Scrap Happy Too!

Please check out the new addition to my blog collection. It's on my Blog List entitled: Scrap Happy Too!

I have started a new side business and I am so excited about the company. My day job is implementing a new system and they are talking about less and less overtime. So I needed something to supplement my income. After looking for the past 6 months for a company I can work for on my schedule, I found Stampin' Up. Stampin' Up is a great way for me to use my Toastmaster skills as a teacher and leader. I am proud to say that their products are made in America and their paper is 75% post consumer recycled. I can sell the paper crafts that I make but I can also sell the products that we will use in our Workshops, Open Houses, Home Parties, and monthly Club meetings. I hear so many times that my friends have years worth of photos, love to scrapbook, but either don't have the time to do it or don't know where or how to start. I will teach wonderful new techniques and create a fun environment to showcase our talents. Even if you simply want to learn new ways to use the paper craft tools you already own, the new skills I will present will add a whole new level to your hobby!

The other point for this coming holiday season is that with the economy being so chaotic I feel that we will be more apt to make than buy gifts for our families. I will host a workshop prior to the holidays in order for us to make unique and beautiful gifts the ones we love.

See you at our next workshop!


  1. Sounds great. I am looking forward to our session at Three Falls Cove.

  2. Are you allowed to sell products, etc. from a booth? If so, and you want to display a few items, let me know. There is a new business here (similar to KK's craft mall, but much smaller) and I rented 4 small "cubbies". Laurie will be displaying her books, and I got the extras in case you wanted to sell some of your handmade knitted things or anything else.
    I am planning to display the Americana items that did not sell in Hester's garage sale, so hopefully she will still be able to get a little money from them.

    Anyway, let me know if you want to use the cubby.

    I know you will have a blast doing the scrapbooking business. Do you have a website? I will look at it after Shabbat if so.
