Hey Cara ,

Sorry I have been out of town this week for business. How long have you been scrapping?

Glad to see another Alaskan!

Terri

I've been scapping/card making for a couple of years now. Having a great time. How about everyone else.

I have been scrapping for a couple of years now. I also really like making cards. My oldest daughter may be moving out in a few months and then I get my own scraproom (which will hopefully help me not miss her so much). I think I will be a little more motivated then...I haven't been feeling like doing it lately. So much going on at work, the weather...ya' know what I mean?

I have been scrapping since 1997 when I ran into Ben Franklin store in Juneau and saw what some lady had done with her photos and I was hooked.

I agree with Cara. I have been out of town for work and trying to catch up at home. (No kids so I have to do it myself! LOL!) Boy, it has sure melted in the last week. I have a dry driveway! (but three feet of snow in the backyard.) I haven't scrapped in two weeks and I think I'm going through withdraws. I try to do something every day but .....

Have a great day!

Terri

You normally do something every day??? Wow...I am impressed. I am happy if I do something every weekend...which I haven't for a while. I made a ton of Christmas cards and I think it burned me out for a bit. But I am feeling the urge to get scrappy! I am getting ready to reorganize all my ribbon. (I found a new way to try.) Sometimes I think I like scrapbooking because of all the stuff I get to organize.

I wish I could be more organized. I try so hard, then I can't find anything.

There was a topic in the General Forum about ribbon organization. One the of replies included this http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/20 08... link. A couple of the replies talked about using old-fashioned clothes pins to hold your ribbon. The pins are then stored in jars. The link is to a blog that shows this storage method (among other things). I currently have that Ez Pull Ribbon thingy but I don't really like it now that I have had it for a while. I love the way the ribbon looked in that blog so I thought I would give it a try. I thought if I get my new craft room the jars would look pretty. I LOVE organizing things. I wish that were my job. Happy Easter!!

Ok...just finished the ribbon project. I am embarrassed to say that I bought 150 clothespins and I used them all!!! I am going to have to invest in some more. I haven't put them in jars because I don't have my craft room yet. (It looks like that may take a while longer to happen.) Right now I have a small corner of my bedroom that I use for scrapbooking. I love the way the ribbon looks...haven't taken any pictures yet but they are adorable and I believe it will be easier to transport ribbon when I go to a friends house to scrapbook. Hope you have a great weekend! Enjoy the sunshine!

That's great. I can't wait to see pictures. This is something I might try when I decide to get organized. I have half a room for my area, but it's small and cramped. Wouldn't be wonderful to have my own space. One can dream.

Hey Anchorage,

It has been so long since someone was on. Sorry I haven't checked in a while. Welcome Butterfly!

I am having a problem getting back to scrapbooking now that we (in Anchorage) have no SB store. I have to go on the internet and order stuff and then, wait for it to arrive. Also I miss talking to other scrappers and tossing ideas around. Anyone know if there are groups getting together in town?

Terri

Hi ladies,

Terri, I too miss MTAM. I didn't go to many crops there because it seemed I never had money when one came up, haha. I don't know of any other groups that get together and crop though. I think Michaels and JoAnns has crops sometimes, but I've never been to one. I always liked the atmosphere at MTAM better. Maybe Tanya and the other ladies from MTAM still get together and crop on occasion. I would suggest e-mailing her through the MTAM site and ask if she has any information on groups.

Hey Erin,

It has been a long time. Thanks for the information. I never went to the crops at MTAM because I work on Saturdays. Too tired!

It is too bad we can't find a group. My friend in California is in a group. They meet "when ever the creative juices need to flow." (About once a month). They have so much fun and are very close. They teach each other new techiniques or new products they found.

Have a great day!

Hey Anchorage Scrappers,

The weather has turned cold and snowy. What SB projects are you working on?

I am 2/3 done with my Fiji album. Only 3 cruises and 4 other vacations to do until I'm caught up! LOL!

Have a great weekend.

Terri

Hi Ladies!!

I just happened to stumble across this Forum and I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Melissa...we've been stationed at Elmendorf for about 8 months now...so I'm pretty new to Alaska. I'm so disappointed that there's no Scrap store in Anchorage, I love going to crops. If any of you know of any crops please let me know.

Hi Melissa - my husband and I live in Florida but will be flying into Elmendorf around the 22nd of Seattle, possibly a few days later becuase we have to catch hops and will be staying on base for a couple days.

We will be getting together with Terri (AKteddybear) and some other scrapbook friends.
