Today I Entered the Blog World

Today I entered the blog world and am both excited and anxious.  I decided to start a blog so that I could share my scrapbooking projects and the products that are "Close To My Heart" with others who love scrapping as much as I do.  I have always been inspired and encouraged by my very talented sister, Betsy.  She is not only talented in paper crafting  and card making She is also a wiz on all things cricut.   My Scrapping adventure started with Betsy calling me from Maryland telling me to check the newspaper, grab a coupon and run to the nearest store to pick up a cricut machine..  I have been running with coupons, picking up scrapping goodies, searching out new stores, and internet sites ever since.  Thank you,  Betsy (truly my scrapping sister ) for all your inspiration and encouragement. 

The very talented Ann Marie Governale  is another  of my wonderful mentors.  Ann Marie has been my go-to-girl for everything organized and beautiful.  She is the most generous person when it comes to sharing her time and ideas.  I watch for her daily e-mails, they are filled with inspiration and with all the newest and wonderful things out there to add to my stash or as I like to call them my "collections."  For a lovely treat check out Ann Marie’s blog  My Eclectic Spirit I thank you, Ann for everything. 

I cannot publish this blog without a huge thank you to Karen of Valentine Design and of My Desert Cottage.   I love the beautiful heading she designed.   She has been here for me all through this process.  I think working with me may qualify her for Sainthood.   Thank you Karen.  I must say this has been an adventure.

 I hope you will find inspiration and friendship here.  Grab a cup of tea or coffee and take time to browse through my site.  I would love to hear from you.  
Come back soon to see what I’ve been up to.  Thank you for stopping by.       Until next time..........
