Hi! I am Krissy Clark McKee. I live in a suburb of Houston, Texas. My husband and I have a blended Brady Bunch family of six kids (boy, girl, boy, girl, boy, girl). Luckily all but the youngest two are out of the house and self-sufficient, except occasionally during dinner time. Our blended family extends to our family pets, which currently include 4 ankle-biting dogs, 2 cats whose greatest desire is to figure out how to open the pantry door, and a pet rat (yes, you did read that correctly)! I drink entirely too much coffee and think Diet Dr. Pepper is one of man’s greatest inventions! I have been papercrafting over three years now, and it is a full-fledged obsession. I recently began designing my own sketches, and I especially love creating traditional layouts, re-purposing or altering items, and making mini-albums - although as long as I have paper and glue in my hands, I am happy! I love photography and have been known to take random pictures of anything and everything. If it's within range of my camera lens, it's fair game!
I love scrapbooking because in addition to preserving family memories, which is very important to me, it has made me realize that I am an artist (because art is much more than being able to draw). It has become a springboard to my interest in photography, mixed media art, and altered art; and has really caused me to pay attention and look at everything around me with a completely different perspective than I had before. Best of all, I have met so many wonderful people who have truly enriched my life that I would have never met otherwise! I believe in creating memories of our everyday lives (as well as the big events), and my work generally reflects that.
I like to try to figure out how to use new products without reading the directions - which can sometimes lead to unexpected, interesting results. And I LOVE the rush of creativity and mental stimulation I get from trying new things. I live for challenges!!!
