welcome to my blog!
Hi, I’m Annie. I am a mother of two, happily married to a wonderful and loving husband for 17 years. My blog is a place where I hope to capture and share snippets of our day to day life, as well as share scrapbook layouts that I create from photos of those moments.
I have been in love with arts & crafts my whole life! I kept diaries/journals throughout my childhood, and loved to doodle and sketch, and write poetry. Although I started scrapbooking in high school, there was a long period where I stopped. I then rediscovered my love for the hobby when my daughter was born in 2004, and it definitely wasn’t the same scrapbooking I did in high school, where I mainly doodled and cut out pictures from magazines, did some art work and glued them in my scrapbook. I also fell in love with watercolors in high school, and still love using paints and other mixed media on my layouts today. I love to scrapbook as it just gives me a great creative outlet – when I am creating, I am in my happy place! I am a continuous work in progress, always looking for ways to improve myself and my work.
