Peg Rounds lives in East Moline, Illinois with her husband and best friend, Kevin and their son Josh and 2 dogs. She was an elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom, and later a home school mom. Over the years, she designed cakes on the side and went to school to become a certified chocolatier. She always has loved to craft since she was young and it was something that she wanted to be doing, but set it aside due to her busy life. After 15 years of doing cakes she decided it was time to stop and focus more on her family. She began doing layouts, then cards and it went from there. Before she knew it, next to spending time with her family, she spent every free moment creating something and blogging about it. One thing led to another and here she is today! Check out Peg's blog, Peg's Crafting Corner to see what else she has been up to!

Q: I can’t get my tape runner to add any tape. Is there something wrong with it?
A: If it’s a new runner and you know it’s not empty, first check that you are holding it correctly so the end that has the tape is down on the paper. It’s easy to grab them and have them upside down. Next, check to make sure there is tape on that area of the roller. Sometimes used tape runners will have an open spot where there is no tape.
