My name is Karen Yagel and I’m a happily retired crafter.  I was born and raised in New Orleans, LA and I’m currently living in Slidell, LA.  I’m single and live with my two “Yorkie” girls (Bella and LillyBelle) who are frequently featured in my scrapbook layouts.  I retired from my job of 36 years in 2017 and I’m so happy to finally have the time to spend on papercrafting.
I don’t really have a style of scrapbooking but just let the supplies, the pictures and the story that I’m scrapping lead me to the finished page.  I’m addicted to watching YouTube videos and learning new techniques and I have a passion for sharing my love of papercrafting with others.  Shopping and organizing my crafty supplies are my other favorite hobbies and I have a serious addiction for paper and washi tape … so much fun!!!
Besides scrapbooking and cardmaking, I love chocolate, coffee, reading, embroidery, decorating, playing cards and spending time with friends and family.
I’ve always wanted to blog but just never had time since I was always busy working. Now that I’m retired, expect to see me posting blogs and videos … I’ve never been so happy or had so much fun in my life. I’m really enjoying retirement and hoping that it will continue for many years to come!!!

Here are some pics of my two beautiful girls … Bella and LilyBelle.  They are sisters and will be 9 years old in October.  I take a lot of pictures of them and so they end up in a lot of my scrapbook layout posts … I have so much fun scrapbooking pictures of them.
