Jill's Profile

About

My name is Jill and I'm currently in my 4th year of a PhD program in Developmental Psychology. Goodness knows that leaves me with a need to relax and unwind - enter my scrabooking obsession! I've always enjoyed scrapbooking recreationally, and found them to be wonderful, personalized gifts. My first one was for my Bat Mitzvah, and it sort of just grew from there. I've made them as gifts for significant others and friends, to commemorate vacations, holidays, and, most recently weddings!

This past summer, I got married to a wonderful guy and went on a once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon to Italy. As if that wasn't exciting enough, FOUR of my best friends also got married the same summer. I was in FIVE weddings in SIX months! It was definitely chaotic, but so much fun to be a bride at the same time as so many of my closest friends.

This past summer, I got married to a wonderful guy and went on a once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon to Italy. As if that wasn't exciting enough, FOUR of my best friends also got married the same summer. I was in FIVE weddings in SIX months! It was definitely chaotic, but so much fun to be a bride at the same time as so many of my closest friends. Not only that, but it provided me with tons of opportunity to practice my wedding scrapbooks - stay tuned for those to be added. As if that wasn't crazy enough, we then all put on our dresses one last time to celebrate the "summer of weddings", which resulted in an epic photo shoot at a local petting zoo. The pictures were beautiful, and I've loved reliving the experience as I work on a scrapbook to celebrate our matrimonial adventures.

Recently I decided that it would be great to share my books with other people who are looking for a way to preserve their memories. I've found they make great and memorable gifts, in fact, I made one for my husband for our first anniversary. From time to time we flip back through it and remember all the great memories of our first year together.

I'm about to start my dissertation which will be another crazy adventure, but one that I'm looking forward to. When I'm not doing schoolwork or scrapbooking, I love to read fantasy novels and watch Disney movies (hence my shop name). I also enjoy spending time with my husband, Mike, and our two cats - Newton and Copernicus (better known as Newt and Copper). Newt and Copper are a big help with scrapbooking, and by that I mean sitting on the paper and stealing the ribbon. We (my furry assistants and I) hope to be able to create something beautiful for you soon!
