Meet Michelle!

Michelle Magana

Hi! My name is Michelle Magana and I am currently in Washington State, for now. I am a military wife, so home is where the Army sends us. I have been married for 13 years to my wonderful husband Jorge and we have two amazing children Isaac and Isabella. Scrapbooking is my creative outlet, an escape and definitely has helped me get through some of the hardest time's of being a military wife. Being away from home, family, friends and most of all my husband for long periods of time, this hobby has helped me open doors in opportunities I would have never had and meet friends I would have never met. So it's not just a hobby it has been a lifeline as well.
Contests/Publications: I have only been published in an E-zine ScrapStreet.com)

One product you cannot live without: Glue, without out it I would be nothing in scrapbooking.

When are you most creative and why? I am most creative when my kids are either at school or in bed. I need it to be some what quiet for me to be able to scrap. I listen to music or have the tv on.
Describe your style:
When I am not scrapbooking, you can find me cooking up a storm, taking pictures or watching my fave reality shows. I call myself "Jane of All Trades" because I like to dabble in a lil bit of everything. A do it yourself kinda gal and a bargain shopper. Having said that, my scrapbook style reflects my personality. I am not tied down to one style, I do what feels good at the moment. So my pages can be simple to elaborate, clean to grunge and everything in between. 
Do you have a craft corner, closet or room? I share my scrap space with our computer room/ living room. I have a little folding desk that I can put away when company comes over.
Is that spot messy or clean? When I don’t expect company I leave as it is (meaning messy) but it is always picked up or things put away when friends come over. I have an Expedit that holds the majority of my stuff so it is very easy to clean.
3 random things about you:
1. I worry and stress too much about everything
2. I LOVE to cook and feed people
3. People always say how funny, fun, loud and crazy I am. But deep inside I am very sensitive and get very shy
