Short bio: Hi Everyone! I'm Katie Ehmann. I live in Michigan with my awesome husband and two dress-wearing, super frilly, always girly, princess obsessed girls, Lily and Maya. I'm not quite sure how that happened because I love playing soccer and wearing anything but dresses. I am a school social worker, scrapbooker, wanna-be photographer and do-er of all things crafty. I love vintage cameras, typewriters, spray paint, and estate sales. You can also find me watching really super intellectual, high quality reality television on a regular basis. I am ridiculously super happy to be designing for American Crafts!

Favorite thing to scrap: My girls (of course) and travel photos.

Favorite American Crafts product: Tie between patterned paper and Thickers. I have a whole crate full of Thickers in all colors, fonts and alphabetty goodness!

5 fun facts:

1. I play soccer at least once a week, year round, but I didn't start playing until I was an adult!

2. I've never had Coke or Pepsi. Like ever in my life.

3. I am a life-long Michigander.

4. I'm obsessed with Disney World and am going on an adults only girls trip there later this summer.

5. I didn't start scrapbooking seriously until January 2012. After that it just sorta took over my life, and an entire room in my house!
