Welcome!


YES! You are the right page! I just have a new name! :) After realizing that I do more than just scrapbooking, I've decided to change the name and will be changing the look.. I'd do a whole new blog but I'd hate to have to start all over.
Here you will find scrapbooking ideas. There's a ton of older posts that used the Cricut, but lately I haven't been using it much and well, my sewing machine is gaining more miles by the day.

Another Generous Gift!

There was another generous gift this morning, and I am proud to say that cut files are covered for the next SIX MONTHS!

Thank you so much to the Generous donors - you both are greatly appreciated!!


On a more personal note - I'm taking it one day at a time. I will be looking at apartments this week, as I stoped by a rental office yesterday to see what was available, and there are 2 that will be ready next week. I may bump up my move from August 22ndish to the weekend of the 11th, depending on how things go, and if my parents can up down that weekend. My most wonderful baby brother (OK, he's 22) has offered to send me the money for deposit and first months rent, so this can all be possible.

I am going through things right now, trying to see what I really don't need and what I can sell to get a few things - I don't have a bed (gonna buy an air mattress at work to start out with) and the only "real" furniture I own is the pieces in my craft room. So, Desk, 3 big cabinets (full of scrap stuff) a 5 shelf bookcase, and my curio cabinets that hold my snow globes. I guess I'll be checking out Craig's list for a kitchen table and chairs (anyone have any expierence with this?) and my parents are gonna bring down a TV. It's hard to believe how much stuff I don't have, but I have never lived alone, and well, I think that this is something that I need to do, and well, things WILL get better.

Thank you to all those that are saying prayers - I believe that this will make me stronge enough to do this - I have a plan, and just need all the mental support that I can to continue to go through with it all!

Hi Amanda,

I just wanted to stop by and say I'm so touched by the two generous people that have kept your site up. I don't know why this made me so teary.. But thank you to both of the donors..

Wishing you abundant blessings,

That is awesome that your bro is helping you out! Don't forget to check out your local Freecycle. Sometimes ppl have decent stuff (for free). It will at least get you covered until later.

With papercrafting family and biological family behind you, you'll be just fine! Thanks so much to those who have donated to keep Amanda going! I've not downloaded anything, but get your blog through reader, and I know this is a tough time for your. Believe this...one of the best experiences a woman can have is to learn that they can survive on their own. It is empowering, a confidence builder, and is an experience that will serve you well in the future. Though I'm sure it doesn't seem so now, there WILL come a day that you will be glad for this and proud and content with yourself. Hang tough, girl. It will all work out for the best! You're in my prayers. You CAN do this.

I'm sorry to hear that you are going through a rough time. You have your family behind you and your friends in the crafting world that will keep you going. I'm happy to hear that your brother is helping you with the first and last rent. It is awesome to live alone. YOu will learn about yourself. Keep your head up and be strong. :-)
