Hello! I’m Manda, known in digi-world as mandak and I am the digital designer behind Nibbles Skribbles! I am mommy to 3 amazing little boys, married to an incredible man and loving life!
I design digital scrapbooking kits, templates and commercial use products – it’s a hobby turned career and I love every minute of it! I love coffee, chocolate, owls and all things purple! Pour me a glass of white wine and we’ll be best friends!
In 2005, I had my first son, I paper-scrapped and created wonderful, but huge and expensive, albums for him. I spent a lot of time on the computer playing with pictures, choosing the one to print and typing up journaling (because, I hate my handwriting). In 2007 I received my first copy of Photoshop Elements (version 4) and with it came a trial for a Digital Scrapbooking site and some products. I was hooked. I started scrapping and joined a few Creative Teams. It didn’t take me long to start learning the basics of designing. I started designing templates and slowly moved into kits. By mid-2008 I was selling my products and my career as a digital designer began! I have grown and changed my style – but one thing remains the same – my hobby is my job and I LOVE every minute of it!
I get asked a lot about my business name – back in my college days, I adopted the nickname Nibbles – I used it for my email, various usernames etc. I always liked it. When I started designing, I went with it – adding the Skribbles part (the change of the standard “c” to “k” to reflect my married last name). And there you have it, Nibbles Skribbles!
I have 3 amazing sons – Adam, Alex and Lucas. They are the stars of most pages I scrap and definitely the stars of my life!
