Hi I am Sara Zenger and I am honored to be a part of The Paper Variety Team! I live in Northern NY with my husband, our one 7yr old son (Cole) and our new puppy (Bauer).
I have been scrapbooking for about eight years and have loved every minute of it! I dont think I have a particular style but I do gravitate to making things with dimension - I go to through pop-dots and foam tape like you would not believe! My favorite manufactures are Sassafrass Lass, Crate Paper, October Afternoon, Pink Paislee just to name a few.
I am a craft alcoholic! I love creating scrapbooking layouts but that is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to my crafty love. I love to make cards, home decor, gift bags, banners, playing with fabric and more! I am blessed to say that I have made many new friends both locally and online since my crafty days started! These friendship mean so much to me! There is nothing better than sharing something your passionate about with others that share the same passion.
I organize monthly craft days at my home (Scrap N Chat Days is what we call them) for a group of about 20 local girls. Then once a year I organize a weekend long (Friday- Sunday) retreat where we all stay over and all our meals are provided there are goodie bags and prizes galore! This past October I hosted my 8th Crop Til You Drop Retreat to 79 girls! I love doing this for them!
I wish I could say I crafted all day but I do have a 'real world' job as a manager of a convenient store. When I am not working or crafting I enjoy being outdoors with my family, working out, reading, baking/ cooking or taking photos!
Here are a few of my favorite crafty projects!
