It all started with a few sheets of pretty paper...

Do you want to get the attention of 86 women in a crowd of 100?
Yes this a total addiction... is there a group for this? yes ...
 enablers unite... we are collecting something?
 My favorite words:

 any thing crafty, paper, artsy, hobby store, creative , paint, ink.... you get it?
 Yes or you have left by now....
I have been trying to let go "LESS" it is so hard, so lately I am called to young mom's  you know them the 25-33 year old mom with 2.5 children , a dog, a mortgage, photo snapping super mom!
Invite them , share your stuff, heck give a box of it away (you won't miss it)
SHARE  your craft whatever it is  NO scrap booking is not dying... it has a changed ..
 lets get it done quickly....Project Life, Instagram, .
go back where did you start?  I love all things paper 
WHY? did you start ...

Please leave a comment... I will be giving away this stamp from Elle's Studio on January 24th,
 Just in time for Valentine's projects....
This is the Good Life ... lets enjoy it....
 BTW we went for one year follow up this week so far all is GOOD!
thanks for stopping by,
Kathy

My sister got me started around fifteen years ago at a Creative Memories party. Fast forward and I have a scrapbook room full of papers, inks, and stamps I love to play with and a host of wonderful friends I have met thru this beloved craft.

I started because a friend won a scrap party. Today, she is no longer scrapping but I am. I loved yearbook in HS and I love scrapping in AL...adult Life.

I started scrapbooking when my sister introduced me to Creative Memories. I did it for a couple of years, then stopped. Then 7 or so years ago, I stopped at a new scrapbook store, Scrap Etc. and all the beautiful products got me back into scrapbooking. Then I lost interest again, but this time, I've collected a lot of stuff. I need to give mine away (I can't deal with trying to sell it), but it's very difficult to part with any of it. So, please don't include me in the drawing for the stamp. Although I love it, I won't use it, and it should be used and loved by someone. Thanks!

I have such a compulusive personnality, I am not even quite sure where I started. I think it was when I worked for QVC, I started collecting and then sharing what I collected and a friend and I decided to give it a try when we reallized how many LSS there were in our area, we went to one to scrapbook and the rest is history

I am not sure where I started. I have a compulsive personality and started "collecting" when i worked for QVC. Then I started sharing what I collected. Then, when a friend and I realized we had several LSS, we went to one to scrapbook an the rest is history.

Actually I have scrapbooks that I made in the 50s when I was in high school....needless to say...scrapbooking has changed dramatically in the last 60 years. I started "collecting" about 25 years ago and when SK opened..jumped in with both feet. I would love to share some of my stash with young moms who "need" to get started while their kids are young...don't wait til you have great grandchildren to start. It's REALLY HARD to catch up!!
