About Me

Welcome to my little corner! I am addicted to scrapbooking, hence the name of my blog. I keep this blog for myself, family and friends! But also to track my journey from where I was, to where I am and to what I hope and aspire to become!

I am married to a wonderful man name Dave. We live in beautiful , Ontario (Canada). He has blessed me with three beautiful children, Sophie, Casey and Charlie. They are my greatest accomplishments and inspiration. It does get crazy with having three little one's so close in age, but I would not change a minute of it! To say the least, it is the only crazy I know! I also work for a major manufacturing company.

Behind the addiction of scrapbooking...

A few years back my mother and sister tried to get me into scrapbooking and well, it just didn't take. I don’t know why, maybe I just wasn’t inspired, but I tried it and that was it. However, when Sophie was born I found myself saving every little thing and writing down everything and anything about our journey together and motherhood. Casey was born in early 2009 and a few months later, I met a woman who re-introduced me to scrapbooking. By that fall, scrapbooking was now a good hobby. Every Sunday my girlfriend and I would get together for an afternoon of scraps session. We had the basics and often would buy the generic pre-cut scrapbook kits and complete those. Then I graduated to buying a Cricut, hitting a few scrapbook stores, and trying product here and there. When I found out that I was pregnant with my Charlie I thought it was a great chance to scrap a life from the start! I also wanted to make sure I had “me” time and scrapbooking filled that need perfectly. I was then turned on to a scrapbooking store that had monthly kits that varied from month to month. Scrapping Great Deals is my store! So as a birthday gift to myself, I subscribed to receive them! My style completely changed! Because there was such a variety of various things, I got to experiment and explore a whole new world. Since my little town did not have a local store that I could go take classes in, I started to search the web and discovered the various blogs and tutorials to help me on my journey. But my monthly treat is getting together with my girls at SGD for a 12 hour crop!!! And well, the first step with addiction is admittance. I’m addicted. I get up make breakfast for the kids and while they eat, I grab my coffee and start my blog surfing. I'm marking down latest trends, sketch options, new releases and tutorials. I go about my day and at night when the kids are asleep, I can craft and create or try to learn some more! Yep, I’m hooked! If there's any way I can get my skill to grow, I am on it! And I encourage my kids to do the same. I am now on the DT team for SGD!! My newest venture is a DT member of Let's Get Sketchy.
