What is about scrapbooking that has me smiling...

I totally love SCRAPBOOKING! Everything about it makes me happy. When I started 8 years ago, I would have never imagined this whole FEELING... I have met SOOOOOOOOOO many wonderful people. That is one of biggest pluses! I love opening up a new idea book and absorbing all the ideas.....Walking into a scrapbook store, with nothing on my list, and leaving with bags full of goodness... I love surfing the net and blogging and reading and seeing what others are doing. This industry has come a long way.

Right now I am totally into HAMBLY OVERLAYS, chipboard albums (maya road), chipboard shapes and alphas, my new friend THICKERS, rubons, buttons, and ribbons.....

I love to go into the store with nothing in mind and come out with new toys to play with....

I have always been a creative person....I used to sew all my dolls clothes, paint rocks, draw, paint, and scrapbooking is the best of all those worlds.....

It's like being a child again.....it's my COLORING BOOK if you will....

This is a hobby that I am glad I found! It's now a way of life for me...

Just can't imagine myself doing anything else....

It has also opened up the door for me to try other things, like card making, sewing, jewelry making, doll making and GET THIS ADRIENNE, knitting....

My mother in law (God help me....LOL) is going to teach me on Sundays....

I love having something to do....my own hobby...

Dh has xbox, plays basketball, and loves to dj

I have something to occupy my time and I LOVE IT!

This was my first passion as soon as I realized that I had been keeping scrapbooks and photos all my life! I still have my old albums with home made decorations and doodles. But when I get to NJ next week, watch out! I'm coming with 3 empty suitcases and hitting every scrap store I can find!
