About Me


“I’ve admitted the addiction and I’m in a great 12×12 step program…”

I am obsessed with scrapbooking and I know you are too! I think about it, talk about it, and do it any chance I get. I love to shop as much as I love to crop. My blog has: product reviews, industry news, scrapbook novels, organization ideas, my shopping finds, and just general scrapbook topics. There are so many scrap blogs out there where the author journals about their life and shares their pages. I wanted my blog to be a little different. Hope you enjoy!

    I need the information you are providing. New to this whole thing….it’s overwhelming! Need help just getting started. I find myself buying, buying and buying some more and not producing. Taken 2 basic classes. Appreciate your contribution and the different style of blog you have available to us. Keep up the good job…it’s endless the possibilities.

    Hey, recently found your blog while surfing and I absolutely LOVE it. It is a little different from other blogs in that it gives more outside info on new products, etc. that not all blogs do. Nyway, just wanted to say thanks for being here. ~Milly

    Gypsy – to buy or not to buy? Help! I read your September 2009 blog on the Gypsy and need to know, desperately need to know, if you purchased one? I currently own the Expression and really like portability of the Gypsy and the additional features (welding). However, the product reviews range from far left to far right. You either hate or love it and I have no idea what to do. Haters are upset that once a cartridge is loaded it can never be loaded on another Gypsy (even if yours breaks or is stolen), they also talk about small screen and no instructions. Lovers boast on being able to create pages while sitting in school car lines, welding letters and search functions. So tell me, did you buy? Do you think provo craft will come out with new model in the near future? Please advice, what to do – but Gypsy or invest in the market? Remember, stocks are low!

    Wow … I’ve been enjoying your blog for ages and LOVE it! Just made the connection that you’re the same person I talked to yesterday. How fun is that?!!! I SO relate to your comment about being in a great 12 x 12 step program.

    Hugs, from your new friend in TX,

    Hi Erika,

    Well I was just browsing the internet and I came across Memory Works….and I most say WOW!!! I love their products. I pretty much fell in love with everything :) So how does ordering work? I’m also thinking about signing on, so if I do I will definitely use your number. Well hope to hear from you soon.

    I’ve been considering this for awhile, but would like the real nuts-n-bolts of the costs and income potential before biting the bullet. I already have a full-time job and am a wife and mother, so I don’t have the time to be a daily blogger etc…..

    Love your site! Came here through Pinterest. I am a graphic designer who is also very addicted to memory keeping, PL and Smashing. I recently began designing “printables” and currently sell them in my ETSY shop. I would love it if you would visit my web site and click on the link to see my journal cards. I send out freebies every Monday via newsletter so be sure to subscribe!!
    Not sure if you have guest posters but would love to do a blog entry for you…a featured blog or site would be great, too!!
    Thank you,

    Hi, I am trying to get the word out! I design scrapbook papers for “men & boys” using my photos. Everything is backgrounds of tractors, wood piles, wood walls, stones and so much more. I am the only one in the United States that has the license to use logos of International Harvester tractors and so many designs are using the logos. Great for farmers, FFA projects, and 4-H projects. Please if anyone is interested, check out my website and happy scrapping.

    Hi, just wondering what happened to your blog? I used to get emails when you posted. I’ve had a lot going on, so I thought I might have missed the emails, but I see you haven’t posted since October. Hope all is well!
