Craft Room Surprise

I just had to share how fabulous my hubby is. While I was at work and at my hair appointment, he was hard at work cleaning out the garage and rearranging the living room. I knew nothing of this until I got home around 9:30 pm. When I walked in, I was pretty surprised. I knew he had moved the desk from the downstairs living room to my craft room upstairs. He kept telling me that my craft room was a mess as he didn't know how I would want it arranged and he didn't know where to put anything. Well, he kept pushing me to go to the craft room....which I was dreading as I was anticipating a MESS.

Well, low and behold, I had a huge surprise when I opened the door. My husband had not only moved the desk in there, but he had gone ahead and set it up as well as organized it so that I have a space to scrap and do crafts. He moved the other desk that was in there around so that I have space to setup my Cricut and other tools and still have room to move. :)

Wasn't that just awesome of him? I can't wait to start working in it.

Shopping Sites??

Well, I've been looking at the craft stores (i.e. Michael's & AC Moore) as well as Wal-Mart and Target for an assorted pack of embellishments as well as some "bling" to add to my scrapbook pages and craft projects. I can't seem to find any embellishment assortment packets that have a variety of items. I also haven't been able to find any "bling". I guess I'm going to have to do some digging into some online sites to see what I can find. The only bad thing about that is that I'm working on a project that I need some embellishments/bling for and can't seem to find what I'm looking for. If you have any suggestions on sites or places to look, please leave me a comment. I would appreciate any suggestions you have.

Also, I've been browsing through the blogs I follow/subscribe to and reading through the message boards at and really like the way projects turn out when they are embossed. I guess my next "big" purchase, if I can convince my hubby :), will be an embossing tool/machine.

Welcome - First Post

Wow, my 1st post...

I am new to the world of scrapbooking. My MIL got me into it a couple of months ago and I've slowly gotten more and more into it...I'm a work in progress. :) I am "addicted" to the variety of accessories, paper, etc that are available. Anytime I go to a craft store, I automatically go to the Scrapbooking section to see what new items they have and what's on sale. ;) I tend to buy quite a few stickers with each trip...even though I have a Cricut Create and could create my own embellishments.

I'm creating this blog in hopes of being able to share some of my projects. I enjoy visiting blogs of fellow "scrappers" and seeing their amazing creations. Although I'm not nearly as creative, I thought it might be fun.

Thanks for stopping by!
