I’ve wanted a scrapbook blog

For ever. I figured it was high time to start. I wedding blogged for a while when I was wedding planning, and that was great, but after the wedding I moved on. I tried the DIY House blog, but we’re on a budget and even though my list of house projects is as long as my arm, I didn’t have the money to do/complete enough posts for a full blog.

But what I do have time for? Scrapbooking and paper crafting! And If I don’t have time for it, I’ll make it! I’ve been reading scrapbook blogs like crazy lately (thank you, pinterest), and really wanted to join the party. There’s so much inspiration, and I wanted to be part of that (and I only have one friend that really scraps, so I needed to talk about it with someone. Enter: internet).

So, who is Maddie?

Well, I’m a 26 year old living in Chicago-land, with Pancakes, the world’s cutest dog, and my husband Tab. Scrapbooking has take over my life and my basement. It’s become my favorite hobby (provided you don’t count my closet obsession with celebrities and pop culture). I also love to bake and do projects around the house. I’m a graphic designer by day, and my design obsession tends to bleed into every other area of my life. Oh, and I’m loud and obnoxious. But like Lady Gaga, I was born this way.DSCN0126
