About The Scrap Yard

Welcome to my blog featuring everything that I love. My name is Kate and I am the Mommy to two beautiful boys, a little girl and the wife to the most wonderful and patient man I have ever met.

I am a Beliver saved by the amazing grace and the blood of Jesus Christ. Outside of my family and Christ, scrapbooking and decorating are my loves. I love to create mini albums and learn new techniques. I love vintage, shabby chic, asian,  middle eastern and parisian decor. I  love to incorporate these elements into my creations. I used to love painting with watercolors before the boys came along but perhaps one day I will get back to it. I also enjoy sewing, gardening, baking yummy stuff to eat, drinking aromatic tea, corresponding to friends by hand, reading all sorts of books and writing short stories. My most recent interests have expanded to herbal medicine making, blending my own teas, making Kombucha, sewing clothes for my newest little princess and art journals.So, maybe you will see some pictures of my other hobbies during some point but for now I am focusing on scrap projects. Thanks for stopping by!
