CHA--a Winter Wonderland

When you live near a 15,000 people city, the Internet is a marvelous eye to the world.  Several of the on-line scrapbooking stores are touring Craft Hobby Assoc. booths and posting to the Internet.  I am seeing products store owners have not even seen; and gathering ideas to help with the Webb Heritage Album I started this week.  So much fun.

New papers and embellishments

The Craft Hobby Association starts tomorrow.  It is one of my favorite times.  So much activity on the Internet leading up to the show.  Company blogs have been giving a sneak preview of the new products to be introduced.  I've already seen Teresa Collins, Bo Bunny and Graphic 45 lines that I want to add to my stash.  The perfect time to be doing Heritage Albums is now.  So many of the new lines have the Vintage flavor.  Happy Saturday.

I am reposting a sketch from Tim Coffey's blog.  It is a wonderful philosophy.  He is such an amazing artist.

Important to JOURNAL

I am working on a story for the writing class I attend.  Most of my scrapbooking is heritage and the journaling is critical.  Just want to impress to the newer scrapbookers to journal.  The fastest way is to use your own hand writing, next easiest is computer.  It doesn't matter the method, just journal.

Happy New Year 2012

      It seems that I prefer to read rather than write a blog.  I follow some very good artist, Tim, Ali, Becky, Debby, Tim (Holtz and Coffey), Donna, Karen and many more.  However, today is the 3rd anniversary of our moving into our new home and I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year.
     Lots to be Thankful for, especially, our Christmas visit to Seattle and safe return.
     My New Years resolution is to record John's families in albums: Kings, Webbs, Cole, Fisher, Hutcheson and more.  I am excited for history is more exciting to me than current or future events.
