Introduction- Ursula

January 13, 2011 in Mixed Media Posts by Ursula Smith

My name is Ursula and I am co-owner of Easy Scraps. I am the crazy art lady.  I am the one with all the pie in the sky ideas, which my partner, Heidi, has to reign in sometimes in order to make me be more realistic. I call Heidi “She Who Knows All” because she is super smart and can run an office, a home, a fund-raiser, you name it, like nobody’s business! We make a pretty good team, I think.

I have two beautiful children and a wonderful husband who is smart, funny, handsome, and cooks great!! That is a lucky thing for the family since my creativity does NOT spill over into my culinary exploits. Quite the opposite, in fact! I have been know to burn parts of my kitchen. Sigh.

My real profession is software engineering, but I absolutely adore stamping and scrapbooking. I love to teach both, and do so at Ink About It, in Westford, MA. Being a busy working Mom leaves little time for scrapbooking, and so that was how Heidi and I first started thinking about the kit idea. Most of the kits we saw on the market were just not what we were looking for- stamped, inked, die cut etc, and super fast to put together. So, why not make kits the way we would like to use them? And thus, Easy Scraps was born. It has been a ton of work, but very rewarding! We hope you enjoy our site, our blogs and our products!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!
