Interview with Tim Ellenbecker
What inspires you?
My goal is to enable people to personalize items to enhance their beauty and add personal significance. To that end, I enjoy playing with new materials and trying out alternative techniques to see what kind of effect can be achieved. Recently I was allowed to use a new software program that will replace a photograph with text, so that is what I currently am having fun experimenting with.
How did you get your start in the business?
I have over 10 years of laser experience and I have a very artistic family. When I decided to start my own business, it seemed natural to blend the two. Now with my laser engraver I have the opportunity to transform memories and create beautiful keepsakes for wonderful people and I couldn’t be happier.
What is the most unique wedding you have been a part of?
One of my college friends is a Muslim and a few years ago he married a lovely Jewish girl. Coming from a Catholic background myself, I was intrigued with the way the two of them blended different ceremonies and family customs into their wedding. The experience was delightful and educational … and a whole lot of fun.
What’s your favorite vacation spot?
When we went to Portland, Oregon there was one attraction in particular that has stuck with me, the Japanese Gardens. Reportedly these are the best gardens outside of Japan, and they are truly beautiful. There were at least five distinct zones that each had their own unique look and feel. If you like tranquil surroundings and have even a passing interest in Japanese culture, I highly recommend it.
If you could visit any place in the world where would that be and why?
I think it would be fun to go to New Zealand and tour all the beautiful locations where the Lord of the Rings was filmed.
What is your motto or favorite quote to live by?
I like to say “Happy wife, happy life.” I am not sure where I first heard it, but when I bring it up I get such a wide range of reactions that it makes for fun conversation.
Are you involved with Charity work? Tell us about it.
I have been a volunteer Cub Scout leader for many years now. At one point I was mentoring over 50 boys, giving them opportunities to explore nature and learn new skills. Often I found that the parents were learning as much as the boys, though sometimes the lessons were different. I had one high spirited young lad that showed a significant amount of interest in geology during a cave tour; his parents and I decided to encourage this and quickly it became the boy’s best subject and a grounding point for improving his grades overall. Geology never did replace his first love (skateboarding), but then again it didn’t really need to. In addition to scouting, I am an active supporter of the American Diabetes Association. One of my little sisters was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in her early teens and our entire family has rallied around her.
