OMG Paris Hilton!!!

Really does Paris Hilton scrapbook? I don't think so, but she does have a new line of scrapbooking items. Here is the article as if it wasn't bad enough that she is getting paid to party now she is getting paid to put here name on the latest line of scrapbooking supplies targeted at teen scrapbooking girls.

As if the Scrapbooking industry isn't hurting enough she has to become a part of it. I am not sure if that is a bad thing or a good thing. I guess since Martha jumped on the scrapbooking ban wagon why not P. Hilton. I just hope that her line is going to be quality. It might actually be since she is not designing it herself, she just has approval.
So, anyway I am glad that Paris has a HOT new line of scrapbooking goodies coming out from Wooky Entertainment. We need to grab up the young new scrappers early so when they get older they will bring in their kids and the future scrapbookers will be born and if it takes a little PH then why not, maybe she is trying to clean up her act a little bit. It is suppose to be her style "glamorous" flashy while targeting the newest scrapbookers.
She lauched her new line on Sunday at the CHA (Crafter & Hobby Association) convention in Anaheim, California. Sounds like fun!! Anyway, good luck to her and all fresh newby scrapbookers!!

Sign of the Times even the Scrap industry isn't safe

I myself am not a fan of this magazine, but many people are (apparently not enough) Simple Scrapbooking will be off the shelf forever. I like to read there web page and there blogs but other than that I am not a fan of the magazine. Here is the official announcement.

I am not a super fan of this due to the fact that a lot of there layouts are for one picture and every time it all about kids. Now, don't get me wrong kids are fine but gimme a break, page after page layouts with one picture of kids. Can't they come up with another idea. Yeah, yeah they are going to fold it into the back of Creating Keepsakes (not really fan of that one either) which is nice for those who like to read it. Now, don't get me wrong I will buy the CK magazine and read it, tear out what I like or not and send it along to a friend and they pass it along until there is nothing left. I have noticed though my scrapbook friends and I all seem to have the same taste, there is always duplicate copies of Scrapbooking ETC, I think it is because they give you a layout idea page for all of the layouts in the mag. Which I LOVE!!! Anyway, my thoughts on this sad little tid bit of scrapbooking!!

Happy New Year!!!

Yes, yes, I know it is January 14th we are 14 days into the new year, but I feel that it is ok to wish everyone a happy new year if I haven't seen or talked to them since the beginning of the year. New Year, New Start!
Ok, so it has been a while since I have blogged. I think that is mostly due to the fact that I didn't know what to blog about. I haven't been motivated to scrap or talk about it.

Anyway, I digress. So, i have about 100 scrapbooking magazines that I have read and I don't want to through them away (really just recycle them) so I have come up with the best idea and I have expanded it to include all the magazines that I read. Which are mostly home improvement, organization type magazines. I am building an Idea Book, what this is, is I cut, rip, clip and keep everything that I like or find usefull in magazines, put them in a artist painting pad note book with blank unlined pages (you can buy them at Micheals or Joannes). I decorate the pages with left over or scrap peices. This has solved many issues, I am not over run by magazines, I have a place to use the scraps from scrapbooking, and I have a place to practice new technquies for scrapbooking or new products without worring about messing up a scrapbook page.
