If you’re a scrapbooker, you probably have twice the tools and materials any sane crafter needs. But collecting and using all that stuff is so much fun, how can we resist?
Besides, all this great stuff brings out our creativity and saves us time. Or maybe we just like playing with it. Either way, in our world, these cool things are indispensable. (more…)
One of my favorite ways to scrapbook is with friends. Every few months, I invite friends to my house to share my tools and supplies and to work on our scrapbook pages together.
It’s always fun, but I get teased every time, because while all my scrapfriends are creating 3 or 5 or 10 pages each, I rarely finish even one!

And then, there are the ones like me—scrapbookers, imagining all that pomp and circumstance arranged on a scrapbook page. (more…)
It’s back. Whether you’re overjoyed or a little sad about it, the fall holiday season has arrived at last.
Many of us love this time of year–its aromas, decorations, and sounds, its parties, food, and family times. I hope you’re one of those people. (more…)
Birthdays. Holidays. Anniversaries. For years I snapped dozens of family photos–memories to keep forever.
