Back to Scraps

I am a scrapbook-er. I love the use of paper to get a message across. What is more for me it is a type of therapy. When James has given me a rotten time as all children do at some point, I can use my scrapbooking to remind me why I love this little boy so much. If I am just feeling down it brings a smile to my face and I feel as though I have accomplished something by saving a memory or really just creating something that is my own. Some day James and Miah will be able to look back on their childhood and really see it through these pages. Now I am aware that this is not for every one and I would never ever expect every one else to get the same joy from it and the needed calm sometimes that I do, but if you do love it like me drop me a line.

Any way with the last few months I have been away from my scrapbooking due to a new obsession with the computer and all the Yahoo boards and information sites. I literally logged on to my computer upwards of 20 times a day looking for any information on referrals, and then on TAs. Well now that all of that is done I find that I have much more time in my day... go figure.. and I have found my love again with a whole new passion as I get to scrap for my daughter now. I have started her a Life/scrap book for her, but it is not her "Scrapbook" However I did do the first page for her this week and I was so excited about it!! Her first page is here now for you to see, and I am also putting up a few of James that I just completed as well. Enjoy!

Congrats on Miah. She is beautiful..can't wait to see what her hair looks like when you pick her up :) I too am a scrap booker (a beginner)and I love it!! We are waiting for #2 from China. The whole experience is incredible, probably the only thing that will make the wait bearable is knowing this. We haven't been logged in yet, but should be shortly. Meanwhile I'll keep scrapping and watching others!!
