That’s all they really do during the day. Seriously. (Side note: my dog thinks he’s a cat and she thinks he’s just a really big cat and they play and lounge around together all day. Odd but funny, no?)

I used to want to be exactly where I’m at right now. But that has changed. I want to be in the real world. Behind a real desk. Interacting with real people. And getting paid for it! :) Soon enough right?

Like the new look of this place? Check out all the new links and stuff that have been added. Need ideas for a cool color scheme check out this site! I pulled the current 5 color combo from the Tres Chic Simplicity design. He provides you with the HTML web color code for all. What-a-guy!And yeah, that’s my dog up there at the top of this page banner. He’s standing on my belly when I took this shot from the floor. :) What a beast!

A special shout-out to my new scrapping buddies (see sidebar). What *talent* I now live amongst! We got together last Friday to crop at Sherri’s and I proceeded to chat the ENTIRE time. Come on now people…you didn’t think I would just scrap when I COULD TALK WITH REAL LIVE PEOPLE? :D

And how cool is this…I’ve been tagged by a fellow…er…former fellow Las Vegan! ;) Thanks Lauren Bird!

What scrapbooking lines/products/etc do you DISlike?
DISLIKE? Errrr…Uhh…I dunno. How about baby and kid stuff, because I have none of those! :)

What is the hardest thing you’ve ever had to scrap?
Well, right now I am attempting to create a mini-album each for my mother and brandon’s mother. nothing too intensive–just stick a paper and a snapshot on the page and on to the next one–sort of album, but for the life of me, I just can’t do it! I keep trying to make it harder than it is…

What technique do you use more than any other?
How about 2? Right now, I tend to group things in the middle of my page leaving a somewhat blank sort of frame around the layout. And I love my foam stamps more than anything right now for titles and accents – if you call that a technique!

Ever been published?
yup – and my first layout ever pubbed was in the 1999 CK Idea Annual…7 years ago, WOW! I should post that layout for kicks on here sometime. :)

What’s the smallest scrap of paper you save?
those pesky KI tabs and squares seem to throw themselves with reckless abondon all over my room. i find them everywhere!

Ever have any scrapbooking-related injuries?
no, but my pages have…my cat (NOT the cute snouty-faced one shown above but THE OTHER one who belongs to Brandon) loves to lick and eat photos! I have to kick him out of my scrap room or else I will find little teeth marks on my layouts….

Give us your best storage or organizational idea.
I love my bowls on my desk that hold all my stamps. Right there in front of me, begging to be used. Digitally, I’m all about going through my computer files once and month and spring-cleaning out downloaded stuff, things I don’t use, etc. Keeps the computer running nicely!

You just won a week-long scrapbooking cruise for 4. Who’s going with you?
I’d sell it on ebay and use the cash for our honeymoon cruise! ;) Haha.

And if you, the reader, feel like doing this survey, go for it! :)

Hey Amber,
I stumbled aross your blog on Scrapability and recognized your name from freshman year at UNR. Check you out now, all grown up, engaged, and launching a scrapbook empire! Paul Mitchell would be proud(or not, since I suspect he vaguely disaproves of all pursuits not newspaper related)
Anyway, enjoy your time as an unemployed psuedo housewife. I’ve been exactly where you’re at(in Missouri, no less)and while you feel lonely and in desperate need of a paycheck, friends, and purpose, you’ll long for this time once your back in the advertising world.
I know. I’m writing this from a desk at an ad agency.
