HI! I am Misty Willis. I am a stay at home Mom of 5 kids...who keep me laughing all the time. They are all in school, so a large part of my day is spent either volunteering at the various schools, or scrapping my photos of them! I have been scrapping for 14 years since the birth of my first son. I love the art of scrapping, but more importantly, I love the fact that I am preserving my family memories in the process. I want my kids to have beautiful collections of their memories to be able to share with their own children, as I was unable to do that. My family had a house fire when I was 4 and a flood in my house when I was 17...so natural disasters have played a large part in my lack of "history"! My husband and I just celebrated our 17th Anniversary, which means I have literally been married for half of my life! :) I do have every intention of "dancing the funky chicken" with him at our 75th wedding anniversary, so we have a LONG way to go still! I look forward to every minute of it.
I am a detail scrapper if there is such a thing! I like to add the little details to the layout that help to convey the story that the photo is trying to tell. I do mostly hidden journaling, not because I don't want to share my memories, but because I am VERY LONG WINDED! lol...and I do actually TELL the story. I believe that the story is important...because when I am 80 with a failing memory, I will NEED those words to jog my memory!
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE My Minds Eye products. The beauty, the variety, and more importantly, the quality of every single piece is beyond compare. I am truly honored to be the Guest for this month...and I do hope to inspire some of you along the way! Here are a few of my favorite past projects using some of my favorite lines...
You may recognize Misty’s darling “Snow Balls” layout. She won the December blog challenge with it. We would love for you to help us welcome Misty to our team this month. Leave a comment for Misty by midnight, June 12, 2011. We will announce the winner of Misty’s Favorite (MME) Things on Monday, June 13, 2011.
Have a wonderful weekend!
