A Group of My Own

In July of 2007 I opened my own scrapbooking group. I was unsure of how it would work exactly. BUT I had a few core principles that I was determined to stick to, this would make it a place for women to be friends and learn about scrapbooking.

At the beginning of my group I spent hours upon hours monitoring it and trying to make sure it was going in the direction I wanted it too.

Having the group was a great motivator for me to learn new things. Even if I had never tried something myself I would search out how to do it so I could teach others. Looking at all the new things encouraged me to try lots of things I never would have otherwise. I went from pages to cards to altering items and everything in between.

The group took of in ways I never would have imagined.
