Introducing Color Pour


I have always been intrigued by the paint pour trend. I have loved the idea and the look, but the thought of mixing a bunch of chemicals together and the mess of mixing paints frightened me. So, when American Crafts asked if I would like to try their new Color Pour collection, now in Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, - with NO mixing involved, I was excited to say the least!

What is the Definition of Scrapbooking?

It was two weeks ago that my son turned 11. I made sure his baby album was pulled off the shelf and on display. My family enjoyed looking at the photos, especially the children. However, it wasn't until my mother-in-law looked at the album and said something out loud. What she said had been giving me mom-guilt for some time now...
