The Yourstory binding kit.

I have just received the Yourstory Binding system.  I am not really sure how much I will use it, but the possibilities seem endless.  Books for my grandson, memories that I can pass down.  It took me a while to committ because I was thinking how much the replacements pieces were.  Then I find out is is just glue you can use from a glue gun and a number of things you can make your own covers from, so I was sold.  Especially the deals,  I got mine free with the purchase of a Cricut cartridge of 39.99 at

Let me know if you have one and what our thoughts are.

Are our social hobbies segregated?

I have often wondered why those who share our hobbies (I like scrapbooking, stamping and card making and my husband likes Flyfishing and Bow hunting) don't look like us.  Is it our location Washington State, or is it something else?

Maybe what we are exposed to?  We have always wondered about this but most recently It really struct me when a friend found a website and forwarded to me.  SOC  Scraps of Color.  This is a page where the majority of the members are women of color.  This was an amazing find for me.  You may wonder why?  Is it all about race, those of you who know me know better.  It is not it is about culture, our body shapes, skin tones, and our lifestyle,  To have stamps or graphics that show people who look like you and your family is nice.  it is nice to see yourself in your work.

But it still brings me back to why are our hobbies not more intergrated between races?

What do you think?

Is Good, So I am going to try something new...  Blogging.  Although I am not sure what i will blog about, it may be the new crafting project I just finished, it may be about the polictics of the day or a story to warm your heart.

I hope at some point I say something to inspire you, to make a difference maybe in the world or maybe just in someone's heart.    It can be something small or something big. 

Mostly I just want to make a difference, share a smile and hopefully share some of the wisdom that comes with age.

From this first day I thank you,  Be blessed
