Member Spotlight

This month I had the privilege of interviewing one of our talented TTT members for the blog. Here is your chance to get to know more about Tammy!

Your TTT member name?

Sneakybacon. It actually stands for my last name--anyone care to take a guess?

Tell us a bit about yourself and your family (and pets?)

I'm a SAHM to my 3 children: Matthew age 5, Lauren age 4, and Catherine who's 18 months old. I married my high school sweetheart Grant almost 10 years ago, although we did take a 10 year hiatus from each other when we hit college! We lived in St. Louis for a long time, moved to North Carolina over 8 years ago. I miss my family a lot, but I sure do love living so close to the ocean. We have one cat named Bailey, but the kids have really been bugging us for a dog!

How did you get started in scrapbooking? How long have you been scrapbooking?

I did the glue photos in a scrapbook followed up with sticker-sneeze when I was younger. I started scrapbooking "for real" about 5 years ago after my son was born, started out with a couple of those page kits you get at the craft store and it has grown from there.

What is your favorite place to scrap?

Probably in my scrapbook room (I mean dining room), although I do like to go to manias at Archivers with some friends every once in a while, gotta have that girls night out!

What are your favorite scrapping snack and drink?

I love to have a Starbucks Mocha when I scrapbook. I don't usually have snack food when I'm scrapping, but when I do it's gotta be peanut M-n-M's.

What product(s) are you addicted to right now?

The question should be what I'm not addicted to! I have discovered Unity Stamps recently and am in love with them. Of course I've always had a paper addiction, I'm sure I have plenty of paper to last a lifetime. My favorite paper companies right now are Kaiser Craft, Bo Bunny and My Mind's Eye.

What inspires you creatively?

I get a lot of inspiration from sketches. My favorite site is probably Pagemaps, but I also get inspiration from 52 Sketches...52 Weeks, Got Sketch (which I learned about from TTT), and Triple the Sketch. The gallery here at TTT is absolutely amazing, and I have been known to scraplift a little!

What brought you to TTT?

I learned about TTT from one of those kit club posts at Two Peas in a Bucket. I lurked here for quite a while before I finally took the plunge last September and signed up for a membership. I have been so happy here, I just renewed last month!

What do you enjoy the most about TTT?

That's a hard one, because there really is so much to enjoy. Of course I love the kits, Monica does such an awesome job, but I also love the MB and the gallery.

What is on your scrappy wish list?

I would really love some organizational stuff (like cubes, desk, etc) to set up a really cute scrapbook space.

What is something about you that we may not know??

Before I was a SAHM, I was an RN. I worked in the Neonatal ICU, did pharmaceutical sales, but by far the coolest job I ever had was on the Neonatal/Pediatric Transport Team at a Children's Hospital, where I got to fly around in a helicopter or jet, and ride in an ambulance! Yes, I thought I was pretty cool!

Thank you Tammy for sharing a little bit about yourself and we look forward to seeing more of you on the board!
