updated with winner PAPER TRADERS first ever blog hop

PICKED........JESSI FOGAN yeah !!
Jessi please email me at

Welcome to the first ever Paper Traders Blog Hop Each of my sister hoppers will be offering a piece of their original artwork, little something to be drawn randomly from all who comment on their posts.
This is what I will be sending to my  winner.
It is just a simple note book with an altered front and back.
So please leave a comment with a way to contact you should you be my winner.

A bit about me personally:
 I started this blog  so I could share some of my work and apply to be on design teams. I have represented many  fun creative sites. I am currently on two teams, check the sidebar links for teams I am on.  When I first started making scrapbook pages {over 13 years now}
I started with a very large hat box.

I was confident that  it would be large enough to hold everything I would ever need. My first page took me 4 days to complete. {I was just winging it based on a magazine my friend 'Joanne'  had given me} I almost didn't get hooked.
 I  was working on a small desk area in the kitchen.
 I did some more research and the hat box grew to a room.
And then on to a larger room
My family was glad when I took the room,
so they could sit and eat at the table again.
Some of you are new visitors so, thanks for the visit. I joined Paper Traders as a way to grow personally and artistically. I love that there is no pressure to use a 'marketed product' or all the newest things. Like many of you I have a lot of supplies and just want to make something with them. I love to play with paper and stretch my imagination and try new things. This group helps me do that. We TRADE PAPERS  it is so much fun to see what other people are making and to have a chance to share my work and get a little piece of theirs. For more peeps at what I do, click the

The Blog Hop will be open the entire weekend of 
April 19-21, 2013.

Laughing at the image of your kitchen table, Pam. My dining room table was covered in art materials for far too long. You know I am a big fan of your work.

Jessi Fogan said...

One day I'll get my stuff out of the 'tornado room', as we call it. Also known as 'crap corner'. Eating at the table is over-rated ;) Love the inky blend on that journal - and especially that wonderful quote!

Glenda said...

Love the journal Pam. I think most of us probably started on the kitchen table, much to hubbys disgust, Am now iff to look at your studio link.

What a nice blog, and a lovely gift journal! I did a similar technique as your SHE girls just recently, except I began digitally with a picture from a vintage sewing pattern and filled pieces with digital papers. So neat to see how you made yours! Lovely blog!
