These are only a few of my favorite things from this Christmas. I guess you could say that Christmas was very rewarding for me this year. I was blessed with not just a few scrapbooking gifts, but many! As my husband says, I am now the “Scrapbooking Queen”. I am pretty sure I have enough supplies to last me a few months (hopefully) and enough storage to finally get my things organized in our tiny little place. It is now official: Lenny’s previous desk  and office space will now be turned into a full-fledged scrapbook design studio for me and my obsession with scrapbooking has now turned into an addiction that has taken over every aspect of my life (and every crevice of our already small house).

So now that I have a brand new collection of scrapbooking goodies (and a brand new list of favorite things) I figured this would be the best time to type my first post in my brand new blog. What better way to start of this upcoming new year than with a blog about something I’m completely in love with.

So here it goes…

This blog is meant to be a great source for the best scrapbooking tips, topics, techniques, and ideas all focused on how to keep your scrapbooking projects “chich, yet cheap”. I will be compiling a constant stream of information on all of the latest trends and then provide you with the steps on how to complete these fads on your layouts without burning a hole in your pocket.

Of course, I will also blog about scrapbooking in general and the ways in which it consumes my everyday life. But most importantly, my goal is to figure out the best ways to keep scrapbooking affordable for the everyday scrapper. I know how hard it can be when you want the best materials from the best designers, the latest papers, or the newest tools and you just can’t afford them, but I also know how rewarding it feels when you are able to create something amazing out of the supplies you already own. I hope this blog gives you some hope that scrapbooking can still be fun and amazing no matter how big or how small your budget is.

Trust me, if I can do it, so can you!
