In other news of the scrappy variety, this past week there was some very sad news, Two Peas in a Bucket announced they were closing their doors. I loved looking at the galleries there and the awesome inspiration from the Garden Girls....and the fabulous videos full of inspiration, oh how I will miss them.
I fully admit at still being a little blue after this announcement, but accepting I guess. In the last year my two favorite places have closed (Archiver's and Two Peas in a Bucket.) It is so disheartening to see such great companies close their doors. It makes me wonder if it is perceived by others outside of the scrapbooking world that paper crafting is not valued? That crafters creations are not valued...be it cards, scrapbooking, Project Life, art books, sewings, and what not. It's something to think about.
Regardless of outsiders perception of scrapbooking, I know that scrapbooking will be around as long as we keep creating and sharing with one another. I plan on doing just that, every week here on this blog. Long live paper crafts!
