About Me

Carlisle, Pennsylvania
I am a stay at home mom..now that is! February 19th, 2007 I was involved in a car accident while on vacation in Florida. I awoke in ICU to find out that my only two children Annemarie age 3 and Michael age 5 did not make it. Scrapbooking became such a big part of my life. It helped fill a void that I desperately needed to fill. Our therapist suggested that I take up scrapbooking as a way to memorialize my children, little did she know! So I took that and ran with it.I became obsessed with scrapping and took over the second largest room in my house. Because of my injuries I couldn't go out and get a job, I just scrapped!I printed out 2,000 photos and my journey began. I have made albums for family members and layouts to decorate my craft room. We thought we were done having kids but who expected this tragedy??? I just gave birth in June 2009 to two beautiful baby girls Mia Anne and Gianna Marie named after their brother and sister.I swore that I would keep up with their albums so I won't become overwhelmed so we will see how that works out! My profile picture is the last family picture that was taken of all of us.

On my way to Germany...I wish!

We are traveling to Germany this week with the Sisterhood! Last time we traveled to Scotland and this time we are on our way to Germany. I was honestly stumped with the Germany challenge. Even though my husband is half German I don't know much about the heritage or culture. I was the one that went to Octoberfest and had wine!!!! I was so excited when I looked thru and found some beer stickers that actually had GERMAN LAGER on it. So I came up with this quick card using the German colors along with the stickers.

So if you want to get away for awhile...even if it is just for a couple of minutes, come on over to the Sisterhood Of Crafters and share your German inspired creation with us.


  1. WOW Lis! This is too cool! I LOVE it! I'd like to order one of those, please :)

  2. Lisa, this card totally captures the feel of all good things German! Great job, sistah!
