What is it you love most about scrapbooking?
Creating something that will last for generations to come and knowing that my scrapbooks will be passed down for other and enjoyed.
When did you first get into scrapbooking?
When my daughter was about 2. So about 10 years ago.
But I have been doing crafts since I was about 7.
Do you have any tips for people who'd like to start scrapbooking?
The best tip I have is to pick one event and start with that. Birthdays are the easiest and have many items on the market to create with. Books with scrapbook sketches or templates are also a wonderful way to start. They give you your basic layout and all you do is add the pictures, papers and embellishments as you like.
Do you have any other creative hobbies?
I love creating digital items as well in photoshop. Bookmarks, gift tags and scrapbook embellishments. They are so much fun to create and use in your scrapbook layouts.
What's your fondest crafting memory?
When my grandma would teach me to sew. She had a room all set up and we would make all sorts of fun items on her sewing machine. It was always so much fun to go to grandmas and sew something special with her help.

Gotta love totes, right?

Next up, I had to buy my mom some birthday gifts and unsurprisingly found something at the Body Shop. The lovely lady gave me all sorts of discounts and things and I could even pick out one of their new lip balms. Though the rest of the flavors seemed really nice too, I chose the one with mint. Mint could, of course, be either boring or overwhelming, but it wasn't. It's just perfect!

"A ballerina, magician's assistant, black belt, and former model
finds true love. A sweet little baby falls from the stars. A tale of
gypsies, dinosaurs, and high seas adventure. A chronicle of everything
we do, everywhere we go, and all the days we felt alive."
My dear friend Lily has temporarily reopened her gorgeous shop. Be sure to get your hands on her beautiful jewelry before it's too late!
"Hi I'm Samantha from Reinvented In Seattle. It's a haven for this highly caffeinated Seattlite to ramble on travel, food, books, and the pretty things I make with my sewing machine. If you like coffee and seeing the world through rose colored glasses I would love for you to stop by and say hi."
