Some of you may have been wondering why I have not been posting as much as I normally do. Some recent events have made it impossible to keep up with blogging recently. For starters, Blogger has made some changes and really made it difficult to publish a post. I know many people are having similar issues and I feel like my blog has been taken hostage.
I made the effort to create posts to be published while I was away and that didn't happen correctly either. I had to go in and manually release posts because the automation was not working properly. With that being said, my contractor called and said he would be able to come back and work on my house restoration. I have too many irons in the fire but that should work itself out soon so I will be back to blogging. Only if blogger will cooperate! Please stay tuned.

This post is a sticky and will remain at the top of the page for several weeks. Please scroll down to see the latest post! I have had a lot of people tell me that they want to get into scrapbooking but don't know where to start so I have devised a plan to get you started. My motive is to form a women's group that can share their lives with one another and come together for fellowship! Once you get the hang of it we hope you will be able to attend our monthly crop/craft night held at Pump Springs Church. This is free to anyone who wishes to come. We usually pitch in $5 and order pizza so we don't have to worry about dinner that night. You may also bring your own sandwich if you don't want pizza. It's just a great night to get together as women!Let me tell you a bit about what I have in mind and how this will work. We will be making this calendar over a period of several months to showcase different tools, materials and techniques used in scrapbooking. You will be taught by two different instructors who will show you many of the ins and outs of the scrapping world. Some of you are thinking that you can't make it to that many classes and that's alright. As long as you order a calendar for the first class, you can take all or some of the classes as your schedule allows. If you miss a class, you may obtain a kit and complete it later or come up with your own design. It's up to you!
