My Scrap Room

I thought I would take a moment to share some pictures of my scrap room. A few years ago we turned my step-daughter's bedroom into this room. She had moved out and was living in Rochester for a while, so we figured it was safe to convert. We were bored during the big Valentine's Day snowstorm and started painting. It only took a few days to complete. I love my room and spend a lot of time there!

Basically, I started taking pictures in the doorway and walked in a circle to get pictures from different angles. You can click on each picture to see a larger image. Hope you enjoy the view!

Welcome to my new blog!

My name is Jolene Barron and I have been a Close to my Heart Consultant since March of 2005. I have created this blog as a way to share my art and my love of paper crafting. I plan to post artwork and other pictures that I believe others will like to see. Please feel free to comment on any post and share your opinions with me. I look forward to meeting new people and sharing ideas through this blog.

In addition to being a Consultant, I am also an Elementary Technology Teacher for students in grades K through 5. I have been a teacher for ten years and I love my job! I am currently a student in the Ed.D. program at Wilkes University. Between work, classes, and life it is tough to find time to craft, but I continue to do try to make time as much as possible.

I hope you enjoy what you see here, and return often!
