This month, we are discovering a "new" member who has been with us for over 6 years! Interestingly, she does more than just scrapbooking as she uses Paintshop Pro for other graphics projects too.
Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
My name is Peggy Dorgan but most folks around the internet know me as MamaWolf. Wolf was my maiden name so MamaWolf sort of came naturally to me, being the oldest of eleven. I am a 'feisty' 72-year-old Pensylvania Dutch lady. I love Country & 50s Rock & Roll but I also listen to Big Band, Western Swing, Bluegrass & Native American Flute. I've had a major hearing loss for 50+ years & I love feeling the beat of the music. Besides that, I am an avid reader & being a Grandma is my greatest accomplishment in life.
How did you get to work with PSP?
In 2000, after a lengthy battle, I had to make the decision to take my husband off life support. I lost a part of myself that day. That is when I found computers & PaintShop Pro. I started out in Yahoo Groups making signature tags & letters for Outlook Express. As I learned PSP through tutorials, I became addicted. I tried Photoshop but it was way too expensive for me & I have found that I can do anything in PSP that PS can do. When I moved on to digital scrapbooking, there was no looking back. I was searching for a tutorial to make a frayed edge when I came across the Scrapbook Campus. I have been a registered member ever since.
How did you get to join the Campus?
I started taking Carol's classes & attending some of her Webinars & I liked the way she teaches. I have come to look to her whenever I need help with PSP. To me, she is my ultimate resource. I put off becoming a Diamond Member for a long time because of the cost. Being tight-fisted is a good old Pennsylvania Dutch habit. I should have done it long ago. It's the best money I've ever spent.
What kinds of projects do you make?
I concentrate my efforts on doing printables like cards & calendars as well as wall hangings, desktop signs & photo mats. I am currently working on a shop at Etsy & have two products listed so far---wow, I am off to a good start. I am finding that I love designing & hate marketing but I refuse to quit. My motto for living my life is "Learn something new each day" and don't ever say "You can't teach an old dog new tricks". It ain't so, Folks!
