Tell us about yourself. My name is Angie Iacobazzi. My design name is Down This Road Designs. I usually go by Down This Road in forums, or Angie I or aiacob (first initial and first 5 of last name).
I am 39, married to my husband for 15 years and we live in Sandy with our 2 kids. I work part time at our neighborhood elementary school as an aide doing all kinds of things from making copies to reading one on one with kids. I love it!!
I love all things crafty and wish there were more hours in the day to spend being creative!!! I like to read and at the moment working out (that is not always the case).
How did you get started? I started digital scrapbooking in 2005 when I stumbled upon it while looking for clipart online for my paper scrapping. I soon found out my neighbor owned an online digital scrapbook site and I took the plunge and have loved it ever since.
I started designing in March 2009 after entering a design contest. I did not make it past the first week in that contest, but I was hooked and I decided to learn more and improve my skills. I started selling my designs at my first online shop in June of 2009 and now here I am.
What programs do you use? I use Photoshop CS6 and Illustrator 6.
