Well... it's been a while hasn't it?! As many of you know and those of you whom may not, I have been an avid scrapper for quite some time now, like many of you I love to preserve my families memories, while nourishing my creative side. I also thoroughly enjoy the inspiration and creativity of fellow scrappers and crafters in the scrapbooking community. In Fall of 2012 I took a break from scrapbooking and returned to school in pursuit of my childhood dream of becoming a Registered Nurse. While it was not always an easy task to be a wife, mother of five and a student, all the while keeping up my house and staying organized, I am proud to say that I did it, and I did it well! I graduated this past May with Honors! YAY!!!

With that being said, now that I have free time on my hands again, I am aching to return to my crafting table so that I can pick up where I left off!  I have been perusing around scrapbook galleries, manufacturers websites as well as some of my favorite scrappy blogs and I am overwhelmed with fact ideas seem to be spilling from me and I cannot wait to get them on paper. However, as it turns out, my return could be a while as becoming a nurse has not been the only change in my family and I also moved across the country two months ago and are still in the midst of painting, unpacking and settling in. The hold up to my returning to scrapbooking is that I have also decided to give my craft room a complete makeover. While I have really enjoyed picking out the new furniture and accessories for my new craft room, I am dreading going through the million boxes that are scattered throughout the room waiting to be sorted through. You truly have no idea how much stuff you collect until you are forced to go through it. In fact my family thought it was quite funny I had more boxes of craft supplies packed up for the move than I did kitchen boxes......hmmm.....

My plans are to begin digging into boxes either this weekend or early next week, and I'd like to blog my way through it as I transition back into the world of scrapbooking, so stay tuned, because I might even come up with some give aways and prizes!! In fact, if you leave me a link to your own blog showing that you have shared a link to my blog post today, I will enter you in a drawing to win some goodies next week and if you also become a follower, I will add your name twice! You never know what goodies I might come up with in all those boxes and shopping trips!


  1. First off congratulations on your Nursing honors! Welcome back to scrapping and to I bet a lot has changed on the site over the years but the love of scrapping still remains. I was not active on the site when you were there last but find great inspiration from all the people that post.
    I no longer have a blog in fact I deleted all of my posts on there early this year. In retrospect I kind of wish I hadn't deleted the posts but what is done is done. Sorry I can't give you a link.
    Looking forward to seeing your new layout from your new room.

  2. Congratulations! Quite the accomplishment! Welcome back to scrap booking! Hope you will join us in the forums, challenges area!- it is very inspiring there!
