First Blog Post for Rock Girl Designs

Happy 2011!  

As part of my 2011 goals I set for myself was to create a blog separate from my other business, Crabby Cakes Studios.  As the part owner and designer of Crabby Cakes Studio, I wanted have the ability to get more personal and be more "me", not so business like 100% of the time.  Please do check out my other  blog at CrabbyCakesCrafts.blogspot.com to see what we are creating and selling!  

I have been wanting to create Rock Girl Designs for a really long time, but have been in conflict with myself about Crabby Cakes.  I love blogging and sharing my ideas and creations.  Sometimes those creations do not fit in the CCS business model nor does personal business LOL.  So I took a huge leap today and started Rock Girl Custom Designs blog!
This is me! 

Why Rock Girl Custom Designs??.... and little about me.

I have always been a rocker.  My mother recounts that I use to rock myself back and forth as if I had music in my head as a baby!  I am all about rock n roll and love the old rock-a-billy style.  Creating little skullies and cherries creations is one of my favorite things to incorporate in my layouts.

So what makes me a Rock Girl?  Probably nothing...I have an attitude, I have 2 tattoos (one rose on my ankle and Tinker Bell on my shoulder) and I am ready to add another soon!   I love Marilyn Monroe, Tinker Bell, the rock-a-billy styles.

I truly love scrapbooking and being an artist,  Often I find myself up in my purple loft for hours without even noticing the time.  I commute everyday to work via train and tend to brain storm all my ideas on the Metra.

For example:  I have had this idea to create a scrapbook using only song titles .....so that is something else a little rock n roll.   I am trying to figure my next tattoo.  I am deciding which color to paint my purple loft, designing a line of calendar layouts for the year....it goes on and on!   

Cory James
I am 38 years old, married to a loving and devoted hubbie named Brett.   Cory James is our musical genius of a son.  He is 20 years old and literally can pick up any instrument and within hours sound like he has been playing it for years.  God has given him the gift of a golden ear! 

These are my fur-babies, which I am sure I will be sharing lots of pictures and stories with you all.  I don't know if you are a pet owner, but if you are, you know that our pets are like our children that act like silly three year olds most of the time.  Mr. Pedro is "mommy's special boy" and Miss Athena is our scruff-a-muffin girl.

 Can you guess which one is Pedro and which one is Athena?

Tune in again, I promise not to disappoint!  I will be focusing on the Cricut cartridge Rock Princess and plan on having some blog candy too!

Keep Rocking and Scrapping
