I thought I'd take a minute and answer just three questions. These are the questions I am asked 99% of the time I'm working on a project or scrapping with my friends.
Q: Where do I get my inspiration?
A: Everywhere. I view my life, my family, my friends, my experiences, my feelings, my thoughts, and my surroundings through my scrapbook lenses.
I soak in everything (I have a steel trap that way). I read blogs. I follow designers and companies, and I subscribe to the major scrapbooks mags. I print ads, photos, and tear out things I see in print. They all get tossed into an Inspiration file. With pinterest, anything I love on the internet gets "pinned". (If you want to get started, leave me a comment below, and I'll send you an invite.)
Q: What are my favorite scrapbook internet sites?
A: I love several:
Q: Where did I get that? Or this?
A: I don't remember (exactly). I shop at the big two in my town: Michaels and Hobby Lobby. There are coupons in our newspaper every Sunday. I vowed (with my hand over my heart and with my three fingers held up) a long time ago to never waste a 40% off coupon. Just won't do it. We also have an Archivers store here in Westminster. I like that store as well, but I always use a coupon there too. Scrapbook supplies are plentiful and costly. I like a deal.
In addition to "touch and feel" stores (and when I want to shop at odd hours), here are my top three go-to internet shopping sites (make sure to look on the site for coupons and discounted shipping offers):
2. Let's Scrap
3. Two Peas
There you have it! If you want to know something else about me, just ask.
