Welcome One and All

Welcome to our Blog! This is going to be so much fun! This blog is not limited to just one type of craft. While our favorite is scrapbooking (layouts and cards), we venture into altering items, painting, decopage art, and much much more. We're always up for trying something new and for making our mark on the world. Hope you enjoy our projects and are able to draw lots of inspiration and make your own mark!

Our First Blog Award!!!

First off I want to thank Kathy at http://kathyskraftsandmore.blogspot.com/ for bestowing this award on me. I do so appreciate it. Kori and I have just recently joined the BLOG scene together and I am soooooo honored to have made such an impression so quickly.  Thanks!

To accept this award We have to 
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded us
2. Share 8 things about myself
3. Pay it forward to 8 bloggers we recently found
4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about their award
Since this blog is ran by two people I feel its only fair that we each pick 4 blogs to honor and to share 8 things about each of us.  I will be picking my blogs and posting them later this evening!

day of scrapbooking and crafting even tho I really need to do them.
Sorry, this just seems to be much more important at the moment.
