Hi, and welcome to A Dish of Daily Life! I’m excited to connect with you! My first experience with blogging was about photo organizing, which is an industry in which I’ve been involved for years. After blogging there for a few months, I decided I wanted to write about more than simply one topic and so I’ve been in limbo while I decided exactly which direction I wanted to go in with my own blog. This summer, I became the administrator for Appoblogs, which features blogs written by members of the Association of Personal Photo Organizers. I also attended my very first blog conference this summer, BlogHer12, and was hooked.
So here I am, ready to talk about my life as a mom, lessons I’ve learned along the way, my attempts to get my home organized and the clutter under control, and of course, my passion for helping people with their photos and stories!
I’m an avid photographer (love, love, LOVE sports photography…watch for a post on Sports Photography for Sideline Parents soon) and have always been the family historian. I have many albums chronicling my family’s journey! I formally began working with people and their photos in 2003, first as a Creative Memories consultant for many years and in more recent years as the owner of Creative Photo Solutions, offering photo management services to my clients. I’m a member of the Association of Personal Photo Organizers (Appo) and the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO). I’ve been honored to have guest blogged on blogs such as Life Your Way, Ancestral Breezes, I Do DIY Expo, and have been featured in posts from Your Digital Life and PhotoBook Press. I also love to speak about photo organizing.
A little about me…I have 3 children (2 teens and 1 pre-teen), and our family also includes 3 dogs and 4 cats (whose antics you will hear about from time to time). My family loves the outdoors, plays a lot of sports, and we are active in our community. While our photos are organized, we could stand to be a little more organized around the house! We do lead a fairly chaotic life, but all in all, it’s a good life and we feel very blessed!
I love comments and want to invite readers to offer ideas and suggestions here too, so don’t be shy!
