The Nest~

Some of you may know this.. and some may not.. but for the past couple of years I have headed a forum that was built amidst the breakdown of a former forum that I belonged to and that a lot of my scrappy friends belonged to as well. Well, over the years we had a bit of drama and with that bad apple lost a few regular posters. With a majority of the girls coming from one area.. others were feeling left out and whatnot. I never wanted it to be that way and they did not intend that either, but it happened. We all knew each other and we hadn't advertised much and just stuck with our small little group. It probably isn't a good thing as it stifled things almost to a stand still. I thought many times of just shutting it down.. I even gave the lead over to my friend Cat and though we still collaborate together just haven't done a whole lot with it for the past 6 months or so. but...

Recently, it just seems that I cant find what I miss from our little place on the web. I like coming "home" and chatting about anything.. not just scrapbooking. I like to focus on real things happening to us and it just so happens that a lot of us scrapbook. I decided to give the forum a new look and a new name and start advertising again.. not only for scrappy folks but anyone..and everyone. With Facebook being so prevalent right now it may be tough, because well we have each other, but not games.. or surveys... haha those things we get hooked on.

Butttt... I would love it if you stopped by and just give it a try. Don't be shy.. post to any subject.. we have a TON. And in addition.. I am going to start the monthly Scrapbook Layout Contest again starting in September. This could be an opportunity to win some great crafty stuff. Also, I would love to see swaps again.

Please come by.. register and tell your friends.. Id appreciate it!!! ;o)
