Let's Meet a Gingerscraps CT Member, Misty! (with a freebie!)
What’s your name and digiscrap blog address? Misty O’Brien – http://scrappaperie.blogspot.com/
Tell us a little about your family. I’m 26, married to Dan (27) and we have two boys – Ian (2) and Aidan (6 months). Dan and I went to elementary school together but didn’t “meet” until high school. We stayed friends after high school and started dating 5 years later (2005). We married after within 6 months of dating. Dan and Aidan have the same birth date – September 11th.
Do you work outside the home & if so what do you do? I do not work outside the home. I have been a SAHM for a year now. I love being at home with the boys.
When did you start Digi-scrapping and who taught you? I started digi scrapping about a year and a half ago. No one taught me, I just started playing around with freebies. My husband taught me Photoshop though.
Are you on any creative teams? Yes. I am on Gingerscraps CT, Polka Dot Plum’s CT, and Sunshine Studio Scraps’ CT.
Do you design at all? I just started designing. Ginger has already taught me so much and I am grateful to her. I also enjoy learning from the other designers on the Gingerscraps team. Everyone’s style is so unique and it’s wonderful.
What is your favorite challenge here at GingerScraps? My favorite challenge is the Template Challenge.
Who are your favorite three designers? Gingerscraps, Scrappy Cocoa, and Polka Dot Plum
What are some of your must have elements? Glitter. I like sparkles. I also love ribbons and glass elements.
Whose gallery here at GingerScraps do you just love? Oh wow. There are so many ladies in that gallery now! I really love Julie’s (JulieMomof4) Layouts and the pics of her hybrid projects and recently Angie has been posting some inspiring layouts – I love the way she puts things together. All the CT girls really work hard too and their galleries are fantastic.
What’s your favorite kit in the store right now? I am drawn to Ginger’s White Cherry Tea Kit.
If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be? I would not be such a procrastinator! I work best under deadlines and pressure though.
What is the one word that best describes you? Compassionate
Out of all your LO’s so far, what are your favorite 2 & why?

I love this one because it’s a rare picture of me and Ian. I am hardly ever in front of the camera, always behind it. I just really adore how it turned out.

I love this LO because it’s of my husband and son, playing in the yard one late afternoon late summer. The weather was perfect and I loved playing photographer. I get warm fuzzies just looking at this LO.
Who is the most important person in your life? Obviously my husband and kids and faith are the most important to me, I would never put them behind anything else. So after them, I will say my sister is the most important person – I can trust her with anything.
What is something that not many people know about you? I have some weird kind of sixth sense. It’s creepy. In high school, I had a dream that a classmate (who I had never spoken to before and knew nothing about her) wore a tiara to school. Two days later she came walking in with a tiara on. (and No, it wasn’t a Halloween). I still don’t even know why she was wearing it! I have weird dreams like that a lot.
If you could travel anywhere where would you go? Right now I would take a cruise. Dan and I put off a real honeymoon since we got married on the beach.
When you were little what did you dream of being when you grew up? I wanted to be a forensic pathologist. No joke. Even before all the CSI shows. I went to college to go pre-med and when I finally got into the science courses I realized it was a no go. I just couldn’t get into it. (Maybe that’s why I’m being creative now! Lol)
What is your favorite food? Chocolate Milkshakes. I drank one every night for the last 4 weeks of both my pregnancies.
How did you pick you user name? my forum user name is my nickname Mis and my last name OBrien
What do you like doing with your family? We like doing stuff for the kids – traveling, parks, amusement parks, camping - all that good stuff.
Where is your favorite place to be? At home with my family.
What are three things that are important to you? Faith, Family, Health
Is there anything you would change about your life? Just the medical issues I’m facing right now. I just added hypothyroidism and pituitary problems to my trigeminal neuralgia.
What are you afraid of? My children missing or dying before me.
Do you collect anything? Nope.
