Bio: Hi, my name is Mimi Leinbach and I am 37 years old. Yikes! I am a SAHM to 2 soccer loving boys Nick(12) and Jack(8) and when I am not scrapping I can be sure to be found at a soccer game or helping out at school. I have been married to Josh for over 15 years. He has given me the freedom to indulge myself in this hobby and I just adore him for it. You could say I am obsessed, completely and totally. I have been scrapping for 12+ years now and I would say my style is ever changing. I like to try every technique at least once and some a lot more. I have a passion for patterned paper, to which I just can't seem to get enough. I have been published several times in Creating Keepsakes, Memory Makers Magazine and Books, Scrapbook Trends, Simply Handmade as well as Scrapbooking and Beyond magazine.
How it felt to get the call: I tried to keep myself busy all morning...I am on the east coast so it would be noon here before the calls even started. I ran some errands, and even hit the LSS all trying to pass the time that morning. I got home right about noon...hopped online and stalked the GCD blog and 2 peas board. Of course a telemarketer called and got me so excited, but when I saw the caller ID...my hopes were dashed. Another hour passed, the phone rang again...I looked at the the caller ID again...YAY!!! It was HEIDI!!! I must have sounded a bit nutty, I was so excited! I am not sure how many times I said THANK YOU SO MUCH but I am sure it was ALOT! I bet she got that a lot that day! Now I am floating on cloud 9...we celebrated with a quiet night in, ordered my favorite pizza, and spend the evening scrapping! The perfect night for sure!
