Jamie’s Journal

So, I’m changing up my blog a little.  The colors I had were just too dark and I wasn’t thrilled with the layout when I started putting things together.  It’s still a work in progress, but so is pretty much everything else in my life!  I’ve got a few new layouts I need to post and some others I need to work on–I have so many ideas in my head, I just need to get them done.  I’m also trying to organize my scrap space a little more–I even have encouragement from my DH to spend money to get more storage (he wants everything to be more coordinating and hidden as much as possible).  I don’t have a problem spending money, and I guess I’ll let him have a little say in things since he does enable and encourage me, as well as building me a beautiful desk and cabinets for my office/scrapspace (which he has to look at everyday).  So, it looks like I’d better get busy!


I’ve just recently discovered Etsy.  If you don’t know what this is, it’s a website for people to sell handmade or vintage items.  There are all kinds of goodies on there from clothes and soap to scrapbooking supplies.  Loads of inspiration with every click–handmade tags, crocheted flowers, and the list goes on.  So, if you have a few minutes (or a few hours), stop by there and look around.

Today is the day–I’m finally starting my blog.  I’ve been planning to do this for a while, but get distracted by other things (namely 3 kids).  I’ll try to keep things current, but this is part of my relaxation experience with scrapbooking, so I don’t want to feel like I HAVE TO update daily.  Anyway, I hope you’ll join me as I regroup, reorganize, and replenish my stash now that I am back from my “time out”.
