I'm back . . . but not quite

I am so excited that my addiction to scrapbooking is back, otherwise, my scrap materials will just be a junkie . I have to say, though, that I need to update my stash. To give satisfaction to my remission, I scrapped the first available pictures. I have done a few LOs after so much effort because I seemed to have forgotten the basics. Hopefully, soon I will learn the art of doing it again.

The Reason for Abandoning and Embracing Back the Craft

Pregnancy women have their own distinct pet peeves during the first few months of pregnancy. They vary from food to perfume which particulary affect their senses of taste and smell. I would never imagined that mine would be as weird as hating something which I was so insanely crazy about. Yes, during my entire pregnancy I loathed scrapping. I didn't even get myself to look at my scrapbook materials. Was it because I was carrying a boy, thus, my girly artistic sense escaped me for awhile?  But when he came out, with a face I believe not only his own Mom would love, my scrapbooking mojos came rushing back.  How else would I capture such joy but to preserve them in a scrapbook with memories to last even beyond my lifetime.
