Meet Ory Thompson

Hey!  I am Ory Thompson.  I have been married to my wonderful husband, Chris, for 18 years. We live in Fair Grove, Missouri, and together have 3 beautiful daughters.  I do work full-time and have a flea market booth, but find time for what I love, too, my family, the KC Chiefs, scrapbooking and all things crafty!   

I have carried a camera around since grade school and have been scrapbooking since high school. I was introduced to a scrapbooking company in 1998, just before my first daughter was born. I was so excited that I became a consultant and bought the big $1,000 kit... but never sold a thing!  

I love using my Cricut to design and create titles, page kits, and borders.  I own Ory's Originals, which is where you can find my latest creations. 

One thing you may be wondering, 'Where did the name Ory come from?'   Nope, that is not my legal name!  My given name is Lawretta.  When I was little my grandma called me Lori, short for Lawretta.  But, I couldn't say my L's.  I'm told that when my pediatrician asked what my name was, I said, "I Ory" and she wrote down ORY.  I've been that ever since!  

I am very excited to share my love of scrapbooking by creating fun, relaxing and memorable weekends.  Can't wait to meet you and look forward to cropping with you soon!
