and her little girl, Gracie
That said, Lindy definitely has an awareness of possessing a certain style, because she sent me the LO below, saying that she likes it because of the white space and simplicity of it, adding that "I normally don't do so LITTLE!"

[Lindy's notes about this camping trip: "It was HORRIBLE rain. We make all of our camping reservations at the beginning of the year. It just so happened when this was scheduled in September 2008... it was when Hurricane Hanna hit and came all the way up the coast... it rained the ENTIRE weekend; but we didn't care, we still had fun."]
New to blogging, Lindy has made it a routine to post links to some really wonderful challenges on her Blog, "Veni Vidi Scrappy"- for example, the Cool Colour challenge you can find right HERE.
One can see from her Blog that Lindy seems to have a knack for making cards, as evidenced by THIS sweet piece of card-making creativity featuring Echo Park patterned papers!! And... how can we forget the card below card, created with Ann's recent card Sketch #3? I love it!

Lindy's fave products include those created by Sassafras; SEI and Bo Bunny.
She is a crackerjack at being organized: her LOs are always sent in on time, and she is well ahead of deadlines with every one, whether card or LO. She told me that one of her organizational secrets is using "a binder that has tabs that I have organized by SOS, S:CY, Project 12, other misc challenges - things like that."
In terms of storage of her scrappy LOs, Lindy made me grin outright because I can SO relate to her every word on this issue! She says that she doesn't scrap chronologically, and like "Yours Truly," she prefers "the D Ring Binders by WRMK." She also reports that like many scrappers, she didn't come across these binders "until I had like four 12x12 boxes STUFFED with completed layouts... needless to say I now have 2 of those WRMK binders and 6 overstuffed boxes full of layouts!!"
Lindy's pastimes aside from scrappin’ include camping, reading, and going hiking or biking. Lindy says "mostly we camp locally in York/Lancaster County in PA. Most campgrounds we go to have hiking trails. Last summer we went to Blue Rock Campground and hiked Hawk Mountain and we had a BLAST. My daughter, who was 4 at the time so enjoyed it and wants to go back."
Lindy is also a proud sister to a US soldier, and her application LO for the DT here at S:CY was a LO that featured her soldier-brother, Chad.
Lindy doesn't like to "cook" per se-- but she loves to bake. When I asked her about this, she said "I make a mean Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Icing all from scratch. It is always a HUGE request at family gatherings and my nephews, Dad, DH and DB's fight over it. LOL" She also told me about her fave food... "I LOVE seafood....and my DH makes me a FANTASTIC shrimp, crab and scallop pasta dish. Not sure how he does it and his sauce is always from scratch!"

When I asked her how she felt about the concept of 'being caught up" with her scrappin', Lindy replied: "I will never be caught up; is anyone ever caught up?!"
And to this, I am sure MANY of us are mentally replying...."True Lindy! Too True!" LOL!
Thanks for allowing us to spotlight you this week, it's been a pleasure to get to know you a wee bit better and to be able to hear the happy "voice" you bring to S:CY through your creations, Lindy!
