It’s Day Thirteen, and today you get to learn more about Nicole of Sugarplum Paperie. She’s got a sophisticated, classic, papery design style that we know you will love, and her products are known for their gorgeous shabby papers and beautiful color palettes.

 

5 FUN FACTS

  1. When I was in college, I played rugby. I had never played another sport in my life, but suddenly I was all excited about one of the roughest, toughest sports in the world. Our team ROCKED. We were the best in the state!
  2. Before I became a stay-at-home homeschoolin’ momma, I was a paralegal.
  3. I have two degrees (in Legal Studies and Psychology), but I didn’t know what I really wanted to do with my life until I was 30 years old and I discovered digital scrapbooking. I didn’t think it would be “wise” to go to school for art (even though I wanted to when I was 18!), because I didn’t think I could make a living at it. Ha!
  4. I have had four kids, born in four different states — and we are not in the military. Those states are Tennessee, Maryland, Ohio and Florida (EST, for the win!).
  5. Besides scrapbooking, I am also obsessed with knitting, quilting and art journaling.

5 FAVORITE THINGS

  1. Drink: Coffee. Anytime, all the time. But it must be the color of ice cream.
  2. Food: Mexican food is my comfort food. I love a taco full of fresh ingredients!
  3. TV Show: Veronica Mars!
  4. Game: Munchkin (any flavor of it). We own Munchkin, Munchkin Legions, Munchkin Impossible and Adventure Time Munchkin (for the kids). But my favorite one is Munchkin Booty (it’s pirate-themed). I also want to play Munchkin Pathfinder… because I also play Pathfinder. And that’s only because I love World of Warcraft! And… now you know that I am also a huge nerd.
  5. Book: Pride and Prejudice. For me, it’s one of those books you can read over and over again and always find something new to amuse you.

5 FUN FACTS

  1. I’m the second oldest of 11 kids (my parents run an international adoption agency; falling in love is an occupational hazard).
  2. Since we are holding wild animals around here (see Day 1 and Day 4!), I once held a large tarantula in Mexico. I was fine until it started creeping up my arm.
  3. I became a runner in my mid/late 30’s and I’ve run 5 half marathons and Hood to Coast relay twice (plus some 5Ks and 10Ks sprinkled in there). It’s never too late!
  4. I have my Master’s Degree in Education: Curriculum and Instruction and I used to teach middle school. I’m a SAHM now (with 4 crafty businesses), and love being home (by myself, since my two boys are in school!).

  3. Disneyland. I love the magic. I’d like to live in New Orleans Square.
