A blog about everything--etsy, kitties, and whatever else I feel like writing!

Now that I have learned so much from the Expo and seeing so many cool stamps, I am completely more addicted to stamps than I ever thought I could be! :)
This stamps are from the Memories and Beyond Store--that's another store that has beautiful papers and some stamps from all kinds of companies. I think I am getting into some of the artsy ones, now that I am learning better techniques for coloring. I'd like to start owning some Copic markers, but I am hesitating on taking that first step for some reason. I'll like the artsy stamps more if I had those markers, since they blend well!
PricklyPears was one of the other companies too that I saw at the Expo. I have some customers who are looking for items for Hanukkah, so I've been collecting a small stash of items for people who are of the Jewish faith! Star of David and the Menorah are the 2 I got from there!
I took a trip to visit my mom and stepdad about 6 years ago. I had lots of memorabilia from that trip and decided to make a scrapbook. I enjoyed making those first pages, and since then my style has changed so much. I never knew how much joy I get out of making things out of paper. It also is very relaxing for me when I am under stress.
I found the Etsy site through another website I frequent that is for scrapbookers.
I decided that, in addition to making my own albums, and gifts for friends and families that I could make some money doing it too, and that's how www.paperika.etsy.com was born!
