As Alecia Scraps Etsy Shop News

I've been tinkering around with some fun stuff for my Etsy shop. I'm finally gonna start listing things for sale to see how it goes. I had lots of fun making these hand-sewn felt flower embellishments which would be oh so perfect for scrapbooking, card-making, altered art and more.

Just wanted to share a couple of pics of the flower sets I've made. There are 5 sets so far in my shop. I'm thinking of adding some of my handmade cards too... we'll see how it goes.

Thanks for looking!!

A Recent Kitty Page :o)

It's been crazy, busy in my life lately, so not much scrapping in the past week. I haven't really been feeling the mojo either, and I HATE that!! Isn't that the worst feeling?? I have a 3-day weekend and lots of fun, new scrappy goodies though, so I plan on changing that!!

Wanted to share a page I had done recently. Pic is of my baby boy Chance. He's such a HOOT!! If there is a box, bag, really ANY kind of container in his site, he will "try" to get in it, hehe!!

Until next time... Eat, Sleep, SCRAP!!!

SYTYCD ~ Fave Dance of the Week

So, how many of you know what "Krumping" is? For those of you who don't know... according to the Urban Dictionary, it is a style of dancing consisting of various chest pops, stomps, and arm swings. It is used to express one's feelings towards another through dance rather than violence.

My FAVE dance this week was Kherington And Twitch's Krump routine... definitely AWESOME, but it looks exhausting!! And DANG, white girl can dance, hehe! Enjoy!!!
