Updating My Blog!

Hello and welcome to The Scraps of My Life!
I am finally trying to get back to my sorely, neglected blog. I am giving it a bit of a new face lift, so be patient with me as I try. I luv to blog because I love to write. So, I hope to do more from here on out. It may get a bit confusing, because I have also started a written journal, which I love doing as well.
I have moved back to our home, which did not sell, and am trying slowly to pull some resemblance of my life back together.
I have re-joined the you tube scene in hopes of having a way to share a bit of myself with those who
seem to be interested in my same interests, but I am still finding, that after being gone for several years, it is pretty much as I left it sadly. But! I think I have come across a few real people and hope to find more.
I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the old/new junk journal shares and look forward to many more to come.
I have made and published a few new videos on my you tube channel should you like to take a gander at them, they are there for all to view.
I have a few ideas in my noggin, some I have started, and some are still just jotted down ideas. So, much to come just not as quickly as I would like.
I could continue on with more updates, but I think I will save them for another post!
Thanks so much for stopping in and I hope you have a blessed and prosperous life ahead!

Jasmine's Sock Monkey All Dressed Up!

This is the sock monkey I had Lynn of "Handmade Creations by Lynn", to make for my granddaughter. I made a flower for her head and a cute tu-tu for her to wear. I love how she has turned out :o) I think Jasmine will love her too don't ya think?!
Happy Creating!

“Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition"

This sweet li'l 4x4 mini album is made using Graphic 45's "Once Upon A Spring Time" paper line. Find more detail on this project Here.

This is a special 4x4 mini album I made to sell. Special because I designed a holder for it to sit in with velvet jingle bells for the feet! You will find more about this project HERE. 

This is my very first completed Family Recipe Album! The papers are by "Webster's Pages". Although it was a bit of a challenge, I created this stand for it to sit in on my kitchen desk top. I just luv the mason jar tag I created especially for this mini. You will find more details on this project here.

I created the adorable Christmas album below as a gift for my sister. I was so pleased how it turned out for her. I  used Basic Grey's Jovial paper line and stickers.  It contains some of my own hand drawn designs in it such as the snowman with the red top hat on and the snowman peeking from behind the santa pocket with felt accents on his…


I have for so very long, a few years now, wanted to make a doll house album. I have talked about it, drawn out ideas and designs for it, and mulled over it for quite some time. The only other project that took me this long to pull together was my first Recipe Album!! Yesterday, I decided on a design and today a theme! Two elements one absolutely must possess in order to create any thing at all! I was thinking I should like to have my book designed so that I can have interactive paper dolls in it. I thought that I would design them as well, but as I glanced through an old 2009 desk calendar by Mary Engelbreit, I decided I would try to use the many paper dolls I have in the magazines I have collected of hers over the years instead. I think I have found a suitable paper line as a base to start. So! Onward and upward I go in true Mary Engelbreit fashion!!
Wish me luck!
