Back In The Day
Hi there this is Caroline Lau – one of the partners at Maya Road. When Lisa asked me to post here on her blog I was first at a loss at what I would post. So I decided that I would talk about how Lisa made it onto the Maya Road team way back in 2006 during our very first (and only so far) Design Team call.
I honestly had never heard of Lisa or seen her work before. Lisa was new to the world of scrapbooking back then. The first time I noticed her work was when I saw this project on Two Peas In A Bucket:
Lisa had done some amazing things with our bottlecaps that I had never seen before. I was floored at the execution and details of her work.
I was hoping that she would try out for our team.
Lisa did – she created this great project here using some of our first coasters and chipboard:
Anyhow, I remember calling Lisa for the interview and telling her I was so sorry I was so hoarse (I had a bad cold) and I heard her talk like this “oh.my.gosh.are.you.really.calling. me? eeekkkk” with words strung together at 100 mph. After I calmed her down, I told her she made it to the next round. And as they say the rest is history.
Take a look at Lisa’s style now versus back then, you will see that in the last 6 years, Lisa has taken the creative journey to the place she is at. Lisa has always stayed true to her style even in these early projects with consistent use of glitter, journaling strips, crackle paint and more. Even as her projects have evolved to reflect her creative process, she still stays true to herself and that is why Lisa’s work has such a distinct look.
Thanks for joining me on this trip down memory lane!
