Beth's 3 Wishes

Beth says, KAYA!

Since I stopped working, my life revolved around family and scrapbooking.

Good Health
Family Cohesion
Scrapbooking Stuff

Hidden Journaling:

1) Good Health

I wish for good health for all my loved ones especially my dad who’s turning 83 this March. I know my Dad’s sick as he has been having fainting spells every now and then. But he’s so hard headed that he won’t go to the doctor for a diagnosis. And it breaks my heart to hear him say that at his age, he’s ready to go. It’s me who’s not yet ready to lose another loved one as my only sibling has had a violent death only two years ago. I wish that my Dad still lives through 2008.

2) Family Cohesion


3) Scrapbooking Stuff

Since I’ve targeted to finish at least 1 layout a week, then I’d need a continuous supply of scrapbooking materials. I wish that I’d continue to have a regular budget, all throughout the year, for the new scrapbooking tools and supplies yet to come.

About ME:
I’ve had a purely retail professional experience of more than 20 years before I stopped working March of 2006. So far, I have not considered going back to work as I’m enjoying my new role as stay-at-home wife to Raffy and mom to Erika (9). I graduated from UP Diliman with a degree in BS Industrial Engineering. I discovered about scrapbooking only through the internet. I used to be involved in cross stitching and candlemaking before I learned about this craft. I began collecting scrapbooking supplies and tools late 2006 but only started making layouts early this year. I used to wonder why scrappers would still subscribe to expensive scrapbooking magazines when there are a lot of materials in the web. I found the answer to this question after I bought my first magazine, the Top 10 issue of CK. I also enjoy shopping for patterned papers but would rather look at them than use them. Scrapbooking relaxes me. It also complements my love for taking photos of everything.
