Hello there friends, my name is Claudia White and it is my turn to introduce myself here as a member of the creative team for The Reset Girl.
I live in Southern California, but was born in El Salvador, the smallest country in Central America. I came here with my sister back in 1985, I was 14 years old and did not speak a word of English. If you ask my children they will probably say I still don’t.
As a family we love to go hiking, watch movies and we are complete comic book, super hero nerds. My husband and I are hoping to finally be able to hike part of the PCT-Pacific Crest Trail- this year. Remember the movie “Wild” with Reese Witherspoon? that trail. Not the whole thing, just about 30 miles of it. His will be our third year trying. God had other plans for us the past two years and were not able to do it. Third times is the charm, right?? If we do it this year, you will see me posting all about it sometime in August.
I started crafting/memory keeping in 1999, when my sister gave me my first Creative Memory album as a wedding gift. It was history after that. I haven’t stopped, only changed wit the times. I now have several other hobbies under my belt. I have taught classes at the Elementary school where my children went, at my home, at Hobby Lobby and several scrapbooking stores. I love all types of crafts, from basic sewing, crochet, knitting, mixed media, collaging, art journaling and of course I am a planner girl.
One of the best crafting tips I ever received, ok two of the best tips I ever received are; let go of chronological memory keeping. Boy was that liberating. Once accepted that I didn’t have to go back in time to document past events. I starting documenting only what brought me joy. I wasn’t worried about it, not matter how behind I was. The second best advice I got was, to stop hoarding my supplies. That super special layout or event I was waiting for, worth using my best washi tape, and best florals? that project was the one I was currently working on. I was amazing!!! no more hoarding, yay!!!
My most favorite tool? That’s a tough one, but if I must pick, it would have to be the Hole Reinforcer Punch by We R Memory Keepers. If you know me, you know that I love tags and that little punch lets me customize and beautiful decorate all the tags I want. Love it!!
I first discovered Cori as The Reset Girl early 2017, I started watching her traveler notebook videos on her Youtube channel. I learned from her how to add extra inserts in my TN, using elastic bands. Of course I started following her on Instagram and she announced the very fist Camp Reset I joined the Facebook group. Just after Camp Reset 2017, I joined her creative team. So blessed to still be here with them.
