musings...

so i went to a craft store today and the cashier ringing me up saw i was buying some cardstock and some stickers and she said "oh are you a big scrapbooker". i NEVER know how to answer that question. um, well i am sure she didn't want to know that i owned a wholesale company that specializes in scrapbooking and all the nitty gritty details of that. so i just nodded and said "yeah sometimes" - which is true b/c i find my SBing ebbs and flows.

right now i have 2 projects to work on - i was inspired by MG on 2ps from NSD to do a concept album which i am trying to finish up and then i need to work on the baby announcements. the hard part is that we haven't decided on a name. the other hard part is my mom wants like 40 announcements. add that to the ones my MIL wants and the ones we want and i am looking at 80 baby announcements. wowizers that is a lot.

david wants to just print them out or do them digital but i am like "dude we have a scrapbooking company and enough patterned paper and cardstock to have 10 babies with 80 announcements each - why not use them?" i have the concept done in my mind. now comes the execution.


if you all are looking for a mom's day (or grandma's day) gift to make, try this mini brag book! i made it using Maya Road's foundations chipboards, Maya Road Journey Ribbons and also what i am most proud of - the SoHo Bloom Ribbon slides as the cover closers (just tie ribbon through 2 of the ears). then you just need some BG patterned paper and BG stickers and cardstock and it is so easy to do!

Very cool books. What a great idea. Too bad I didn't see this before Mother's Day.
