Fabre S, Holliston MA

About Fabre:
I’m married and live in Holliston, Massachusetts (suburb of Boston). I live with my husband, Larry, and our 2 kids - Victoria (14) and Zachary (11). My husband and I own a personal chef business, as well as an online bookselling business. In my spare time that I’m not cardmaking or scrapbooking I enjoy travel, movies, dining out, reading, and getting together with friends.


How long have you been making cards?
I’ve been scrapbooking for about 5 years now, and started making cards shortly thereafter.


How long making them for our heroes?
I have been making cards for our heroes for over 2 years now. My daughter Victoria started making cards for the heroes as a bat mitzvah project, and I quickly joined in with her. Our first attempt we sent over 800 cards. I then found Cards for Heroes online and am excited to be part of this wonderful group.


How did you hear about CFH?
I first heard about CFH on 2 Peas in a Bucket.


What’s your favorite kind of card to make?
I really enjoy making general/blank cards. I think it allows for flexibility when using the cards - it’s all about efficiency! LOL!


Do you have a special technique you love to use?
I just got a cuttlebug, and I have really been enjoying it! I tend to have a very “simple” style, and try not to over embellish. I do enjoy coloring my images, and finding just that right piece of patterned paper to use!


Are there colors, style, or product that draw you?
I really love Memory Box penguins - they are so cute and I am trying to gather the whole collection! LOL! I also LOVE Basic Grey paper, Prima flowers, and American Crafts ribbon. I also find myself drawn to purchasing bird images, but don’t use them often (except for the penguins!!!)


What motivates you to make cards for heroes?
I know how much it means to me to receive a special card in the mail from a friend or family member, so I can only imagine how great it must feel for our heroes families to receive a card from them! I love the art of letter writing, even though I don’t do it enough myself. I am also thrilled to have come on board as the newest CFH shipper! It is a project that my whole family is involved in and we just love it. We are always looking for things to do OTHER than watch TV, and this project allows us to have a lot of family time together while working for a great cause!
