Welcome to my place

Welcome to my first blog!

I decided it was time to join my bloggin' friends and all of the amazing talented artists, educators and DT members that inspire me everyday!

A place where I can share my thoughts, my life and my love of Scrapbooking and Mixed Media art.

Here's a little about me:

I am Shannon, daughter, friend and single mom of 2 amazing children, Makenzi 13 and Cameron 9.

I started scrapbooking when I found out I was pregnant with Kenzi. You know the pages, the ones where we cut up every picture into ovals and squares, used fancy cutting scissors and loads of stickers.

Well I (we) sure have come along way since the year 2000. So many fabulous companies supplying us with our addiction to paper and embellishments. What would we do with out them..

I stopped scrappin' in 2005 after moving and I had no desire or gumption to do anything.

Thankfully I was inspired again in January of this year (2014) when I received a mixed media canvas from my friend and fellow artist Melanni Partridge. It was just what my inner artist needed to get me going again.

New beginnings so to speak meant my space needed an overhaul. All of my crafting stuff had been packed away for 5+ years so I painted my studio/craft room, bought new shelving and a desk/workspace and I was off on the mixed media journey that I absolutely fell in love with.

I don't think I will ever be the same because of that canvas. And for that I thank my friend Melanni. :)

Here's the canvas

and here's a few pic of my craft space.
Duty calls back to work...
