Creative Team

I've struggled with advertising ever since I became a designer and finally decided I have to do something about it. So I decided the first thing is to gather a creative team who will post layouts made from my kits at TSG as well as other sites. I will also want them to make stickits occasionally to use as bonuses, freebies, as well as to use in my ads.

So I'm really pleased that Tina Bentley (aka teenybop61) has agreed to become my first team member! Tina and I have worked together before so I know this will be a great working realtionship! Here is Tina's bio so you can all get to know here;

Bio:My name is Tina Bentley aka teenybop61. I began hybrid scrapbooking about 6 years ago. I have even taught classes in our youth groups and at senior camp (senior citizens that is). I began digi scrapping about 2 years ago and I am hooked. I love taking photos with my digital camera and I love the computer so this is a perfect hobby for me. I have learned alot at scrapping garden which is my absolute favorite site. I also hang out at a few other places. I am a gallery moderator at scrappinggarden last year and became a CT for Linda Cumberland and Lise Lotte Sunesen. I look forward to being a CT for Pat Hall. I have one daughter who turns 21 this year and my husband and I have been married 22 1/2 years. I belong to the Salvation Army as does most of my family. I love crafts of all kinds, except knitting, I love to read and sing.

I will be posting some of Tina's work here on the blog, so be looking for it!

I have put out a CT call to hopefully find a couple more team members. If you're interested please leave a comment here with your contact info, or , if you prefer, email me at scrappingdax at

Happy Belated New Year!

Hi guys,
It's been a while since I've gotten to post here. My Mom fell on Dec. 13th and broke her hip, had surgery and is now in rehab. She's doing really well and is now walking with a walker and really getting around! Did I tell you she's 92? She'll be 93 in March and until she fell she walked every day which I'm sure has helped in her recovery. The problem is, she has Alzheimer's, and will probably end up in an assisted-living facility. The only other option we've been given is to bring her home with 24/7 skilled-nursing care. She has absolutely no awareness of safety issues, and will be in constant danger of falling again. She's very independent and doesn't realize that anything's wrong with her, so she thinks she can do anything she could do 30 years ago.

So wish me luck - we are looking into facilities right now, and there are 4 of us children, and we all have our own preference! My sister is a retired nurse and I will probably go along with what she wants to do, which will be 2 votes to 1 and 1, lol! But truly, my brothers will come around.

I hope to be able to post more regularly since things have settled down some with her being in rehab and doing good. I will post again tonight or tomorrow. I have some new products in my store that I'll show you and I have some exciting news also!
