Darn the snow!

The weather kept me from going to a Stamping Up Party last night. The snow was mesmerizing. I was so looking forward to it. Oh well, I placed my order this morning, tidied my scrap room so I can do some creating. Small consolation though. I so wanted to play last night.

My humble beginnings

I am truly a scrapaholic. After doing my first scrapbook page at a home party over 10 1/2 years ago, I was addicted. My bookshelf is lined with many volumes of our family's story. I have my dream job of working in a local scrapbook store sharing what I love to do to anyone who has the interest. I have access to a gorgeous crop room at work and at home I kicked the kids out of the playroom(they didn't play there anyway) and transformed it into a craft room with my desk in one corner and a communal drafting table on the other side. All of my tools including stamps and inks, papers and supplies are available for all of us to use. My 9 year old daughter is working on her own Disney scrapbook and is wondering what is taking Mommy so long to use it. My 10 year old son has his own distinct non traditional notion of scrapbooking. My husband just admires all of our work.
