When I have free time (read next to never) and I am not wasting it on the computer (read which is nearly always) I scrapbook. I love anything to do with art. Once upon a time, before my spawn came along, I took art classes. I drew, I painted, I designed. I at one point was planning on being a graphic artist. In highschool I had hoped to become an animator. HAHAHA, so NOT how I turned out. I am neither a graphic designer nor an animator, the closest I get to art work is when I cut out construction paper letters for my bulletin board. (I am an elementary school science teacher at the moment.) So I get my art fix from scrapbooking, which I adore. I love paper. I could buy paper for days. I probably have enough paper to scrap a thousand books. But I always find a reason to buy more, mostly because it goes on sale, and who can resist an opportunity to SAVE money!
So that was the long introduction to why you will suddenly be seeing pictures of my scrapbook pages...especially now that the scanner is in good working order. So without further adieu, here is my latest project, a friend wordbloom book (you can purchase blank books here: Scrapbook Corner ) This book is all about my very special internet buddies that I made when I was pregnant with baby girl.
