Hello! I have been scrapbooking for about 9 years now, but off and on. My greatest challenge outside of time and money is organization and stepping out of the box. Of course space needs, but that won’t change until the girls are grown and gone from the house.
I live in sunny Florida, but hate the heat, palm trees and pink flamingos! LOL!!
I collect Dept. 56 and Mary Moo Moo’s. I love country craft and roosters! I don’t like precious moments or too much flowery stuff.
Between my girls and my job, I find little time to do much of anything else. My oldest daughter plays softball, so that keeps us busy and my job involves planning special events like parades & festivals. My youngest daughter just started Kindergarten this year and I am quickly realizing how fast life passes by.
I love this message board and the inspiration that it gives!
