Getting to Know our Designers: Lanette, Jessica, Claude, Jennifer, and Kelly Jean

Lanette Erickson
Hello, My name is Lanette Erickson and I live in the mitten state (that's Michigan) with my husband and two amazing daughters. We share our home with my husbands two cats that are kind enough to me I guess... I really want a dog!
I've been a crafty person all my life, I think I started scrapbooking 10 years ago (probably longer). I have been told my style is Romantic and Clean & Simple, but I try not to be boxed in by my style. I love to try new products & techniques, really I just love to get messy! I love so many manufactures I really can't just pick a few, because for me it really depends on my mood when I am scrap. 
I've been on the team for just over 2 years and I love it here! The ladies are amazing and the projects keep trying new things. You can always see what I'm up to here are my links, please feel free to stop by and visit me anytime @:
