I found this in one of my scrapping groups, the author is unlisted, let me know if you know its origin.

Shakers rattle, are you listenin'? In the aisle, beads are glistenin,! A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight! Walking in a scrapbook wonderland!
Gone away is my money Here to stay's my croppin' buddy! We're singing a song, as we shop along Walking in a scrapbook wonderland!
In the workroom we can build a layout Using diecuts, punches, fibers too! We'll have lots of fun making our layout And they have just the right shade of Bazzill blue!
Later on, we'll conspire As we crop by the fire To bring all our pics and our hermafix Walking in a scrapbook wonderland
In the workroom we can build a layout With our eyelets, stickers, tags and brads. We'll have lots of fun making a layout! All those patterned papers make me glad!
When we crop, ain't it thrillin', Though the shop's makin' a killin'? We'll frolic and play the Scrapbooking way Walking in a scrapbook wonderland.

My love shrine

This is my little love shrine, hanging in my scrapbook room inspiring me to create and love. The shelf , I inherited from my beloved grandmother, making it more special because it now idolizes my two favorite people; Grandmom and the love of my life...
The wooden letters were decopaged and embellished with scrapbook embellies. The little heart hanger was $1 at Michaels, the picture frame was from the clearance rack, I painted the clear plexiglass with pink alcohol ink. The frame in the background is simply a 12x12 piece of cardboard, covered in pretty papers from K&Company's Valentines collection and hearts and embellies from various companies. I am pretty fond of my little shrine.

Ribbon Storage

This is my ribbon organization system, its one of those hangers for 4 pair of pants. The ends open up easily so you can hang your ribbons on it. I thought it was a great, cheap ribbon storage solution.
