On November 10 Jennifer Priest wrote a rather eloquent, and important blog posting called "Quite a few words". As I read this posting I thought I was going to cry! It is basically about the impending extintion of our LSS's if we don't do something now! This is something near and dear to my heart, not just because I am an employee of Scrapbook Blvd. but because I live scrapbooking. It is in my blood, and what will we do if there is no more LSS's? I don't want to blather on too much, but think of a world with only Michaels, JoAnns, and online stores for our scrappy supplies. No personal experience there. No one who knows your name, or your kids names. No one to help you (have you ever tried to ask for help at one of these stores? You know what I'm talkin' about. No one who knows what you like and calls you when your favorite paper comes in. No one to order that paper you need for your invitations or Christmas cards. No crops till midnight! You get the point. Please go to Jennifers blog - Hydrangea Hippo, I have a link to it here on my blog, and take the time to read this post. Hopefully, It will make everyone think about their LSS and realize it doesn't take alot to support these stores, who support us in our art of the heart. Also, I am teaching By the Sea, an acrylic album with a beach theme this Sunday. I still have some spots left, and this will be the last time I teach this class, so If your interested, come in or call Scrapbook Blvd to sign up, I'd love to see you there. That's all for now folks! Have a great day.
I live in California with my husband, and three daughters. I am an avid scrapbooker, and a Tattered Angels endorsed educator. I am also an educator for Elizabeth Craft Designs (yummy glitter). I teach scrapbooking classes at scrapbook and stamping stores in Southern California. I love using found objects in my scrapbooking, and ribbon, flowers, buttons, bling and of course Glimmer Mist and glitter make regular appearances on my scrapbook pages. My favorite subjects to photograph are my girls. I do something "scrappy" everyday.
