Scrapbook Update is pleased to announce that May Flaum is joining the site as a Contributing Writer effective immediately.
May’s work is familiar to many in the scrapbook industry. She has been published in numerous magazines and is the co-author for Memory Makers of the book Paper + Pixels: Scrapbook Layouts. She is a Big Picture Scrapbooking instructor, design team member for Scarlet Lime kits, and a freelance writer & designer. Until recently, she was also the education coordinator for the Fiskars Crafts website. Over the course of her career she has taught classes around the United States as well as managed a scrapbook store and worked with numerous scrapbook companies. You can read more about her and her crafting adventures at her blog, Confessions of a Chocoholic.
As the Editor of Scrapbook Update, I am pleased both personally and professionally to welcome May to the site. For five years, Scrapbook Update has been a single-author website (outside of the occasional guest piece). However, due to changes in the industry and the needs of our readership, I believe the time has come to expand the content and perspective on the site to beyond that possible from a single writer. May will bring to Scrapbook Update both the incredible creative perspective of an industry-leading designer, and a wider perspective on trends and issues in the industry. Scrapbook Update will of course continue to deliver industry business news as it always has, but our ability to deliver information on trends and the creative side of the industry will be greatly enhanced by May’s addition to the site’s staff.
May will be attending CHA as a representative of Scrapbook Update, so keep an eye out for her (and your trusty Scrapbook Update Editor) on the show floor in Anaheim. If you’d like to contact May, she can be contacted via Scrapbook Update’s contact page which will be updated shortly to reflect her addition to the site.
