Susan R. Opel is an enthusiastic lover of music, fashion, words, travel, red wine, social media, paper crafting, and LIFE.

When Susan turned 39, her life changed significantly. After receiving a BA in English from Concordia University in Ann Arbor, MI, she spent 16.5 years teaching English, art, and religion to students in Illinois, Nevada, and Indiana. But one day she decided that she wasn’t as excited about teaching anymore, and she wanted to expand her world.

In a leap of faith, she took a position at Paper Crafts magazine, quit teaching, and moved across the country to pursue a dream job. For 6 1/2 years she worked as an editor for Paper Crafts, connecting with cool creative people from all over the globe. She forged relationships and friendships with scrapbookers, card makers, and manufacturers and reveled in the creativity that surrounded her.

One day that little magazine shut down for good, but God had a plan. She was blessed with a position as Creative Ambassador for My Favorite Things which enabled her to work from home while caring for her elderly parents.

Now Susan is thrilled to get back to her publishing roots as Editor-in-Chief of Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine!
