My name is Shawn Hillenbrand. I live in Indiana with my hubby and 2 kiddos. I have always been artistic in one way or another. My grandmother made her living as an artist, and she worked with me from a very young age to enhance my gifts. I’ve always managed to find one creative outlet or another, which have included painting, cake decorating and now paper crafting.
My children inspire me the most. I almost always start with a photo when making a page and most photos are of my kids. From a crafty perspective, I absolutely love watching YouTube videos. I love watching new and different crafters to see what they create. I especially love watching anyone who is able to embrace being different, and who aren’t concerned with making their projects look like everyone elses.
Shawn has been on The Crafty Maven Getaway design team since May 2017.
