Scrapping again.




That top photo is my scrap space in our upstairs. It's half playroom and half work area for my creative endeavors. I stood back and snapped this photo because it made me realize where my kids get their "love of the cluttered look" from--- me. I blame a lot of the messes around our house on them, but I definitely have to take credit for this chaos. However, if you could zoom in and also if you could get inside my head, you would find there is actually a little bit of a system within this mess. Ask me to find a certain color of pom-pom trim or a pack of buttons and I can lead you right to them. It IS a mess, but it still makes sense to me.
The real point of this post is to say that I scrapped again! I have been away from it- other than to design baby announcements and thank you notes lately and what better way to get back into it than with a box of new products. I was thrilled to win a random blog drawing from Cosmo Cricket last week. Their new product line "Chemistry" showed up at my doorstep and I already scrapped a page which you will be able to see as soon as our SIStv Fashionista Challenge goes live- at the end of this week. Get ready to have your own scrap fun!
Speaking of scrap fun, if you're up for making lots of things for the holidays this year- things like gifts for friends and family members, well then check out the link here- "30 Days to a Handmade Holiday". It's a series of classes all geared toward making your holiday season less stressful and more handmade. It's already a few days underway, but you still have time to jump in and catch up or just start from here on it.
I am excited to try some of the neat projects and I hope to make several gifts myself. My biggest challenge is making things with one hand while I've got Crew in the other. =)

Way to go Superwoman!!! I don't know how you get it all done in a day... and then find a way to be creative to boot! Can't wait to see the end product :)

There is no way to get into the scrapping without making a huge mess!
For me, anyway....
Your little Crew has the most beautiful eyes!
I always smile when I see his sweet face.

Have a good week!

Just stopped by from Ralna's, you have moved & inspired me to be a better person and Mom. Being a parent is the greatest gift we could have been blessed with! I wish I lived closer and could pop by with some warm cookies, a hug and a visit. Your family is remarkable! I love your bio, thank you for giving so much of yourself. I hope to keep in touch!

I am glad to know that I am not the only one with a less that perfect scrap booking room *wink*

Scrapping in one hand and having Crew in the other that would be a challenge but i am sure you will have conquered...Just wondering where you got that beautiful song that is constantly playing on your blog....LisaA
