Jill Sprott’s photo may not exactly scream “local girl,” don’t let the blond hair and blue eyes fool you. She was born and raised on Oahu, Hawai’i, where she still lives with her husband, daughter, and three fur-children.
By day, Jill is an English teacher; a profession that is like scrapbooking, a colorful, creative, and rewarding endeavor. When the weekend rolls around, her focus shifts from students’ papers to patterned paper. Jill has been scrapbooking for over a decade now, and show no signs of falling out of love with it.
When trying to explain why she scrapbooks, she always quotes Robert Frost, who claimed that poetry is “a way of remembering what it would impoverish us to forget.” That defines scrapbooking for Jill. For her, being able to share her passion for this incredible hobby with others is a true honor.
