Hi! My name is Kate Vickers. I am a wife and mother of 3 small children, ages 7, 3 and 2. I live in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. I have scrapbooked seriously for about 5 years now, but I have been interested in arts and crafts since I was old enough to hold a crayon.
My scrapbooking style is a bit ecclectic and varied. It depends on what I'm in the mood for, who has been influencing me lately and the papers and photos I'm working with. I love doing single page 12x12 layouts, the occassional double page layout, cards, altered items and minis - pretty much any craft involving paper!
My other passion is horseback riding, however, it’s a very expensive and time-consuming sport. I have put that on hold for a few years while my children are young. As every parent knows, young children are also very expensive and time-consuming!
My real job is part-time freelance Web project management, design and development. I have my own small business – Vickers Media (pardon the dust and cobwebs - my Web site is in serious need of being re-designed!), and I work part-time as a Web Project Manager at a marketing company in Mississauga. I have also been lucky to be able to do freelance work for some other major Canadian marketing firms. My specialty is open source content management systems like Joomla and WordPress. What I love most about my job is that I make my own hours and I still have a lot of free time to do the things that I love, like spending time with my family and scrapbooking!
Here are some of my favourite projects:
