I'm pretty sure I have a problem, maybe 2, okay a few






It's adhesive, I can't get enough of it, I seem to have the overwhelming need to try every kind there is and I am overflowing with refills, this is just what I keep within arms reach, you should see what's in my closet. I mean it's glue for criminy's sake, what the hell is wrong with me??






I really, really love Xyron. Which is one of the reasons I became and instructor with I Remember When... (they have a partnership with Xyron) I signed on with them about a year and a half ago as a hobbyist, really just to get a discout on scrapbooking products, and so I could horde more adhesive. If anything ever needs stuck to something else, I'm pretty sure I have the right glue. Anyway back to IRW, they are a relatively small direct sale company, comparable to CM or CTMH just not as big. They are still fairly inexpensive to become involved with and are not as strict as the other companies about using "only" their products which I really like and they have very low minimums. The idea is that you'll host crops, have people host parties, and vendor at different venues....and I guess I'm here babbling about it because they recently "split" us up into two groups Business Builders and hobbyists. I went ahead with the BB program, (it's really based on how much you order)...and have just not figured out where to go with it yet....my problem is that I'm not much of a salesperson, I always feel like I might be being pushy...I mean my gosh even here it's taken me this long to just spit it out...so there it is...if you are at all interested you can go to the website above to view the catalogs and contact me if you wish to place an order or would like any further info....there I don't know why that is so hard....


here is what was in the big box of goodies I got from them today








Thickers from American Crafts, Doodlebug paperfrills, sugarcoating (very fine glitter in yummy colors), sugarcoated chipboard letters, rubons and paper from Daisy D's, paper from WeRMemory Keepers, Fancy Pants Designs, and Creative Imaginations, Chipboard from scenic route and more, more, more...I'm so bummed I have to work tomorrow, but I hope to be able to dig into this stuff starting Friday, since I have a long weekend... and I think I am now officially on a scrapbook shopping diet until I go on my pre-retreat shopping spree for the crop weekend retreat I have coming up at the end of January...who am I kidding...this is why I can't be trusted with a credit card






This is my little scrappy buddy she likes to sit on my lap when I'm creating stuff...she also likes to climb all over Winnie when I'm trying to type so if I missed any typos, it's her fault...

good night and take care!!

LOL! My husband discovered that the envelopes for the Christmas cards that we had hoarded over the past two years (in Ghana) had sealed themselves in the high humidity. We successfully steamed them open, but then they wouldn't stick back closed. He was all upset..."how are we going to stick the envelopes closed????". I said, HAVE YOU SEEN HOW MUCH ADHESIVE I HAVE? I could stick the children together and mail them if I wanted to! I TOTALLY get you!

ATCs are fun to make, but I haven't actually been able to give any away yet. I'm too attached.

okay so I had to laugh at your adhesive addiction. I must admit I like to use different types but I dont have as much as you lol. But I so need to stock up lol.

I don't see anything wrong with your photo. :)
I remember when Lucas was about 5, he was needing some tape for a "master piece" but he asked me for some adhesive. So you know you are a obesessed scrapper when your children say adhesive instead of tape. :)
