1 .Name? Dina Wakley
2. What is your Day job? Mom and all-around super-woman. I have a degree in English & was a technical writer/editor B.K. (i.e. before kids).
3. Do you have a spouse children..pets? Reed is my fab husband, and I have 3 boys (Curt is 13, Cole is 11, and Carter is 9).
4. Do you have a blog that you regularly post on?Yep, it's http://dinastamps.typepad.com
5. How long have you been scrapbooking? Since 1995!!! My early pages are hysterical, but ya know what? My kids love 'em.
6. Where do you find your inspiration for layouts? Everywhere! I love colors, nature, fine art, cool design...the littlest leaf can inspire dozens of pages for me.
7. What is your "must-have" item on a layout (other than the necessities)? Sewing...I sew on everything.
8. What would you say your scrapping style is? Artsy & grungy at times, but not super-embellished. I am not good at using embellishments. I admire people who are good at using them!
9. Can you describe your scrapping process?I very often start inking or painting or combining PPs on a page without a picture in mind...I am forever hunting for pictures for pages I've already started. I am very right-brained and impulsive, so I just "do" without thinking. I'm a quick scrapper, too...pages rarely take me more than an hour and usually take me around 30 minutes. I love it when a page clicks and comes together fast.
