Hi, I am Neftali and I am 26 years young, living in Sunny California. I am a Mexico born Cali-Girl, as I have lived here all my life. I am married to a hard-working man I met since I was ten years old and we have a beautiful two year old son.
My passions are Scrapbooking, Crocheting, and doing anything that is considered Crafty. I think that my love for paper crafting started when I was a teenager in high school and a church friend introduced me to this magical thing called: Scrapbooking. It all started there and it has been a journey full of finding myself and my crafting abilities since those early days.
My fear of getting messy with paper didn’t last too long, as I began buying and hoarding anything that was meant for paper crafting. I started off by making Smash Books, journals, and altered gifts for friends and colleagues. After having my son in 2015, however, my whole perspective changed and I realized how important is was for me to keep all of my son’s memories alive by scrapbooking them with love and lots of pretty paper (of course!).
However, I wanted to share all of this with other people. I wanted to reach those people, who might feel intimidated like I once did, to get out there and make something. I wanted a place to INSPIRE. A place to CREATE. And a place to GROW.
I started my Scrappy Instagram account and this here Blog in April of 2015 and a year later started my Youtube Channel in April of 2016. I have grown so much and learned so much more. But my most absolute favorite part about this scrappy adventure of mine is that I have found a wonderful community of like minded people and have met very many amazing friends who have opened unknown doors for me.
At the beginning of 2017 I was offered a position to be part of the Gossamer Blue Design Team. I am very honored to be part of a team of such talented paper crafters and memory keepers. Not to mention, how amazing all the kits are every month!
I believe that my passion for paper crafting has found a very profound place in my heart and I do it because it truly makes me happy…
Happy to create beautiful items.
Happy to be part of an amazingly kind community.
Happy to be able to live a creative life.
But most importantly…
Happy to be recording these memories for my family, solely out of love for them and for the moments we share together.
