Short bio: Hi AC fans! My name is Jen Chesnick, I go by Chez too - a long time family nickname that I married into and it just kind of took a life of its own. Currently I live in the great state of Maryland with my husband Bill and my daughter Parker. I sell cheese and crackers by day for Mondelez International and by night I craft, scrapbook, obsess over Pinterest & Facebook. Not only am I a social media addict I watch almost all reality TV, it’s quite ridiculous. Remember The Real World? That’s where it ALL started. When I am not cooped up in the house I like to travel, and don’t be shocked, but I love to camp. As long as I have wi-fi and a power strip all is well in the world.
How did you get started scrapbooking? I started scrapbooking in 2006 after seeing one of my Mothers scrapbooks. I've always been a pretty crafty gal. Some of my favorite childhood memories are of making crafts in Girl Scouts and patching together random fabric pieces making clothes. Paper crafting has turned into a full on obsession.
What is your favorite American Crafts product? Patterned paper! I love that there are always lots of papers to chose from and the B sides are always just as good as the front.
