Join us for our New Adventure!!

Welcome new owner, Marian Dunn!!  

 

Hello SGD!! I'm so excited about this new adventure and look forward to continuing on with the amazing business Sheila has created! Let me tell you a bit about myself .. my name is Marian Dunn - I am a wife of 25yrs and mother to three beautiful children. Well they are young adults now! 22, 17 and 13! When did that happen lol!! I have worked in the financial industry in many aspects from teller to auditor to bookkeeping. I started scrapbooking roughly 22 yrs ago. Going from trying to get every picture in one page to single photo pages, changed the way I actually took pictures. I also love to make cards! I worked for Stampin Up for many years then opened my own little store offering classes for cards/ scrapbooking and many other paper crafts. I also held Friday night crops & events. I lived in Sarnia for the majority of my life & also lived in Dublin Ireland for 6 yrs. I moved to Kitchener 5 yrs ago. Hubby got a great job at the University of Waterloo. Oh forgot to mention, he is a Red Seal Chef. Lol!! I also worked with CTMH. I simply LOVE papercrafting and can't wait to start this journey!! I thank Sheila for being so wonderful in this transition. We hope to make it as smooth of a transition as possible with little disruption to the great service Sheila has provided you all for the past 15 yrs. Thank you so much for this opportunity to do something I'm truly passionate about full time!!  Now let's get crafting!  

 

 

 

 

A little note from Scrappin' Sheila

What a ride it has been! I started this business almost 15 years ago. It has changed and evolved in so many ways. Who'd ever think I would sell stamps, right Andrea?!! LOL! I believe in this hobby so much! Since the age of 15 I have had a fascination with how photos were placed in albums. I used magazines, wallpaper, paint chips - anything I could get my hands on. I didn't even really know it was called "scrapbooking" back then. I just knew there was a better way to tell my story and share my memories than just a photo in a book.

The people I have met .. wow. Not sure how else to articulate it than, wow! Women from coast to coast and everywhere in-between. The friendships that are formed through this hobby are hands down the very best! We lose ourselves to paper, glue and memories. Our new owner, Marian, is so ready to keep this going!! Let's keep her super busy and continue to support Canadian small businesses. You will love her as much as I do!! I hope to see you all at one of Marian's upcoming events, crops, retreats or just out and about! Without each of you SGD would never have grown to be what it is. Thank you from the bottom of my heart & keep on scrappin' girls; it's good for the heart & soul!! I will see you soon!!

Remember to create a memory & hug someone you love each and every day!! Sending you all super big hugs!! "Scrappin' Sheila" xoxoxo!
