My name is Linda, also known as Lintsi in the online community. I am a (mostly) stay-at-home-mom of three little boys (soon four!) and I live in the UK , however I am originally from Finland. I spend all my free moments in my craft room – I am a passionate scrapbooker who loves patterned papers, fabric, mixed media and to try different techniques. I find scrapbooking relaxing and delightful, I simply love it! It is a little getaway for me in the middle of sometimes crazy and busy everyday life that helps me to rewind, relax and feel refreshed and motivated again to run the house and take care of all the duties I have as a mother.
I am happy to be able to share my passion by instructing scrapbooking classes in a local craft store where I also work every now and then. I am also happy to be a member of a few Design Teams (see below). My next goal in the scrap world is to design for some magazines and manufacturers.
