Hi! My name is Jamie Harder and I am lucky to be a SAHM to two beautiful daughters (who provide me with ample scrap worthy material), and a wife to a very supportive husband! I started scrapbooking about six years ago when my first daughter was born, but the obsession really kicked in about three years ago. I love my creative time and I love to challenge myself to learn new things and to improve my skills. Scrapbooking combines my love of my family, art, and photography into a wonderful way to document life. Through scrapbooking, I have also had the opportunity to discover new friendships with people who share the same passion as I do for this hobby. When I am not scrapbooking you can find me outside; walking my dogs, gardening, running, camping, birding......etc.
This is the first manufacturer design team I have ever applied for and I really wanted to make the team!!!! Being an international applicant, I sat by my computer and waited, hoping to get an email at the 8 PST. Nothing. Then, I got an email....and I was so excited....except it was an advertisement from my LSS. A sale...still exciting...but not the excitement I was seeking:-) So I had pretty much accepted that I did not make it. Then I swung by the GCD studios blog...what?? Heidi is running late?? I still might have a chance??? The nail biting began again. But I decided that staring at my computer wouldn't help, so I did a few chores and when I came back to my computer....an email...THE email!! YIPPPEEEEEE!!! I was so excited.....I did a little dance....my girls joined in! I felt SO HAPPY, SO EXCITED, SO GRATEFUL and SO HONORED!!! I still can't believe it!!!!!!
