Getting Crafty

So I came across a few sites talking about Smash*Books and I had to dig around some more to find out what it was all about. Basically the are no pressure scrapbooks that come with page backgrounds already so you just smash your stuff into them. This is great if your a random memorabilia collector like me. I think I have all my movie ticket stubs saved from the past 3 years lol. This video explains more about them:


After seeing this I knew I just had to go buy this stuff! So I went on Amazon and ordered this stuff in my first haul

Then, I found a bunch of stuff on etsy from the paperissues shop

Next I found a bunch of stuff at Joann’s online

My first trip into Michael’s I only got a few things

But, my last Trip to Michael’s was a giant score because I got my daughter her own Smash*Book and special embellishments for her Karate & her Washington D.C. Trip

So now my pink book is all about me, yellow is for my trips, and the black is for things I’ve done. Slowly I am working on them all at the same time because I just can’t help myself.

I am a widow, mom, and college graduate in her mid-thirties looking for a simpler life since my nest has become empty. I love reading smutty romance novels on my Kindle, have a Netflix & Hulu addiction and am a self-confessed cat lady.
