I have been paper crafting and scrapbooking for over 10 years and still love it today! I had the great opportunity to work for Chatterbox as their Educational and Marketing Director for 3 years and then left to pursue other adventures in my life (including being a stay at home mom to my 6 kids and wife to hubby Ben. When I left Chatterbox, I started a new adventure working for Making Memories as a book and project designer, and also accepted a position as a Contributing Editor for Scrapbooks Etc, Better Homes and Gardens Magazine.
In the Fall of 2007, with the encouragement of my husband, I
decided to venture out on my own and start Scarlet Lime. Over the
course of a year, Scarlet Lime grew much more than we expected and
now that is what we both do full time. We love our job! In 2009,
we also started a sister company called Scarlet Lime BeadArt! Our BeadArt
website carries Jewelry supplies including fun unique beads and
charms and DIY kits as well!
And why the name Scarlet Lime? Well to be honest, it's simple. My favorite color is and always has been red, scarlet red, and lime flavored anything is my absolutely my favorite treat. The idea behind the kit club was to bring together all sort of patterns, textures, and styles; mix modern with vintage, funky with chic. So Scarlet and Lime, two things you normally wouldn't put together,( but two things I love), just seemed to be the perfect fit!
I also love to blog and teach online! I tried to post
daily inspiration on my personal blog and am currently teaching
online e-course about Mixed media on my blog as well!
