I graduated in college in 2002 with a Liberal Arts degree, now I do math! How does that happen?
I'm very involved in our local Bookcrossing group, the Rubber City Book Posse and I love to read, write and express myself in every way possible.
I just started physically scrapping in June 2008, and it's really cool so far. However, I'd done mixed media art projects, rubber stamping and card making for a few years, thanks to
I used to be a web designer, sports girl, newspaper assistant, bookseller, etc.
I take Wilton Cake Decorating Classes, have partial ownership of a black lab and have even less control of two cats, Max and Peeves. When I grow up, if I absolutely have to, I want to be a writer and live in Disneyland.

Three of my favorite pop culture things, in any order:
-Nightmare Before Christmas
-Batman (anything!)
-Marilyn Monroe

Maybe it's the season, or perhaps it's just that I finished writing my novel in a month, but I'm inspired and I want to create.

The question is, what to create?

I have ideas, but I don't have pictures for most (they're unfortunately trapped on a computer and not printed). And the ones I do have pictures of are not inspiring. And I'm out of cards, which I want to create but don't want to use my cardstock because I never make them even.

I have product, picked up some wassail papers and some urban prairie paper (which I use to substitute the Sassafrass Lass and Cosmo Cricket unavailable at my local chain on my 'I have to BUY!' jaunts. And my old neighbors picked up a kit of scrapbooking materials for my gift--it's beautiful and also has my very own (and very first) scrapbooking tote. Yay! I can hold my head up high as I plan for a 2009 crop (which will be my first official one).

I'm going to plan on getting some things in California. I've even made notes with directions around the places I'll be in the hopes that I'll be able to get some amazing materials that I couldn't find locally. Yes, for the most part this trip will be for me. I'm not buying 2,000 people souvenirs this time.

So what's a girl to do? I'll put my nose to the grindstone. Pick up some cards at my local paper factory. Look through and use my free picture vouchers for printing and find a way to use those 'uninspiring' pictures. Yeah, that's what I'm going to do.

Sounds good, right? Now I've just gotta convince myself. LOL.
