Iotamaker by Definition

What is an iotamaker? Well I honestly made up the word. By definition an iota is a "scrap" and I chose the word "maker" as a synonym for "scrapbooker" That is how the word "iotamaker" was born. Scrapbooking is not only my hobby but my escape. After having my first child and choosing to stay home I was really kind of bored. I needed something to do! (A new baby doesn't make that big of a mess and you can only clean your bathroom so many times in one week!) My wonderful husband suggested that I needed a hobby so I started scrapbooking again, something I had not done since high school. Then about 4 1/2 years ago at the Scrapbook Expo I discovered acrylix stamps made by Close To My Heart. How could I argue the ingenuity of these amazing clear stamps that were so easy to use, took up very little space and had an itty bitty price tag. I had to host a party and show all of my friends what I had discovered. After the party I ended up signing up as a consultant and I have enjoyed every moment since!
Now I am a mother of 4 beautiful children and the wife of the most amazing and wonderful man I have ever met. I love capturing our lives with my camera and preserving our memories one layout at a time.


  1. I am in complete agreement with you right now for 2 reasons. #1 I was going to suggest you start your own blog just for business. #2 I was going to suggest you use the exact picture in this post as your new profile :) Only... I think you should also make this one your facebook pic b/c you look gorgeous in it! And not just b/c I took it ;)

  2. I'm so excited about your new blog! I had a blast with you this weekend at our retreat. You are a ray of sunshine. Your house must be filled with happiness and laughter 24/7.
