Getting Started

Well I started this blog a year ago and all I managed to complete was the name of my blog. My life has taken a completely different turn in the last year and half. I have given up some old hobbies and started some new ones. My newest hobby now is Scrapbooking and Stamping. I am having fun incorporating stamps into my layouts. I decided to do scrapbooking the cheap way and use 8.5 by 11 paper. Well I have since learned that scrapbooking is not cheap no matter what size paper you use, and I didnt really like the 8.5 by 11 size, so I have moved onto the 12 by 12. I took some classes and was hooked.
I moved up to Campbell River and joined a Stampin Up club and loved the way all their paper and stamp pads match. I found I was spending quite a bit of money, so decided to join as a hobbyist. I have been teaching a few card classes.
My family has been supportive and enjoy looking to see what new things I have done. The kids love seeing what I have done with the pages for their scrapbook albums. My husband hates it when I drag out the camera, but has become a better sport as he knows he is not gonna get away without me taking a few pictures.
So when I am not scrapbookingor cardmaking, I am busy with my kids activities. The kids have me running just about everynight of the week. I also enjoy playing Wii games with the kids, watching the Canucks play hockey, and reading.

Hi Megan. I agree with what you said about scrap booking being expensive, but if you think about it, every hobby gets expensive when it's something you love! I look forward to seeing your work and getting to know you better!
