Monday's Musings: Farewell Scrapstreet

Four years ago, I stumbled upon a very different and very fun website.  I found a call looking for new staff members to write for an online magazine, Magazine. must know that I once had dreams of being a writer.  An author.  I have often thought of writing for a scrapbooking magazine or other publication.  Maybe even a self help book.

Just like that, there was this call and I was excited.  Could I grab a spot on that team? This new scrapbooker who was just refining her style?  I remembering reading the scrap book, Find Your Groove right around the same time.  I was not in my groove back then.  But the girls saw something in me. 

I met the women who would serve as my mentor and, more importantly, my friend.  Dora is wildly creative and would dream up all these cool challenges and contests.  I dove into it all and fell in love with this hobby.

When I made the team, I knew I wanted to write about journaling.  I developed, wrote and edited over 50 articles about how to enhance journaling.  It is my passion in this hobby.  To me, a layout is a layout...until you put the story down.  Then it becomes a record, a treasure.

Through Scrapstreet, I have met many friends.  Some still in my life as acquaintances, some good friends I can't live without, some forever sisters no matter the distance time and life has provided.  Each summer, I get to make a trip and spend time with these girls.  I know it is the best thing to come from Scrapstreet.

I went looking for one thing...

yet walked away with so much more...I will miss you Scrapstreet!
