About OCM

Welcome! I’m Noreen Smith and I’m the “mom” behind Organized and Creative Mom. I’m so glad you’re here! I’m looking forward to getting to know you a bit better in the future through our online community and social media, but in the meantime,  let me tell you a bit about myself.

I live in beautiful Calgary, Alberta, Canada with my husband Shane and my two sons – Grayson and Sam. I’m also a Scrapbooker, Blogger, Author, YouTuber and Creator of the 1-2-3 Scrapbook Method. By education and profession I’m a teacher: I hold Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Education Degrees, as well as a Masters of Education Degree and I taught Visual Arts and Humanities for 28 years in a large school board here in Calgary. I resigned from teaching on January 1 2020 and now I’m so happy to devote all my time to teaching modern memory-keepers to learn how to document and preserve their memories and stories in a fast, easy and fun way.

Over the years I’ve taught 100’s of ladies (and a few gentlemen!) in person, and I’ve been able to teach 1000’s more through the magic of technology – this website, my Facebook PageInstagram FeedPinterest BoardsYouTube ChannelOnline Classes and Digital Products.

I am proud to be a Creative Memories Advisor and to provide ideas to my customers and to other advisors for using the fantastic CM products in their memory-keeping. I also support my team of personally sponsored CM Advisors that live and work all across Canada, and am honored to have been asked to provide training at National and International Creative Memories events.

I’m so glad that YOU are here, and I hope I can help you too! Feel free to read through any blog posts that interest you, join me on my Social Media channels, purchase (and use!) Creative Memories and/or my own Digital Products, take my Online Courses or join me at in-person events in the Calgary area. Above all, please feel free to reach out to me via organizedandcreativemom@gmail.com with your questions or comments!

Happy Scrapping!
