It’s always so amazing to see the work of women who put their heart and soul into their businesses, hobbies, and creative endeavors. The things that catch my eye when looking for my ambassadors – women who work hard, are willing to put themselves out there for what they love and believe in, support other women, and are just, well, all around amazing! Every one of the women on the team are all of these and more, and I’m excited to share a bit about brand ambassador Tricia Romo with you today!
Tricia Romo is a Navy wife and mom of 3. Documenting life is incredibly important to her. She has been scrapbooking for years and more recently started using a traveler’s notebook to journal and scrapbook in. She is on the planner design team at Cocoa Daisy and is a teacher at Big Picture Classes. Photography has become more than a passion to her, it has become the extension of her memories that her family will cherish for years.
How long have you been a crafter?
I’ve been crafting ever since I can remember. I’ve always loved using planners, journals, and scrapbooks. I remember having a Lisa Frank planner in grade school, it never left my side! After that I always had some form of planner or journal with me.
What made you decide to pursue crafting?
I think my love for it really blossomed once I had children. The thought of having someone see all my memories after I’m gone made it even more important to document every day life. In the beginning it was a creative outlet and it still is, but it has taken on a new meaning. I love to sit and look back on old scrapbooks or journals and see how life has changed.
How has your crafting business evolved over the years?
Before the era of social media I mainly crafted for myself and my loved ones. While I still do that now, social media has made it more of a community for me. I’ve met so many amazing people through this online community and found a new passion; teaching! I love to share the things I’ve learned over the years. I was so grateful to all the people who taught me when I was starting out. When I was approached by Big Picture Classes last summer I knew it was a perfect fit for me. It’s opened up a new side of myself I didn’t realize was there! This hobby has helped me grow as a person and I wasn’t expecting that. You can check out Tricia’s class here.
What kind of camera(s) do you own and what role do they play in your life?
My two main cameras are the Canon 6D and the Canon G1X. The 6D is my main camera for every day photography and taking pictures for the various classes I teach and blog posts I do. The G1X is my travel camera, I usually only use it for trips. I love how compact it is!
What’s your favorite thing about your bluebird chic strap?
I honestly love all the different fabrics offered by Bluebird Chic. If I had to choose one style it would be anything floral. I love that my strap looks like a beautiful scarf when I’m wearing it. I’ve tried so many different straps over the years and none of them were ever as comfortable as my Bluebird Chic strap. It never cuts into my neck and feels so soft when I’m wearing it for extended periods of time.
