Read on to get to know the heart of our company!
Yvonne loves to witness the excitement of someone who is seeing a ScrapBox for the first time. She believes that people, especially women, have an innate desire to create. Everyone deserves to have their own creative space where they can dream and explore!
Who inspires you?
My daughters! They amaze me as I watch them tackle life and its challenges. They are so positive and love experiencing new things. Change is harder for me. My husband also inspires me to be better. He is a great listener, kind, patient, and loves helping others to be in a better place than they are. I am also inspired by so many of our customers! I came home from a photo shoot for Meet the Maker and couldn't wait to organize all of my jewelry beads because of seeing the beauty created by Desiree Reinhard of Made By Mermaids.
What completed project are you most proud of?
I love my Santas! For about 10 years I painted several Santas with family, friends and neighbors and love the memories. I keep them on display in my craft room all year round.
What is something you are currently excited about?
Preparing for and teaching my class of 17 year olds at church! All 24 of them inspire me!
Ocean or mountains?
Yes, both!!!! My husband loves to surf so we love the beach and California sunsets, but we also love mountain biking together and have been exploring trails for almost 20 years.
Favorite hobbies (other than crafting☺️)?
I love reading a good book and escaping into another world. I also love my 2 granddaughters and love seeing them discover new things. I really enjoy biking, snowboarding, and listening to or performing inspired music!
Favorite food / Favorite treat?
I love grilled Salmon. My favorite treat has to be my husband's homemade blueberry smoothies.
What part of your craft room is your very favorite?
My new DreamBox, of course!
Life motto? Or words you try to live by?
Look unto God in every thought, doubt not, fear not.
