n 1. a common mispronunciation of my last name. 2. a common misspelling of my last name. 3. You're not even close to my last name if you say it or spell it this way.
In all seriousness I'm a stay at home wife and mother who loves to take pictures of her family and document our lives. I've been scrapbooking since 1999 and was a paper scrapper for a long time and switched to digital in late 2007. I found it to be faster, especially with a new baby to take care of. These days my approach has become a hybrid of the two, a healthy mix of paper but with a lot of digital. I love designing on the computer and love that you can take a digital element and turn it in to whatever you need it to be. My favorite ways to scrapbook right now is to make pocket page albums, mini books and full size layouts. My love of paper and digital scrapbooking has allowed me the pleasure of designing for and contributing to several online scrapbooking classes and brands the past few years.
When I'm not scrapbooking I spend my free time sipping coffee, browsing Instagram, reading, bingeing shows online and cheering on my daughter from the soccer field sidelines. I’m a girly girl at heart and love fashion and makeup get a lot of my color inspiration from there.
