12 Days of Home for the Holidays Welcomes Candy Rosenberg

Candy Rosenberg has been paper crafting since she was a child and comes from a creative family of artists, cartoonist and painters. She has been in the scrapbooking industry since 2007 and during this time has been in online marketing, design and education team coordination, product development and commission work for a number of manufacturers and magazines.

There is no mistaking her style; a blend of vintage, shabby chic and mixed media all inked up, fussy cut and layered. When she first started out her style was not like "others," however, no matter what she never compromised her style and now her style is more mainstream than ever. Candy tells us the only reason why she does what she does is to inspire others, teaching is her passion.

I would advise not to say "I do not have a creative bone in my body" in her presence! She is known for pulling her scissors, a bit of paper and adhesive out of her purse and perform an impromptu "mini" class to prove to you that every single person is creative...your style is all that you have to practice.

Candy is blessed to still have one teenager left in the home and the creative bug has spread to her and her older sister. The youngest is a duck tape artist and attends CHA with her mother, the oldest daughter is a student at the Art Institute of Portland for Photography and Design (which makes moms job easier with plenty of photos). Not to leave out her son who is in the Navy, he is creatively navigating the waters.

It is such a pleasure to be a part of Debby Lewis' 12 Days of Home for the Holidays.  

This year is going to be very different for our family, as it was last year as well. After being together and married for nearly 20 years, my now ex husband decided that he no longer wanted to be a productive member of our family and take my life and hurt my child nearly 2 years ago and is no longer a part of our lives. But like all things, it happened for a reason, it allowed our family the freedom to get out and move on with our lives.

The holidays last year was the first time it was just the immediate family, meaning myself and two of my three children along with family I hadnt seen in quite awhile which was a real treat. It was very quiet and full of love and thankfulness.

This year I will have a few more family members around now that mom has moved back from Kentucky and the possible holiday leave for my son from the Navy (fingers crossed) and close friends, should be nice and a bit more noisy!!

I am so thankful to be alive, well and with my family and friends and that the last chapter of my life is over.  I am so excited for our new beginnings...Happy Holidays from our family to yours!

Be inspired. Always.

Photo Tip of the Day
Observe the rule of thirds. The rule of thirds has to do with composition and can best be explained by drawing a tic-tac-toe board over your viewfinder. Make sure the subject of your photo rest within the intersecting lines. (Example below.) This little technique will add more interest in your photo rather than just simply centering the subject.

  37. It is great that you found the strength to carry on. My father was an alcoholic and ruined every holiday. I always hoped that she would one day leave him but she never did.
