My Crafty Resume
A Little Personal Info!

My name is Karan Gerber  and I live just outside Stratford, Ontario. I am a stay-at-home mom to two young men.  Elijah who is 22 and Galen who is 19.

I have been married to a self employed concrete construction guy, named Glenn for 23 years. I manage his business tending to all the administration .  My paper crafting journey started when I went to a home party and became hooked,  that was over 19 years ago.

Objectives: I enjoy being part of a design team, working with others to achieve one goal and that is to make the scrapbook industry strong by sharing my creativity and inspiration with others.  I love to teach workshops sharing my techniques  with like minded people.

 If you have any questions, I encourage  you to contact me if you are looking for someone to come into your store and teach classes.
