Yes...Sparkle is my real name. I'm half Hmong and half Chinese. My ethnic names translate to shiny light, hence why my American name is Sparkle.  I was born and raised in the Portland area and graduated from Oregon State University.  After living in Denver and Seattle, in 2014, I moved back home. I am now happily living in Portland, Oregon with my wonderful and supportive husband, Brent, and our precious son, Boston.

I have been crafting since I was a child, but seriously crafting since I was 16.  I took a 4 year break while I was away at college, but started right back up again after graduation.  I started as a scrapbooker, though over the years I turned into a cardmaker and now I've evolved into a planner girl! 

I also work full time at Moneytree as an Instructional Design Lead and work from home.  Our corporate office is located in the Seattle area and I travel up there about once a month. I've been with Moneytree for over 10 years now and truly enjoy my career.
