Hello All! I can't believe that I have entered into the world of blogging. I actually just discovered blogs about six months ago. Once I figured out how to subscribe to my favorites, I was hooked! I admit that most of...okay, *all*...of the blogs that I follow deal with crafting or scrapbooking in one way or another. I just love the chance to see other peoples creations and get some inspiration for my own.
Someone asked the question recently, "Besides preserving photos and memories, what is your favorite thing about scrapbooking"? It didn't take long for me to reply with an answer because it truly brings me so much happiness! I said that I simply love the craftiness of it. It brings me back to my days of coloring, cutting, gluing and such. I have always loved to create, the fact that it is an acceptable way for me to play is just a bonus : ) I created this blog to have a spot to keep my own creations in one place and, if I am lucky, maybe inspire another person or two!
A little about me...
I have had scrapbook supplies in my household for nine years but really jumped into the craft with both feet about three years ago. My favorite subjects are my family members but I also like to scrap about other things that are dear to me. I am married to a wonderful man who supports my hobby 100%. I also have three pretty incredible kids that are patient with the camera being around all the time.
For the most part, I make scrapbook pages but have tried a few cards here and there as well as other crafty things like baby gifts and party supplies. I have a few favorite things in regard to scrapbooking...
1) Scrapbooksteals.com- Hands down, my favorite place to purchase scrapbook supplies. Also, the ladies on their Facebook page keep my creativity flowing and keep me laughing!
2) My Mind's Eye, Imaginisce and Echo Park are probably my three favorite scrapbook companies right now but that changes all the time when I see something I love from another company!
3) I just bought my very first Silhouette Personal Die Cutting System and I can't wait to use it! (Thanks to scrapbooksteals.com)!
Some of my upcoming projects include:
A December Daily Album: A great idea that I found to remember the fun we had preparing for the upcoming holiday! Basically it is an album full of empty pages before December and then you finish a page every day when the month arrives. This allows you to scrap memories as they happen without becoming overwhelmed. I got the idea from my awesome Scrapbooks Etc. magazine. Here is the website: http://www.scrapbooksetc.com/theme/holidays/christmas/easy-december-daily-album/
Christmas Banner: I got a great little mini album that I am planning on taking apart and assembling into a banner for my fireplace mantle.
Thanks for taking a look at my brand-new blog! Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what kind of things you would like to see! Below, I have posted a few of my more recent layouts and creations. Let me know if you have any questions! Have a fabulous day!
