This week’s member spotlight is: Sherry Owens
Sherry aka ‘FunAuntSherry′
I remember growing up, asking my grandma all kinds of questions about the times she’d seen. She grew up in the teens and was a mother in the twenties and again in the forties. She saw so much history and I was always curious about how she dressed, entertained and lived. She never answered my questions, whether it was unpleasant for her or she just found it uninteresting, I’ll never know.
I got a box of photos after she passed and I was left with a lot of the same unanswered questions. Some photos labeled such as “Mother and Me, Yesterday” drove me to be more attentive to the details in my own life… and were screaming to be identified and preserved.
Being a crafter at heart, finding out about the world of scrapbooking I knew that this was the best solution to the problem of identifying and preserving those old photos and keeping track of current photos as well. I’ve since evolved from just preserving old photos to creating new memories of every-day life with the art of scrapbooking.
I love being able to delve into my art and immerse myself in the feel of the paper and all the textural trendy supplies. I really get into the physical aspect of sanding edges and the visual trick of using ink to add dimension.
I notice my style evolves as the industry does and from being surrounded by so many talented scrapers with such great ideas. I have been so inspired by challenges and members since joining SBCH that I’ve been able to produce some extremely memorable “memories” and I really enjoy the camaraderie that can be found here at any hour on any day.
Here is some of Sherry’s awesome work:
