My name is Michele Kovack. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for the last 16 years. I currently teach 5th grade and love it! I have two beautiful children, Cortney (14) & Kyle (12). They inspire me everyday! I also have a cutie pie Bischon/Poodle mix named Skippers. We rescued him from the shelter last summer and couldn't be happier that he is a part of our family.
I started scrapbooking about 14 years ago, shortly after my daughter's birth. We had been informed that she was visually, mentally and physically impaired. It was a lot to deal with, especially since it was our first child. I think scrapbooking became a creative outlet for me. It became a chance to express myself, whether it be grief or joy. It also made me treasure all of her milestones and accomplisments, and to focus on the positive! My son was born two years later, and he was such a character that I scrapbooked all the silly things he did! From scrapbooking, came the cardmaking/stamping end of it! I had so many supplies that it seemed ridiculous to buy a card from Hallmark. So my obsession with homemade cards began! I love making altered projects too now! I can't seem to throw anything away these days. I hoard it all, in hopes that someday I can "alter" it! : )
I am excited to be on this talented DT and can't wait for all the fun challenges ahead!
And here is a sample of Michele's work.....
