Time to Get Creative!

Now that the holidays are behind us, I hope to spend more time scrapbooking. I have attended a few crops and also scrapping alot with Karissa. Yes-I'm proud to say our daughter is now a bonified scrapbooker and card maker! And I have to say, she's pretty good for only being 5 1/2. The only drawback is that she wants to use all my supplies... UGH! Yes-I'm a stingy scrapper... I'm also proud to report my Mother is now majorly into scrapbooking and attended her first retreat. She loved it! And I have converted another Scrapper. My friend Vicky is now very much into it and comes down from Asheville to crop with me once a month. She used to say I was nuts for all the stuff I owned and the money I spent on supplies and such. Now it's not unusual for her to call me from the craft stores to ask my opinion on tools, embellishments and such. So funny! AND...Todd has mentioned once or twice that we should relocate my scrapbook room to Karissa's room, move her bedroom to the guest room and make my current scrapbook room our guest room. When Karissa and I scrapbook together, we end up on the floor because we run out of table space. Believe it or not, Karissa is totally receptive to the idea. She loves being in there and many times I'll walk by the room, and find her painting or working on some sort of craft. Her bedroom is quite large (17x15) so we would have plenty of room to spread out. Just what we need, another project. By moving my room, I could also have crops at the house. We'll see what happens! Here are a few pics of my scrapbook room right now...Scrapbook Room We had a party here yesterday to celebrate Valentine's day. We grilled steaks, had a few drinks and roasted marshmellows around the bonfire pit. Shame on me, I didn't take a single picture!
