Grateful for so many things but today is about Scrappy world.....
I just wanted to take the time to say Thanks to all the people that keep up blogs with tutorials, video's , how to's ,sketches,contests, Fun , Designing, Scrappy cards and layouts.

I am so grateful to have so many friends that I have met via the internet some even in real life. It's touched my life in so many ways.. I even met a gal that we are good friends via the internet and we share the same birthday we are best of friends even have some of those that I don't share the same birthday but if you need them at a drop of a hat they will offer to do whatever it is. Most Scrappy girls are true gems.

My Best BFF doesn't blog and she can't be replaced.  She doesn't scrap that's ok we use to craft together but it's just not her thing as time grew, but she does love crafty things she has friends who make aprons, other scrappy gals but as I said she just doesn't do it. She has a beautiful Emma sewing machine and some day I think upon retirement she will do it we both talk about quilting someday and I do hope that happens but right now I don't even know how to sew I hope to learn sometime.. So many cute things that's for sure.. Just the other day I seen a cute wallet I would love to have in Coffee Material ahhh but alas I don't sew lol....

You know there is a lot of work that goes into Video's, hops, tutorials, design team... I have been on both sides of the coin. I appreciate each and Everyone of the designers that take their time to share their love of the craft to us.  I don't think they get enough recongition for what they do.  Yes they are compensated with product from manufacturers sometimes with product , but some people do it without the compensation.
Even the people getting compensated doesn't mean it's for all the work they do it's for the love of the craft not so much how much they get. It takes time to color with copics, think of an idea, do a schedule post, photograph the product , They do it for the love which I am grateful for.

So this is just a big thank you especially this season I have notice so much generousity on blogs , giveaways, people who pay it forward to less fortunate them themselves they don't keep it they give it to a friend who simply would love it but can't afford it. I tell you I am very sentimental about this because I have so many friends that are designers and I see what they do and how hard they work and I just want to say how much
I appreciate each and everyone who keeps a blog, posts, designs and shares..

Happy Thanksgiving to you all and Thanks for all you do in the Scrappy World.

I have been Obsessed with this Camera since Last Year

I really, really wish they would have a screaming deal at some point on this Camera a friend of mine had it last year and well he generally forgets to give us the photo's but I took a couple and it's like just the ease and beauty the pictures were gorgeous... He is a real camera buff... but I cannot stop wanting it lol... I guess it's worse with all the life changes you want to capture. The point and shoot I have is ok but this  I can even carry in my purse lol.. Yes I carry a big purse... Ahhhh.. Maybe Santa will drop it in my stocking.... Not thinking so but I thought I'd share this  Dh is a total Nikon Man basically thats mostly the only camera I've had and Sony point and shoot , but he is not gonna talk me out of this.. Lol...

Been "Busy with these Mini's for my sweet Niece

I didn't want to picture heavy it to much but the shape was different for me that's for sure. It was fun to do because she truly appreciates everything that I work on for her.   She makes me very proud she is a great student, volunteers, keeps up grades, great to her family... So I got this off in the mail and can work on a couple other projects. I will have another for her to do but can give her when I see her at Thanksgiving.. It feels so good to be scrappin again. It's been a long time.....
