First of all, I'd like to thank you so much for visiting the A Matter of Memories blog!

I work full-time as the Assistant Director of Admissions for a Midwestern, private college and enjoy my work very much.

However, my hobbies are also very important to me. I am proud to call myself an obsessed scrapbooker and avid ametuer photographer.


It is these loves that led to the creation of this blog and it's been rolling strong since early 2007. I found that it was a great way to share my passion with others online.

While the AMOM blog has changed a bit over the years, I hope you'll find a thing or two that inspires you as you look around.

Here's a few reader favorites that I'd encourage you to check out:
  1. Be Inspired Creativity Prompts: This free download is posted monthly and offers scrapbooking prompts for photography, titles, journaling, color schemes and much, much more! 
  2. Word Art Freebies: Periodically, I create word art freebies including quotes, titles and journaling helpers to share with you.
  3. Reviews: I am an idea book junkie. I admit it. Therefore, I often share a summary and my thoughts about the the newest idea books.
  4. Giveaways: Often, I also have copies of the idea books and sometimes scrapbooking supplies to give away to a lucky reader. I make it easy to enter, so stay tuned.
  5. Products: I love to share my favorite new scrapbooking products! I do this most often through :FIVE FAVES: posts which highlight five products within a particular theme or :FIFTEEN ON THE FIFTEENTH: posts which highlight my fifteen general favorites to hit the shelves in the past month.
  6. Projects: Or, if you're just looking for a little eye candy, take a look at some of the projects I've posted.
It would certainly be wonderful if you would share the A Matter of Memories blog with others.

"I love your Creativity Prompts.  It is just such a wonderful blend of ideas and techniques. I am one of those people who needs help with journaling, scrapbook layouts, ideas for actually scrapbooking...the creativity prompts hits each of those areas. I also enjoy the links that are given for products used and sites that you can go to for free downloads or ideas for my pages. Another thing I like are the download word art freebies.  They are all so unique and the best thing is they are free. I have sent the link to this site to numerous friends and they have all emailed me back thanking me profusely for sharing this site with them. Thank you so much for taking the time to create these special things to share with fellow scrapbookers. I really appreciate it."
