A little about Keely:
Hi! My name is Keely Yowler from Georgetown, Kentucky. I've been scrapbooking/papercrafting for about 12 years. I've always been a crafty girl who would try any creative way to express myself. I remember decorating the backseat of my mom's new car with chalks when I was about 4. That didn't go over so well. My creative inspirations are my supportive hubby, Kevin, our 5 kiddos, 10 dogs, and 2 cats. There is never a dull moment or lack of photo op in my house. I am currently designing for Kiki Art, Scrap Tiffany, and Queen Kat Design stamps.
One product I can't live without? Colorbox Catseye Ink Dark Brown. I'm an ink-a-holic.
When are you most creative and why? I love to create in the evenings while watching TV. I spend all day mulling over creative ideas and can't wait to put them on paper once the workday is finished, the family is fed, and hubby is settled.
Are you messy or organized when you scrap? Mmmm...how do you define messy? I prefer to call it creative chaos :) Yes, my desk is covered with tons of paper, ink pads, tools, and the occasional cat.
3 random things about you.
1. Hubby and I love to attend auctions and antique sales. We are both pickers and love to bring home unwanted treasures.
2. I'm a huge animal lover and would bring home every cat and dog at the pet store, if I could.
3. By day, I work from home as a nurse medical reviewer for an insurance company. It's the best job ever.

One product you cannot live without? I cannot live without my Scrapbook Adhesives tape runners, my ruler, and my brown Maya Mist.
Are you a messy or organized scrapper? I am messy during the process of putting something together, a desk covered with all kinds of scrappy goodies. However, I always have to clean up & reorganize between each project :)
Do you have a craft room, closet, corner? I am super fortunate to have a whole room dedicated to scrapping :) I am still in the process of getting it exactly how I want it but it is a great space with lots of storage.
