I have been crafting my whole life, I started scrapbooking when I was in High School. Although it was nothing like scrapbooking is today. I had those magnetic albums, you know the ones that damage your photos if you keep them in there for any length of time they turn a orange-red type color. I really got into scrapbooking the right way about 18 years ago. I fell in love with anything that had to do with it. I would scrap during the day while the kids were sleeping, and when they went to bed for the night I would get right back to it. I got into Creative Memories, and had crops in my home every friday night. I soon took over Dining Room with scrapbooks, die cuts, glue sticks, tape runners, and of course PAPER!! I would never have believed that a human being could become so emotionally attached to paper, I loved to buy it, use it, alter it, ect. I then decided that I would take over another room in the house that I thought I would set it up, and it would be wonderful, except for the fact that I am the messiest crafter in the free world. I can't seem to take something out, and when I am done just put it away. It seems like an easy concept, but i just can't seem to grasp it!! I had to stop my friday night crops because I was diagnose with Lupus. For those of you who do not know what that is, I didn't either when the doctor told me that I had it. What it is basically, is an auto-immune disorder, and it causes joint pain, a rash on and off on my face, and a few other annoying symtoms. Anyway, I was in and out of the hospital because of another annoying disease called Colitis. I had trouble committing to every friday night crop cause I never knew how I was going to feel. I also have been decorating cakes on and off, since I was in high school. I deceided to start decorating again this year, and it has changed so much since then, it is a whole different craft now. There are new techniques it seems every day, and like scrapbooking, it just keeps getting better. So I hope you will take a look at my pictures, and if there is something that interests you, please email me. I will be putting up new pictures soon. I have some pictures of some murals that I have painted on my nephews wall in his room, and also in my sons room, so if you are interested in something like that, they will be added soon. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed looking around.
What I would like to do on my blog, is to share ideas, comments, and test different craft,scrapbooking, and cake decorating products, and let you know what I think. I am not working for any company right now, so I will be testing any product that I think that I would like to use. I would love to hear what your ideas are, and see what you have done. This is my first blog, so please bare with me. I am open to any and all tips or ideas you could give me about my blog. I will also be having contests, and will be giving away great prizes. Right now I have been busy making cakes, but I am dying to get back in my craft room, and get back to scrapping some of those piles,and piles of pictures that have been piling up. Thank You for checking out my FIRST blog. Please leave me a comment good or bad (hopefully good) If you have your own blog I would love to link up with you.
