A new venture???

Well I've been aware of Etsy for a long time now, as a lot of people are. My mom and sister have tried to encourage me to start my own shop on there to sell my scrap goodies. I've thought about it a lot and I'm kinda leaning towards opening my own shop. I haven't gone that far yet, but I have joined, so I have the option. Its something nice to play around

I've been trying to rationalize with myself on doing this, I know I scrap for fun and to keep my memories in a way that I think is pretty and will preserve them. And I have a few family members that expect to get layouts or mini albums for almost every holiday, so I usually have some laying around. So I think I might do it and see how it goes....... lol trying to convince myself I guess! Well I'll just start out with making a banner and avatar for my shop and then will see where I go from there.......

gone awhile, back again

Ok, so it’s been forever again since I blogged, but there’s been so much going on!!! The kiddos have started school; we’ve all been sick, ear drums bursting again!! Kids loosing teeth, family moving back and all kinds of crazy stuff!! But I have to say, I love it all. I’m happy to be with my family when their sick, I’m glad to know I can be there for them.
I have to say I’ve also had some fun going on too. Like I said I had family move back, that’s been in the last 2 weeks, and it’s great. My sister and her little girl are here now!! I’m loving it!! I’m getting to see my sister more and getting to know my niece more as well and it’s great. Me and my sister have been making bows for her little girl, so that’s been kind of new and fun!
But I’ve been scrapbooking too!! Lol. I think I’ve made like eight mini albums, well one is an art journal, and I’ve done some page layouts and some altered art stuff. I’m kind of a night owl, lol. So when everyone’s asleep, I get to get some of my fun stuff done, no interruption.
But since its been so long since I’ve blogged, I thought I’d share a few parts of the things I’ve been doing. And I have tons more that I’ll be sharing soon. So anyways, here are some bits and pieces of my projects…..

Ok so I know its bits and pieces here and there. I didnt show a full album, but I have tons that I've done. And there are so many scrapbook lines that I've bought and need to use!! More and more to come!!

I've been playing around with the challenge Websters pages has issued. Webster's Pages October Monthly Challenge: Dress a Dress Form. As soon as I'm finished I'll post pictures of it as well! Well that's all for now. Back again soon.
