Scrapbooking Angel

My very pregnant daughter Angie Dunn plays an active role in the $4 billion per year scrapbooking industry. It never ceases to amaze me how a simple concept like putting family photos into books has blossomed into such a dynamic industry!

Angie teaches a monthly scrapbooking class named “Simplicity” for Scrapbooks, Etc., the largest scrapbooking retail store in Mesa, Arizona, where she also works as a retail associate. Yesterday, the family gathered at the store to help her produce the 400 kits she will need for this month’s four classes.

Angie also designs layouts for Bazzill Basics Paper, the premier scrapbooking supplies wholesaler in the industry. We first met Doug and Marti Jones, who own Scrapbooks, Etc. and Bazzill Basics Paper, when we moved to Arizona 15 years ago. Doug had a little plastics engraving business and Marti cut out wooden items for crafts in their garage. Then they caught the Scrapbooking wave and became industry leaders. It took lots of work, much perseverance, many talented people like Angie, and the good fortune of being in the right place at the right time. Thanks, Doug and Marti, for giving Angie a chance to blossom as the Scrapbooking Angel!
