Welcome to my blog!
I am a mother to 4 cute little kiddos- Who give me quite a lot of scrap fodder. I hadn't scrapped in 10 years when last fall for a Thanksgiving surprise- my hubby built me my very own space away from the kids- and told me I should start crafting- I think he actually said "you need a HOBBY!" I was a little shocked at first and would sit in my quiet chair and think.... what is EmmaLu getting into? Did Hubby feed the baby? Does Bubba ( my 13 yr old) have a ortho apt? It was stressful to give up some control over the kids like that. I couldnt create anything... So I would re- organize what little stuff I had found in storage. And cruze blogs! I must say I had a wonderful time learning all kinds of new things and what new products were out today! Ive had my little quiet spot for a little over a year, and have decided to start a blog, with help of some friends who will guest post, I hope to get craftier- make new friends, and have FUN! I came up with the name for my blog -you had me a scrap- because of the push I got from my husband to get back into crafting.
The first project I will show you is something my Emmalu made. She is 2 and this was her first piece. She had a great time. She arranged them by color and called them bird families. I said to her "boy that sure is beautiful. You are doing a great job." she responded. "awww, they are so cute! My little bird families!" So that is what we named her first masterpiece. "Bird Families." It is worthy of some blog time and possibly a frame too!
