I was asked to make a sample for The Scrapbooking Studio in Bloomington using the My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found - Rosy collection. After looking at the colors I knew I wanted sepia pictures. Decided on an acrylic 6x12 album using thumbnail and wallet size sepia pictures. I really liked how it turned out. (Even if my adorable husband did not like being the subject of an entire project.)
Well, after officially retiring from working a year and a half ago, I thought I was done. My family needed me more, and I wanted to be there more for them. Well, I should have known that life has a way of changing when you least expect it. Last month I found out a new scrapbook store called The Scrapbooking Studio was going to be opening a second store. A new store was coming to my area. Woohoo!!
It turns out, I knew some of the ladies who were going to be working there. It also turns out, that the owner was looking for one more person to work a few evenings a week. This is where my retirement ended. My kids seemed to be doing well, and life seems a little more organized. I could do this!!
Working again!! Woohoo!! I have missed being creative, so it fit in perfect. We opened the doors for The Scrapbooking Studio here in Bloomington, IL on September 17th. People really seem to enjoy the store and we are having a blast.
Thank you Amy for coming to Bloomington!!
