Scrappy Times

Posted by barb on Aug 25, 2010 in Crafty Me, Pictures |

I haven’t been scrapping very much lately…as many of you know, 2010 has been a difficult year, so motivation to do much other than go to bed has been pretty low. ┬áThen, when I would want to scrap, I’m faced with this mess:

My scrapping corner before my scrapbox

Yeah. I have to navigate the mess, a commitment just to get started. So…no scrapping.

Enter the scrapbook convention and The Original Scrapbox. After much discussion, Andrew and I decided that it would make both of our lives a little better – mine because I could scrap again with an organized area, and his because he wouldn’t have to stare at that mess in the living room all the time.

Here’s the result:

My scrapping empire, all closed up
When I am scrapping
My scrapping empire while scrapping

Going up to Laurie’s to scrap this weekend inspired me to finish getting all of my scrapping stuff put away (I’d done most of it as of a couple weeks ago, but still had a few little bits of stuff hanging out until this past weekend).

Finally got back to my 2006 pictures, doing a few at Laurie’s, and continuing Sunday and after work Monday and today. It feels so good to be creative again. Here are a couple of my favorite layouts from the past few days’ efforts:
