I'm just curious how many Oregon scrappers we have out there. How long have you been scrapping and how did you get started?

I stated about 6 years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter. It took no time at all for me to be addicted to it.

Thanks for sharing!

Lynn

I wished I was in Vancouver, Wa. , then I'd be home. We're in Vegas now because of my husbands job and every once in awhile i check out this site, it's as close to home as I can get right now.

How's the weather? Please send rain to me and I'll try and send some sunshine.

Hello everyone - I'm in Gresham and have been scrapping for about 3 years but only seriously for about 2 months. I still want to learn so much but I look at other's galleries and I don't know if I will ever learn everything. I don't even know what a cricut is. I'm sure there is hope for me!! Have a wonderful day

Hi all! I'm in Beaverton, and I've been scrapping for over 10 years. I can't keep track of all the trends, though, so I usually just play by my own rules. I'm a newbie to this site...any tips where I should start exploring?

Another Oregonian here!

I was starting to think everyone was from Marion County, until I got down to the end of the thread...

Colleen... wasn't aware Putnam was there 5000 years ago! LOL

I crop with some friends usually. A friend of mine got me started scrapping. I call her a pusher!
My husband jokes that she'll give you your first taste for free, but before you know it, you're on the street trying to score some colored paper and buttons! LOL

Hi I just thought I'd come in and say hello. I too hail from Oregon, Silverton to be exact. But I live in Australia now. Feeling very homesick at the moment as Christmas tends to do that to me. I still can't get my head around it being the middle of summer and christmas time.

Oh that would be very difficult! How often do you get to come back to Oregon?

I found a place here that sells real trees so might give that a go this year, although not looking forward to the 150 price tag. And they are fir trees and I like the spruce, but beggers can't be.....At least I might get the smell of pine without it coming from a candle.

Took a bit to find this forum but I did. From Central Point OR (a few seconds from Medford). I just have to say I'M GOIN TO PORTLAND SOON!! No not moving BUT going to the scrapbook convention with a good friend. She has never been so it will be so much fun. I'm taking about 7 classes so I am saving every bit of money to have fun both at the convention and anywhere we can go to have fun. Not worry about hubby's and kids!! Can't wait!!

I was thinking the same thing. I was browsing this forum today and thought, "where is Oregon?" Found this thread, and realized I had responded to it like a year ago.

I'm resurfacing after a long time away. I have been scrapping for more than 20 years. Currently I do mostly digital scrapping and educational stuff as I homeschool my boys.
I do host a monthly crop North of Salem at our church. I am a Creative Memories Consultant on a personal level mostly. I have spent the last year and a half salvaging my marriage and trying to keep out of the depression pit. We have more good days now and take it one day at a time.

Had to say hi to some Oregonians! I lived in Salem for nearly 30 years and am in Redding now. I travel up I-5 pretty regularly to see my BFF in Salem and I hit all the stores I can on the way up! --Karen

Hi, everyone. I had to do a search to find Oregon! So I'm new here, and I am in Klamath Falls. There's someone else who posted a while ago also from KF, so I don't feel quite so alone with everyone living on the I-5 corridor.

I'm going to start the SDU classes at my LSS, hopefully I'll learn enough to give me some confidence to really start working on my LOs. I have great ideas but no clue how to get them onto paper!

hi all.. i live in Milwaukie, Or, I have been scrapbooking since 95, my style is pretty plain, i believe the true art is still the photo(s). I try and broaden my horizons, or even teach them when it is called for.. add me as a friend, I also have a blog where i show examples, and soon videos, if you are a beginner, drop me a note.. we were once all newbies to this wonderful craft, some take it to a whole new level, and others like to keep their stuff their own way...

Hi, I was just reading through the forum and saw yours...West of Salem about an hour??? I live just south of Lincoln City. I grew up in Dallas, OR but lived in MT for 14+ years.

Where are you located? If you're interested in chatting, let me know! I've scrapped for about 6 years..but make a lot of cards. I've got tons of LOs to make but can't find time..a common problem!!

I'm Sorry! never good news to hear! But at least we still can shop on the internet...that helps some but there is no place to sit and work! I have found that onliine crops are pretty good and you can work at home and visit online at the same time with other scrappers!
