It’s Scraps N Pieces!
How did January just fly by? 8.5% of 2021 is already in the rearview mirror. I thought retirement was supposed to slow life down. I think I want my money back!
This month’s Designer Spotlight is shining on the creative sister-duo Scraps N Pieces, Lori and Heidi. I had a chance to chat with them and get to know them a little better. Now I’m going to share what I’ve learned.
Jan: How long have you been designing?
Lori: 12 years in May
Jan: So a long time, in scrapper terms! What made you decide to design?
Heidi: Traditional scrapbooking was getting too expensive and it is something we can do as sisters even though we don’t live close to each other.
Jan: I know exactly what you mean, both about the expense and the distance. My sisters and I drink wine together in our respective living rooms. Now, what is your favorite kit currently in your GS store and why?
Heidi: Sweet Magnolia
Lori: Humble and Kind
Jan: Ooh, I can see why! I’d have trouble choosing one over the other. Please tell me about your perfect vacation.
Heidi: I’d travel to Europe to see the old castles and sites.
Jan: That sounds like a long trip! I’ve been to Ireland and would love to see England, Scotland and France. Castles and heritage sites are so engaging. Do you have a green thumb? What do you grow?
Lori: Yes, we have a huge garden and I like to try new things each year. This year we tried butternut squash and cantaloupe along with the regular stuff.
Jan: I never lived anywhere warm enough to grow good melons before and now that I do, I don’t have room. But I’m building a perennial pollinator garden. But speaking of food… If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Heidi: Burgers and fries
Lori: Mexican food
Jan: Mmm, I love a good burger! And tacos. My hubby just likes to eat. And he’s a gamer, so what is your favorite game to play?
Lori: Quacks of Quidlenburg – we are both game board lovers
Jan: More games I’m not familiar with. I must be really out-of-touch! What did you want to be when you were small?
