I gathered my old photos, scanned many of them, and began scrapping.
|1985 and 1991|
I made some mini-albums - notably one for my husband's 50th birthday, and one for each of my boys (2 sons and hubby) for when they "drove race cars" in Georgia. It was really a one-day racing "school" for hubby's 50th birthday.
Then I was introduced to stamping at a Stampin Up party. Woo Hoo!! as my favorite sales rep says. And I was hooked!! hook, line, and sinker!!
I don't remember exactly when I started making cards -- but I signed up on Splitcoast Stampers to post some of my cards in 2008. You can see my online gallery here .
Finally last summer I joined the blog world. I am a teacher, so my most prolific time for creating and posting is, of course, the summer. I also seem to find this is the time that many other blogs and challenges slow down -- probably because most have young children at home.
I started to store my belongings along a wall in our dining room.
|One book shelf, and some plastic drawers - circa 2009|
You get the idea -- stuff was everywhere!!!
Here are some photos of my "scrapbook room / dining room" in November 2012.
|Table set for Thanksgiving dinner -- notice towels covering parts of the shelves and a DVD storage tower, to protect paper and stamps from sunlight|
My work space -- which was great when I didn't need the table for company!!
Well, I took the bigger room to turn into my craft room. Finally the room is done! Yipee!! Take a look at my Scrap Room tab.
