Meet Kristin Erdman!

We thought it would be fun for you to learn more about Club Scrap Staffer, Kristin Erdman. She works really hard, but it's mostly "behind the scenes" as one of Club Scrap's Website Developers. We thought it was about time for you to get to know her better, so we'll continue the "12 Favorites" tradition with Kristin's list!

My 12 Favorite Things

No matter what happens in my life, I stay grounded on the Bible and faith in Jesus Christ as my Savior. I’ve always been active in my church and couldn’t imagine life without it.

I get along great with my family. They are supportive when I need them and always fun to hang out with! I get together very frequently with my parents, three brothers, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. I also have two adorable nephews that I get to babysit every Friday.

Healthy Eating
I like gardening, cooking, and trying new, healthy recipes. If it’s a fresh fruit or vegetable, I’ll eat it!

Active Living
I also like to stay active, taking my energetic Beagle, Driver, on at least two 2 mile walks a day. I also enjoy biking, hiking, tennis, yard games, snow shoeing, and the Wii. Yes, you can definitely get a workout from a video game!

Local Establishments
Farmers markets, wineries, breweries, restaurants, goofy road side attractions, historical landmarks…and so on. You can bet that if I travel somewhere, I won’t be eating at McDonald’s. I’m going to whatever cute little local place looks good.

Mainly Packers football, Brewers baseball and Timber Rattlers baseball (class A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers). I try to catch as many games as I can! There’s nothing like dressing in some crazy sports gear, going tailgating and experiencing a live sporting event.

Although I don’t get out of town as much as I’d like… I really enjoy exploring new places. Whether it be an hour away or halfway across the world, say the word and I’ll tag along with who ever is up for an adventure. And the itinerary will be packed. I’m definitely not content to lie on the beach. I want to do everything.

Definitely my favorite snack, I make it at home in my Whirley-Pop with coconut oil and whatever spices I’m in the mood for. It’s delicious anytime of the day. And goes especially well with movies… which happens to be my next favorite thing!

Aside from sporting events, I hardly ever watch live television, but I do enjoy movies. Anything from documentaries to action or a good comedy… pretty much anything that’s not too gory or scary. Netflix = awesome.

Cribbage is probably my favorite card game, and one frequently played with my family. I also enjoy Scrabble, Monopoly, Apples to Apples, and Wits 'n Wagers, just to name a few.

I am always reading something. I mostly enjoy non-fiction (if I’m going to invest time reading, I want to learn something!) No e-reader for me either, I like the kind of book that smells like a library

...and I’m not just saying that because I work at Club Scrap… I really do love creating albums, cards and gifts both to keep and give away. With the talented people I work with, and wide variety of unique products I see everyday, it’s hard not to want to go home and create something fun every night!


  1. Great getting to know you a little better Kristin! Love the photo of you on the zip line!


  2. oh boy, another popcorn lover! Thanks for sharing a bit of yourself with us!

  3. Yep, and Kristin is the one who says that sleeping is a waste of time. Now I know why! She's got so many things she loves to do!

  4. Awesome post Kristin, my desk is right near yours at CS Headquarters, however you are usually working too diligently to chat about this stuff like this, so, glad to know you better now!

  5. You sound a lot like myself, only younger. Makes me wish I would have found the hobby of scrapping when I was a young mom or even single adult. It's a wonderful pastime at any age. Enjoyed reading your blog. You are truly blessed.
