Shannon Tidwell


Name/nickname: Shannon Tidwell

Where you live: The Woodlands, Texas

A brief statement about your household: I am a lucky mommy to three wild, but adorable children,  Maddox (10), Crew (6) and Grayson (4), and married for 15 years to a man who keeps us all sane, Chad.

What is your crafty style and expertise: My style is all over the place! I would say that I use a lot of bold colors, mix unexpected patterns and products, and just generally try to have fun! I have been trying to dress myself like I scrap!

How long have you been stamping: I have been scrapbooking in a formal way since 2000, but I loved collecting and collaging as a teenager....and when I say collaging I mean on the back of my closet door.:)

Favorite color: red

Where do you draw your design inspiration from: I get inspiration from all over the place. Catalogs are where I think I get the most though.

Other design teams: I have been a Garden Girl at for 11 years now. I was a member of the BHG Creative Team in 2005. I am currently on the BasicGrey DT as well.

Favorite sweet treat: Twizzlers. But I'm trying not to buy them because I eat the whole bag!

Favorite salty treat: Hummus. I know it's good for you...but I seem to want to eat the whole container!

One random/fun fact about you:  Not sure how fun it is....but I am an avid swimmer....and trying to be an avid runner. Typing it out makes it more real and I will have to try harder to live up to it.:)
