Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

Hi there! I’m Andrea, owner of this blog. My goal is to share my scrapping, stamping and general crafting experiences with you – what works for me, what doesn’t and what is evolving! I absolutely love crafting in general having started at a very young age. Drawing was always a passion, using colored pencils, crayons and paper to pass the time growing up. I redrew album covers, colored in numerous coloring books and even wrote to penpals across the whole country! The mailman was my best friend!! To this day, I love getting good ole snail mail, well everything except bills of course. 😉

I have been rubber stamping since 1997 and scrapbooking since 1998. I really can not find a specific word to describe my style – I just love to work with any product to see what I can come up with!
