Deep Dive into this amazing creator’s life!
Tell us about yourself. What does a day in your life look like?
I work 40 hours a week, 8 to 5, Monday to Friday. I like to garden I like to spend time with my kids. We have a house we just remodeled for my youngest daughter which took us about two and half years. We do have another house that we are about to remodel. Life is always busy for me. I have two dogs at home and my youngest daughter just moved out of the house. She was the last one, so now we are empty nesters. I really do feel it some days.
We love the fact that you and your husband are doing fun videos together. Does he have a Clapper account and are you a Clapper Couple?
He does have a Clapper but he doesn’t post anything. I just kind of share the things that we do. He’s not really into posting but he loves watching the videos and being a part of them. We have been married for 25 years. He makes it so fun for me.
We noticed that you do a lot of home improvements. You even created your own garden. What is that experience like? And what has been your favorite renovation?
It’s a lot, renovating a house. Honestly, I think my favorite one was doing my daughter’s house. She likes more modern stuff, and she always is telling us that we are old. She wanted to have an open kitchen, and some changing color lights in the bathroom, and we did all that for her.. Me and my husband work really work well together. We are always doing new projects together. That house was one of the biggest things we’ve tackled together in 25 years.
You are always such a supportive creator. As someone who is always trying to lift up her community, what would you say is the best way to grow your community?
I think it’s just about being there for people. Before, Clapper, I was a very anxious person. When I found Clapper, it started out just posting little videos to see how it would go and then found people that I actually love and adore. I focused on that. Being there for someone whether it is commenting on their videos or sending some love is probably what helped me grow my community.
What has been your favorite Clapper Events that you’ve participated in?
There have been several events that I’ve loved. Only because it is so recent, I would say the Easter egg hunt. I don’t know if anybody knows this but I was a decoy for that. That was a lot of fun.
We saw that you have the hashtag #TheseDudes in your bio. Is there an inside joke attached to that hashtag? Why did you create it?
To be honest, I am surrounded by these dudes all the time. We have some friend that live close by and sometimes they get together and that has always been my phrase: “These dudes!”. They’re always onto something. So, that’s why; I am always surrounded by them.
What is your favorite feature on the app?
I love the clapbacks. I will do a lot of them all the time. The thing is, I want them to see my response when something is hilarious or surprising. I love the clapbacks.
What advice would you give new users that want to be successful on Clapper?
Support, support, support. I think being such a community-base app, engagement is a big part of it. Just being there for each other its a big part of it. Getting your blue check is not the end of the road, its a chance to connect to more people and help others grow.
