LDBP:: Mad Genius Designs

Who:: Jewel @ Mad Genius Designs

Business Established:: January 2009 after scrapbooking for 11 years.
What they do:: Jewel Goodwin is a digital scrapbooking designer, designing under the name Mad Genius Designs.
How she finds balance:: This is a struggle, as I am sure any mom knows. I try my best to meet the family’s needs first, and the business second, but it's not always possible when I have deadlines. Having a supportive husband and extended family helps a lot. I also find I am up late working long after the kids are in bed, since I can't get much done while they are up.
Her best advice:: If there is any way to get the kids involved, go for it. My boys love to draw doodles for me (even if I don't use them they love to contribute that way). They also love to see what I am working on. I am always photographing bizarre things for textures and other design work, and my kids love to help me find things when we are out on family trips. They know what I do, and they are proud of it. My son recently asked if I was photographing the ground for scrapbooking, and when I nodded he smiled and said. 'That's my mom!’
What they are giving away:: Back To School digital scrapbooking bundle, including a kit, pre-designed brag book pages, and a gift certificate to the store!
Play and win:: Name one Mad Genius kit you love and why.

I love the Mommy's Moment Mini Kit because it has great colours - love the brown with blue. I have a lot of mommy scrapping to do.
