SISTER Sunday - Week 21

Can't believe we're into September already! Time for our newest Sister of the Week :-)

Please welcome Erika Schumacher, from Chesapeake, VA.

Erika has been married for 10 years and is mother to Ethan, 11, Kendall 7 and Coda 18 months. Her kids now call themselves the 7-11 Schumacher’s. She is a SAHM, who works two jobs from home, other than being a full time mom, wife, friend, mentor and referee.

Here is Erika's layout from Challenge 19:


A little about Erika:

Describe your scrap space. Do you like/dislike it? My scrap space is in the hub room of the house. The family room. I installed a shelving system to the wall, the bottom shelf is a little wider, and I use it as my desk. From there, the most important items are next and then so on. I love that I can still be in where the action of the family is, but spend my time how I love to. I feel like I am not missing out, but being inspired and reminded why I scrap.

What are your favourite colours to scrapbook with? Greens and Browns. Brown with anything!!!!

Do you enjoy other crafts and/or hobbies? I am a craft-a-holic cross-stitch, knit, crochet, origami, sew and I am sure there is more.

What scrapbook magazines do you read? I do not have any magazine subscriptions, so anything that I read has been either passed down to me or bought individually off the shelf. I really prefer to browse the internet and go to Scrapbooks Etc., Memory Makers, and Creating Keepsakes.

How thick is your cardstock and paper stash? Probably 2 feet high

Are you an organized or messy scrapper? I am an organized scrapper. I like to put things away after I am done and start with a clean slate.

Anything else you want to share? I cannot express how honoured I am to be a “Sister”. So many things have been happening with this hobby and me and I am so overwhelmed with excitement. It really is a creative high. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you, Deanne, Carla and Susan, for choosing me to join such an elite, creative and talented group of women. My heart will forever hold this bond of “Sisterhood.”


We are glad to call you a sister :-)

Sisterhood...a celebration of the he{ART}
