How Much Fun Is This?

Have you ever just taken a minute to think about how much joy and satisfaction our hobbies bring us? Whether it's shopping (scrapping is an accumulation hobby, you know) for new stuff, getting home and playing with the new stuff, talking to friends about the new stuff or just sharing our pictures with others, we all get something out of our time spent on our hobby.

On Saturday, May 3 we take a day to celebrate with those who share our passion. It is the celebration of National Scrapbook Day and there are events everywhere. If you want to take the day, your local scrapbook stores or consultants will be happy to accommodate. Don't have the whole day to give, at least take an hour to do something related to scrapbooking. Celebrate the thing that brings you joy.

Scrapbook Territory is having a 12 hour crop, Scrapbook Depot is having an all day affair (waiting list only) as is Scrapbook Island (possibly a spot or two left.)

I hope that you all find some way to share your giggles with those who understand what you are giggling about. I leave you with a photo of some fabulous ladies who renewed/refined their rubber stamping skills with me this past week.

Hero Arts Blog and More

For those of you not on their regular mailing list, you should check out the new Hero Arts Blog It is FABULOUS. They premiered it this week and are doing a weekly challenge and contest. One of their first contributors was none other than Tim Holtz. Become a regular subscriber to their card and/or scrapbook newsletter. You won't be sorry. The ideas are great.

April schedule is to the right. Details for the classes were in the e-mail I sent out so check your mail. Not on the mailing list? Drop me a line at and request to be added. The more the merrier.

NATIONAL SCRAPBOOK DAY is just around the corner. Lots of events at your local scrapbook stores so check in with them for details.

I hope that you are enjoying the spring weather. I leave you with a picture from our recent trip to San Juan Capistrano to see the swallows return.

Have a great week.....
