Busy Bee

Wow, who ever thought that a hobby could take up so much time, but wow, this whole YouTuber thing can be quite time consuming, though very fun!  I have been having so much fun creating my scrappy adventures and it is blowing my mind at how supportive the scrap community has been!  I seriously love all the new scrappy peeps that I've met through the online community.  It has really helped me gain more confidence in myself, and feel like I might be able to accomplish goals that I have set for myself!

In other news, is anyone else excited for National Scrapbooking Day coming up on May 7th?  With so many places having contests and crops and talks I'm not even sure where to begin, but I am definitely excited to get a chance to participate this year!!!

Well in the meantime here are a few of my favorite layouts that I've created in the past little while!

I'm a Youtuber!

Well I finally did it.  On Tuesday April 7th I went live!  This is something I had talked about doing but had never thought I would actually do.  I took one more step forward into the eternal realm that is my scrapping hobby and have started creating process videos.

What started out as a hobby for me and a way to record my family has grown into so much more and it's kind of surreal in a way.  I have become, lets face it, obsessed with this hobby, but it's not just that now for me.  It's become an art project for me.  A way to flex my creativity at the same time as I'm recording memories.  I have begun using my design and illustration background to create little pieces of art as I like to call them.  I know it might seem silly but I really would like to be even more present in this community of scrappers and I want to make an impact.  I have even thought about developing my own product line.  I know it's a long shot but I am hoping that I may eventually be able to use my love of this hobby as a way to branch into a career.

Anyway, I'm probably rambling by this point, so I'll just leave this layout here along with the link to my video so you can watch the process and listen to me ramble on incoherently for 15 minutes!
