Checking in. What's been going on around here.

For the past several months I’ve really gotten back into card making. Card making is what got me started in scrapbooking to begin with many years ago (technically I wasn’t so much card making as I was buying card making supplies, but that’s irrelevant).

But at Christmas I decided to make my Christmas cards again and it just snowballed from there. But I’m loving it and I’m planning to stick with it. When I sit down to scrapbook, I very rarely have my photos prepared so card making allows me to paper craft and use my supplies without having to have any photos printed! It’s a win.

Now my problem is that I put off taking photos of them for months and then take them all at once. But last weekend I took pictures of about 35 that have been just sitting in a pile waiting on me. So I’ve started posting them on my Instagram account. Yay! I’d love it if you followed me over there @shelliemariecrafts

I plan to share more thorough posts on this blog and I’m looking forward to it. It’s great to be excited about my crafting again. I’d hit a bit of a lull just not knowing what I was doing and where I was going with it. Being single and childless sometimes makes it harder for me to feel like I fit in the scrapbooking world sometimes - but I’m finding my niche.

I’ve also been going to monthly crops at my local scrapbooking store Scrapbooking Life. I went to my first crop ever in April and I just loved it. I got sooooo much done and the ladies there were so nice. So I also went to the crops in May, June and this past weekend in July. I just love it so much. Three solid days of nothing but scrapbooking, card making and super sweet people.

Anyway, I just wanted to pop in and say hi and post a little update about what’s been going on around here. Things should be picking up around here soon. I have some fun idea and big plans!

Talk to you soon,
