10 scrappy confessions


Okay: it’s time. I’ve been keeping secrets from you and for the good of all of us, it’s time I came clean.

Here’s we go…


I’ve never tried the packaging technique, because I suspect that I won’t be able to do it.

Even Kitty has tried this technique with great results, but still I hold myself back.

There: I’ve finally said it.


I’m mad-jealous of you girls with cutting software.

Not enough to save up to buy my own, but still… you get so much good white stuff to play with!


My husband has had to block instagram on all our devices to keep me away from it.

Quitting social media was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done and I’ve not been back once since… *schniff!*


I do however love my scrappy friends who have their instagram feed show on their blogs (thanks Andrea & Victoria Marie!)

In fact, if you could all add that widget, I’d be so grateful.


My husband does not know about the above ‘no social media’ glitch-ette.


My big regret is not feeling brave enough to teach in real life, as I think I would have really enjoyed it.

But sadly my introversion shouted the loudest each time I was asked.


I stopped doing Design Team work as, deep down, I suspected I was getting competitive and jealous and generally not a very sweet person.

I genuinely enjoy watching talented designers from the sidelines so much more than when I felt like I was in the race myself.


When it comes to technology, I’m like the little girl in the nursery rhyme: “When she was good she was very very good, but when she was bad, she was horrid.”

I suspect that I’ve been much nicer to live with since I’ve stopped getting my knickers in a twist over youtube content that insists on uploading at a snail’s pace.


I want all the pretty things until I have them: then I lose interest.

Unless it’s something striped. Or spotted. Then I just sit and stroke them.


If I lived nearby, my dream job would be working at Felicity Jane, packing boxes and making Jeana’s coffee. Seriously, I’d be in heaven.

So tell me: what’s your scrappy confession? Or do you have a question for me? Be sure to let me know!

  1. Confession #5 – I am ROFL 😂. I would confess to 1. Some compulsive shopping (to which I applied some of your advice, thank you!), 2. An overestimating of time vs desire to try new techniques (which feeds the compulsive shopping…), and 3. Scrappy “lurking” on social media instead of scrappy “doing” (due to the fatigue side of the medical problems I deal with). Great post, dear Suse. 💗 from Ohio.

    Oh, I think we all fall into the ‘lurking more than scrapping’ category! I can sit down intending to watch one process video, then hours somehow pass… perhaps I’ll put it in the ‘gaining inspiration’ category 😉


  3. Oh my my. I’m catching up my much-neglected blog reading and feel this was so kismet. Off social media? Is this indefinite or for a time being? I quit Facebook but thought today about IG, ‘I’m tired of feeling this way…’

    I am so glad you’re blogging though and I can get my fix of your beautiful art here.

    I relate with so many of your listed items. Thank you for being so YOU! 💖

    Oh, you’re so kind Greta! Thank you for this lovely comment. Yes, I’m done with social media now. The trouble was, I found it utterly addicting… I’ve tried all sorts of measures to make it work over the years, but for some reason, it’s just such an exciting pull for me that it was robbing me of peace. I miss it a lot but know for sure that I’m more content and balanced without all the chatter. xxx
