Hi, my name is Edi Royer. I live in rural Iowa with my boyfriend, Jesse, and our dog, Harley. For my full-time job, I work in a factory that makes semi transmissions as a machine operator. I am also getting my MBA. In my free time (when I'm not scrapping) I enjoy snowmobiling, mud dragging and having fun with my family and friends. I like to think I'm a mix of feminine and fun :)
How long have you been creating?I started paper crafting about 12 years ago. I started by making hand-stamped greeting cards for family and friends. I then entered into scrap booking about 10 years ago. The company I bought all my stamps from started selling scrap booking supplies and I was instantly hooked!
What is your favorite part of your creating?I love making albums that people will have around for generations to come. I love it that people ask me to preserve their lives for them in meaningful scrapbooks. It is a really special craft. And of course, I love the creative side as well...trying new things and making a mess :)
Where can people go to see your work?I have a shop on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5556196and a blog http://memoriesforlifescrapbooks.blogspot.com/I also do a couple of craft shows every year in the Southwest Iowa area. I will post about them on my blog when they get closer.
Any helpful tips for other artists/crafters?Enjoy the process :) This is my personal scrap booking mantra. I don't ever want it to turn into a job. I do this because I love it and I want to help others with my love of crafting.
