Prepare to be INSPIRED!
Hi! My name is Kory Dordea! I am 26 years old and I reside down south in beautiful Marietta, Georgia with my ultra supportive husband of two years, Ed. We have a purebred mutt named Tana and a beautiful blue-eyed kitty named Tucker. I have a degree in Elementary Education and taught the third grade in Las Vegas for two years before we decided to pack up and move to the Atlanta area. Since our move, I have become a stay-at-home-wife, which I LOVE because now I have lots of time to focus on scrapbooking. I hope to fulfill my dream of becoming a mommy very soon!
Believe it or not, I have been scrapbooking for 12 years! I first became interested in scrapbooking during my freshman year of highschool when I attended a Creative Memories party. Lucky for me, my mom has always been crafty, so she bought me some basic supplies and fueled the fire. Although they sometimes make me cringe, I enjoy looking back at my older projects, not only to see how I have grown and changed, but also to see how the scrapbooking and paper arts industry has evolved. Where scrapbooking and paper crafts used to be a part-time hobby to me, they are now an absolute obsession. Creating art is my passion and a creative outlet that allows me to preserve my family's memories for generations to come!
I am so excited and honored to be a part of the Say it With Letters design team and I hope to be able to provide a little bit of inspiration to others. Besides being on the design team here at SIWL, I also do design team work for Simply Obsessed, Moments to Remember, AC Bailey Designs, and Serendipity Kits. And although I just started submitting my work for publication back in July, I've already been published over 40 times, including a fabulous altered art project featuring SIWL wooden letters that will debut in the April 2008 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine! I guess you could say that I've been pretty lucky so far! :-)
This BRAND NEW lettering style for us can be found HERE. Kory has posted more about her letters HERE. Visit her blog for tons of inspiration!
