Scrappy Happiness is Back!

posted on: 7.05.2014

You do not know how excited I am to finally be writing this post. As many of you know, I stopped writing on this blog about a year ago due to a change over to Wordpress. The change wasn't only my blogging platform but also what I blogged about. I essentially dropped scrapbooking off the face of the earth because my space and time was limited. I was sharing a small apartment with three other students and attempting to be creative was a challenge. I only took one little 9 drawer unit of crafting supplies with me which was a HUGE compromise (Don't believe me? Check out my past room tour! I'm Crazy!).

These past months have been full of school work, building my new blog, networking and learning how to live life on your own. Keep in mind that I am still only 18 years old (turning 19 in just 20 days now). I constantly watch all of my old favorite you tubers on the daily when their videos pop up in my feed. I use to get sad thinking about the fun videos, blog posts and friends I made and created over the past 4 years of blogging at Scrappy Happiness. I really want that back and so I have decided to re-open Scrappy Happiness as a strictly Scrapbooking / Paper Crafting / Altered Art blog. By no means am I closing my fashion & lifestyle blog as it has become a HUGE part of my life that will never leave. Clothes are easy to maintain a blog about as scrapbooking is rather hard without the space.

Since my last apartment I have moved to a much nicer and spacious apartment that has allowed me to craft a bit more. I have a few projects to share as well once I get back to LA as I am currently on a short summer break. I hope to share so many projects here on Scrappy Happiness and I hope you will follow along with me.

  7. Hi Drew, I've been following you for the past few years and I must say you've really grown into a wonderful young man. I love how you work so hard in school (President's honor roll if I remember correctly) and keep your family and friends a big part of your life. Your Mom must be so proud of you. I'm really looking forward to seeing even more of your art and school work. I've always loved your projects so I'm looking forward to it your new ideas...and a review of your old as well!
