One of the best things about living in Prescott is that compared to Pinetop, where I grew up, there are SOO many more shopping options! Not that I go shopping all that often (I’m a college kid, remember?), but it’s still nice to have options. For example: in Pinetop, the only place that anybody went for anything was our Supercenter Wal-Mart. Don’t get me wrong, I love Walmart, but it’s kinda sad when it’s the hot spot for dates. Here, there’s a mall (gasp), Target (yes!) and, my new favorite local store, Scrap-book-ish! <3
Scrap-book-ish is a little store on Willow Creek Road that has everything you need to put together a creative journal called a scrapbook. At home, scrapbooking was one of my favorite hobbies. My mom, sister and I would gather around the table with pictures and colored papers and stickers and just create! It’s one of my favorite memories that I have with my mom and sister. When I went to college, I didn’t want to clutter up my already small room with paper and scissors and hole punches, so I left it all behind. However, I got back into it just a few days ago because next Tuesday in my speech class we’re giving a demonstrative speech, and I figured that I would show how to make a scrapbook page! I went to the Scrap-book-ish store hoping to find supplies, and find supplies I did! (also, it was 75% off day, so that didn’t hurt either!) My hobby has been resurrected once more!
Here are some pages I’ve made since then:
This is a page of Jessica Watts, Frosty and I on our first snow day of the year.
This one is of Cami Williams and I, while we were bored at a Diamondbacks game last year. (The background on that one is that since our softball team won state, we were asked to go and stand on the field with all the other 1A, 2A, 4A and 5A winners while the D-Backs were warming up. It was a BLAST! And we got to be on the big TV in the corner that everyone tries to get on when you’re there!) Good times!
This last one is of my suite and I when we were ice skating, which I wrote a blog about, so go check it out!
