May Member of the Month

Welcome to the month of May and that means we have a new member of the month.  This month we will be spotlighting our fabulous member Karen!!  She has been a part of us for exactly one year this month and jumped right in with both feet and has become a treasured member of our My Scraps and More family.

Lets learn a little bit about Karen!

I live in Port Huron, Michigan which is about 60 miles NE of Detroit on Lake Huron. My older sister lives here in town and I live in the family home. Both of my sons live here in town too
My daughter,husband and her family live near the Michigan/Ohio border. I have 2 sons and 1 daughter, 4 grandsons and 1 granddaughter and 1 great grandson and 2 great granddaughters. I'm retired but work more now remodeling the house, gardening, and researching our genealogy.

I started scrapping about 7 years ago but not on a continual basis until my daughter, Terri really got me hooked around 5 years ago. Now I try to keep up on the trends and hunt for new " objects" to use on my pages. My style is simple and clean but I also get Shabby depending on my mood or the photo.
I actually have three blogs going but never find time to keep them caught-up.


1. I'm a hippie from the 60s. I reuse, refurbish, renew and remodel everything. When I throw out trash, it really is worthless. I work with groups cleaning the river and will NOT use plastic bags for my groceries.
2. I like to cook and try new recipes. My favorite drink is either vanilla or cherry Coke.
3. I'm political. I support cleaning the environment, animal's rights and saving historical landmarks especially locally.
4. I collect camels! (Stuffed, porcelain, wooden, plastic, metal, photos, whatever) . I also collect Coke Dinnerware, glasses, trays and signs.
5. I would like to visit New Orleans, China and Denmark.
Here are a few of the wonderful pages she has created.
