Kathy Biondi
I have been married to my lovely husband of 10 years and we have 2 fur babies, both Princess's of course. I am privileged to be the Manager of the Winnipeg location of The Scrapbook Cottage for the whole 5 years(!!!) we have been open.
I have been scrapbooking for over 15 years now  I love to try new things and believe in living and crafting outside the lines I routinely have published works on display at

The Scrapbook Cottage and many unfinished and in progress projects in my crafting studio. I love teaching and watching as people become more comfortable pushing their boundaries and learning to be creative in a new way. When I do have spare time, I enjoy gardening, sewing, being with my family and reading.
