I have always enjoyed making things and working with my hands. I have done a little bit of everything when it comes to crafting, but every time I made something I couldn’t help myself from thinking “How many doilies does one person need?!” When I was introduced to scrapbooking nearly 12 years ago, I immediately knew I had found a creative outlet with a purpose! I discovered that I could work and play with color, texture, & dimension as well as design composition and incorporate these with my photos and memories to create something that I could enjoy for years to come. I love to scrapbook just about anything or anyone in my family or my friends. I really love to tell the story! I have also in the last year or so become extremely interested in creating altered projects using scrapbook supplies. From altering ice cream containers to ribbon packaging, I just love what you can do with the unexpected object to personalize it and create a work of art! Scrapbooking and paper crafting are such a natural fit for me and to say I am addicted to it is probably an understatement!
I am married to my best friend & love of my life Danny. We live in a small college town in southern Missouri along the Mississippi River and I work as a physical therapist in a local hospital. We have a horse named Woody (however, it’s actually my husband’s horse!). I love spending time with my husband, working out, reading, camping, cooking and gardening!
I was at work when I got a call from my husband telling me, "some lady named Heidi called" and she wants you to call her. I was like..."Seriously?!". So, with my hands shaking, I dialed her on my cell. When she answered the phone and said "this is Heidi Sonboul" I just wanted to freak out! On the inside I was doing the happy dance, jumping up and down and screaming!!!! Why didn't I really do this? One small problem....I was at work with co-workers and patients within ear shot, so I had to stay calm and professional. It was so hard to hold in all the excitement until after work and then the happy dance was out of control! I was totally jumping up and down and screaming like a fool! I felt so excited and so blessed all at the same time!
