About Me

My photo
Hello! My name is Jennifer Beard, I am a wife & SAHM of two gorgeous kids! I love any form of crafting, I started very young, I really cant remember a time when I wasnt making things with my hands. My grandmother taught me to sew as a child, my mom made home decor, my great grandmother quilted and made ceramics...I've done all of that myself, and a little over two years ago I discovered scrapbooking! I love to create beautiful little works of art! I love to paper piece little things and put them on pages to sortve tell a story. I'm in love with making tear bears, I think they're so cute! I'd have to say that my favorite thing to create would be scrapbook albums, mostly vintage themes. I love taking "old" items and giving them new life!

It's been awhile...

Hello, everyone! It's been so long since I've posted on my blog, April 21, 2010 to be exact...alot has happened since then. In my home life, we FINALLY got our living room remodeled! It's taken a long time. Years, actually. We started out trying to do it ourselves, to save money, that proved to be a disaster. So we hired a guy to help us, he was slow, and we had to sometimes throw a fit to get him here, but he's cheap, and its done, so no worries. I am thrilled to have new carpet, tile and walls in here! Finally it doesnt look like the 70's in my living room, NO more panelling! Yippee!!

As for my world in scrapbooking, alot has changed there too. I left the design team that I'd been with for several years, and then later joined another one, I wont say which one, most of you know already anyway, let's just say that things "didnt work out", and leave it at that. I did join Treasure Box Designs DT about a month ago, I REALLY enjoy using Dina's patterns! They're so fun! I'm still in the Make Scrapbooks Not Dinner DT on ebay (MSND), of course I've been with those girls for years too. I have been creating quite alot lately tho. We will see if maybe I can get some photos on here without them being sideways! I'll try. I've been doing alot of premade pages and selling them on ebay, although ebay has been just a tad slow the last few weeks, for me anyway. I am currently working on a Zoo themed chipboard album, I'm not getting very far with it, as I seem to have lost my "mojo" a little bit. This happens to me alot, when I work steadily for a few weeks, then I need time off. DH and I are discussing a zoo trip to Oklahoma City on Saturday, so maybe a trip to an actual zoo will help my mojo come back...

I hope to be blogging a bit more in the future, I seem to always say this, and only come back every few months LOL...let's hope I can stick to this. I'd like to start playing with blogs and doing some scrapbooking blog challenges sometime soon, if anyone can reccomend any please leave me a comment! I've got one place in mind already...but since I dont blog often, and do the "blog hopping" I dont really know what is out there and who is doing what.
