Objective: To live, love and create! Scrapbooking has not only become a way for me to keep my family's memories alive, but to relax and express myself creatively. I have had the fortune of meeting a lot of fabulous friends and providing inspiration to other scrappers! Sharing my work with others is one of the best ways to accomplish this.
A Little About Me:
My name is Trish Harwick. I have finally been rescued from armpit of America (Enterprise, AL if you are not familiar with the area) where I was stranded for the past 2 years while my Army Apache pilot husband attended flight school. We have been living in Cameron, NC, Fort Bragg, for almost 3 years. In addition to my military spouse duties, I am a FT Speech Pathologist, a Mom of 4 beautiful children and an avid scrapper!
My Mom claims that I began scrapping as soon as I could cut and paste. I started with magazines and made up stories; moved onto my photography loving father’s family photos and brochures and made the transition to “modern” scrapping with the birth of my first daughter in 2000. In addition to scrapping, I enjoy photography, reading, shopping and spending time with my family.
I have taught scrap booking, altered item and handmade book classes at Scrapbook Creations in Virginia Beach, VA and Scrapbook Your Life in San Diego, CA. I love to teach, as I think it is a chance to share my passion with others, while at the same time meeting wonderful new friends!
