Thanks for stopping by as I kick off my brand new personal blog. I still maintain a blog over at the Memory Makers Magazine site but this one will allow me to share alot more than my love of scrapbooking. I’m a true crafter at heart and my interest in various arts and crafts only seems to grow with increased exposure to any new craft. I love just about everything including card making, quilting, rubber stamping, stenciling and even dollmaking… and the list goes on and on much to the chagrin of my husband Boris.
I’d like to share my various projects via this blog and hopefully at the same time provide you with a little inspiration to try some new hobbies you may not have considered before.
On a scrapbooking note, I went to a crop over the weekend. Now I usually don’t go to crops because I can never decide what to pack. You know how that can be. I did manage to get everything packed in one large cropper hopper, a shoulder bag and a tool tote. Anyway, it was a total blast, and organized by Tiare Smith who owns Classy Coordinates Scrapbook Club and Scraps of Color. She was visiting Chicago from Atlanta and put everything together at Windy City Scrapbooking. If you are ever in Chicago the Windy City is a must stop shoppe, because it’s always filled with the latest and greatest product. You gotta pace yourself though, or you could do some serious damage.
Some of the other scrappers at the crop included Danielle Nix who was working on a special project-good luck with that girl! And Alraynita Coleman who also works at Windy City and knows every product like the back of her hand. We had loads of great talk (about scrapping and other stuff), too much really yummy food (I’ll pay for that later), great music (who knew Alan Thicke’s son had that voice) and lots of shopping for scrap supplies (as if we actually need more stash-but hey that’s part of the fun)… and oh, yeah we did get a little bit of scrapbooking accomplished in between it all.
