My approach to scrapbooking is simple and practical: basic supplies, small albums, and a focus on storytelling. I like combining traditional scrapbooking (cardstock and sewing) with modern technology (apps!).
My scrapbooking wasn’t always like that, however. When I started in 2001, I used the 12×12 size and followed all the latest trends and techniques. I was published in several magazines, participated on design teams, and won a few design contests. But eventually I became overwhelmed with all the supplies and unfinished pages I’d accumulated, and I quit scrapbooking for about three years.
After my break, I got rid of most of my supplies, finally figured out what I wanted out of scrapbooking, and I haven’t felt overwhelmed or behind since!
I started this blog to share my journey – both past and present.
When I’m not scrapbooking, I can be found doing laundry, rearranging furniture, painting, baking or flower gardening, and I am never too far from a cup of coffee. I live in North Carolina with my husband and two children, who provide lots of scrapbooking inspiration.

This means that if you click on a link to their website and order something, I may receive a small commission. I’ve been ordering from them for years, and of course I only mention products I like.
