i met nina before the scrapfest through parenting monthly where she is the headwriter. we started out as acquaintances over the parenting forum and slowly, i found out she is into scrapbooking also and so after few chitchats, we finally met at the scrapfest for the first time. i find her warm and friendly and an open person too. she is not the kind where you have to pretend to be someone else to be able to impress her. with nina, you can be yourself.
