So, Friday I got spoiled and left my kids with their Grandpa and Grandma Moon and headed out to the Portland CKU Scrapbook Convention. It was really fun to spend a day looking at scrapbook stuff, going to a few classes, and buying a few things. I got some good deals and got to see everything fun and new. I went to a class taught by Ali Edwards. She is so fun!! I have loved her books, her monthly articles in Creating Keepsakes, and I check her blog daily. She scrapbooks everyday moments and I have been so inspired by her work. She calls scrapbookers “Life Artists”, I LOVE THAT!! So fitting. Her class was just as inspiring as everything else she has done. She also brought a bunch of her scrapbooks that she let us look through! So fun! And, best of all, I won her new book from her class. Very excited!! Here is a photo of the book and the link to it below.
Another thing I did at the convention was sign up for the Cocoa Daisy kit of the month club. I just signed up for 6 months (they had a great deal going on) and we’ll see if I commit to more than that. I don’t liked being locked into spending money. I have bought their kits before so I am super excited to be getting more from them. I put their link below if any are interested. I have their January 2007, July 2007, September 2007, and now their March 2008!! Love it!!
Oh, I found a picture of all the items in the Cocoa Daisy July Kits!!!! This is one I brought home from the convention. Look at all those fun pink and orange, birds and flowers. So fun, I played with this kit last night to make a page for Isabelle!! I’ll post later.
So, I have been scrapbooking the last couple days. So determined to keep this going in my life on a weekly basis. I love the idea of doing a page a week. That is 52 pages a year!! Wow, if I could do that I think I could catch up and stay caught up with all I want to do. This new little one is scaring me in the scrapbook/documenting department. Now I need to keep up with three little people and our family and holidays and….the list goes on and on. So, I will post my most recent pages soon. Sorry I haven’t been posting photos, I haven’t been taking any! I promise to post more soon.
And, just so you don’t think that I have forgotten, I will be back to organizing this Monday. Still determined to get my life completely filed, boxed, labeled, contained, and in order. We’ll see how I do!
