Did you know this about me?
So, many of you know that I am taking a cake decorating class through
Wilton. Did you know that I like to do many other things as well. When I was very little I had contracted Polio. I love the out doors but It is often hard for me to go on hikes and rock climb. So most of my college years I got myself into drawing. I love to draw portrates in pencil. Now, I'm not one of those people who can draw just by looking at someone. I need a picture in front of me and lots of time to make mistakes. I usually can go through a half of an eraser for about 5 pictures. (smile) I love the outcome. It's something that can last. Like a snap shot it is freezing a moment in time forever.
I have not been able to draw much since my kids have been born. I hope to someday start again. The picture of the older man is my husbands father who passed away a while back. The picture of the couple is of my husband and I when we were dating. The picture of a young lady is just someone I got out of a magazine to practice.
My other love is scrapbooking. I've always liked this and hope to someday start a business of my own. Creating other peoples scrapbooks who would love to have one but just don't have the time or the skill they would like.
Now when you find a good thing you just want to share it with all your friends. When I scrapbook I like to go on line and see up coming tools or ideas. There is a web site that I always go to. I've used some of their products and am excited to use more. One I would like to try is "Sara's Surfaces." At the top of my blog is their link. Click on it and you will go to their site. I just want to share it with everyone because I love it. I love looking at their weekly webisodes. For all you scrapbookers please check this out. Their products are fun fast and easy to do! It's "Paper Wishes by Hot off the Press" When I save enough money I am going to try some of their templets. The Tag templet look really fun!
Just thought you might like to know a little bit about me. Scrapbooking calms me down and I just get to focus on what I am doing with out any distractions! Most of the time I scrapbook late at night when the kids go to bed. I call it my mommy time. We all have it late at night. (smile)
