About Sabrina Alery

Hello! I am so delighted to be working with Clearsnap for another term! My family and I live in rural Madison County, Iowa in an old farm house. We have 4 kids under age 7, 3 roosters roaming in the yard and a black cat too. Playing with ink, color and stamping has become a great passion over the last several years. Sneaking in a couple hours of inky time each day during nap time helps keep me sane! I love finding new ways to use products and sharing them with you here on the Clearsnap blog and on my personal blog space. You can also find my work in the pages of several craft and card making magazines. In additional to paper crafting, I love to cook, sew, garden and spend time outdoors unplugged.
