Pinky's Scrapbooking Resume

Hello, I am Cristal Hobbs otherwise known as Pinky in the scrap world.

I am an avid scrapbooker/crafter, I teach scrapbooking and crafting in a classroom setting and online. I have experience teaching up to 250 in a classroom setting and have a relaxed, comfortable style. You can find many of my creations in magazine, catalogs and manufacturers galleries.
I am looking for new and productive opportunities including travel/teaching, DT Coordination, Social Media Coordinations.

I have been scrapping a little over 4 years now and my style is definitely clean, trendy, and/or shabby chic with an edge. I also work very well with vintage style.
I pay close attention to the small details.
I love working with acrylic, wood, fabric and any other
medium I can get my hands one.
I have a unique and very creative sense of style.
As you can see by my work I am very versatile. I can work with anything from acrylic, white space, grungy, paint, to the most flowery chic product. I love trying it all!
I stay current with techniques and products while coming up with MY OWN new and creative ideas.
I have made several tutorials and they are a great connection to other crafters, as well as my honest and heartfelt pages.
My strongest attribute is my marketing skills for any craft company and myself.
My blog has over 2000 followers, I have from 4000 to 10000 hits a day. I have 3000+ Facebook "friends" which tie into my social media.

I coordinate all Clear Scraps Social Media and have brought them from 50 followers to almost 4000.
Crafters come to my blog for many reasons which include new ideas and designs, giveaways, fresh happy approach to life, inspiration, and also my personal farm life which includes 10 chickens. I try to keep it fun and fresh every day.
I meticulously blog on an almost daily basis, generally only missing 1 to 2 days a month.
I think you will enjoy my work and I am always on time, most times I am done early.
My ideas are not only creative but always original as well.
Thank you for your time and considering me, you won't regret it!
