Bliss Squared

Hey Guys!

So basically I'm still floating on air over the news I received on April 1st.  And in case I haven't shared it with you personally (btw sorry about that, I really meant to call) here it is... Lindy's Stamp Gang asked me to join their Design Team! OMG!

Okay, so when I got the email, I must have read it five times.  I turn and wake my husband up (at this point it's well past midnight... why up so late? you might wonder... scrapping of course!) I have him read the email to confirm that it's real (not sure why, it's not like he's an expert email authenticator or something.) But "yes" he declares, "it looks real, honey" as he rolls over and continues the symphony of snores he plays for me nightly.  And there it is... just like that.  Turns out that a youtube friend, CynthiaLooWho, recommended me!  I was surprised, and flattered, and nervous all at once! That's when I decided to start this blog! So here I am... taking it to the next level... and just putting myself out there!

I started working on scrapbooks about 15 years ago, but it wasn't until this past year (2010) that I became obsessed passionately committed to the craft.  My baby girl, Megan, left for college, and I cried myself to sleep for about a week, okay maybe two. That's when my sister, Yvette, emailed me some links to some scrapbooking videos she found on YouTube.  And that's when I finally stopped crying!  Finding a whole community of people, that share the love for paper crafting, as much as I do, was just what I needed to keep me busy, distracted, and it totally re-energized my scrapping "mojo." Suddenly, I didn't miss Megan as much... but "shhhh" don't tell her I said that! LOL!

Well guys, thanks for visiting! I'm off to finish some projects with my new Magical Micas from Lindy's Stamp Gang!  Hope you come back!  Lindy's Blog Hop is set for April 11, check it out if you can, you'll be sure to enjoy some awesome projects from some very talented ladies!

Hasta Luego Amigos!

My baby girl... Megan
