Happy Mother's Day!

When meeting a sister scrapper, we talk about favorite papers, the best local and online scrapbook supply shops, and the same question usually surfaces: "How long have you scrapped?" And so often, the answer is, "When I had my first child..." When expecting that baby, many of us get that nesting urge, and not surprisingly, after that sweet little one makes his or her debut into this world, we get the urge to document it. Photo albums, baby books... and scrapbooks!

I started scrapping kids, too, but my sisters' kids. Then I did my wedding album, and when I ran out of pictures, I did pages inspired by my cat (my fur baby). When I finally got my twin boys, I was so happy to do some cutie baby pages. Of course, now most of my personal scrapbook pages are dominated by those sweet boys...

So, to all the moms out there, whether they have little ones, grown ones, furry ones, or are that friend that "mothers" and looks out for all her girlfriends -
Happy Mother's Day!

A Glorious Morning!

Is it safe to say it? Will I jinx it?

deep breath

Spring is here! It really is here! The grass is green and the flowers are starting to bloom! I got my first sunburn of the season, which is another sign that the snow and cold should be gone for good... besides, it is May for goodness sake.

I was at the Flint Farmer's Market in Michigan, one of the coolest venues I have done. Fresh fruit, live music, and for the first time, art vendors! I had a booth with my sister, selling some pretty altered art and such, and talking scrapbooking with sweet ladies. I also bought some vintage books and fresh strawberries :)
