Joining the Blogging Wagon

I finally thought it was time to join the blogging wagon, primarily for my love of paper crafting.   So let me first start by introducing myself.   My name is Minousha Bari, I was born in Toronto, Canada, but now live in upstate New York (recently voted the snowiest place in the country)- this year however, we have been blessed with spring like weather all through winter.   I am married to my wonderful husband of 12 years Raslaan, and have two daughters Anah (8 years) and Alaia (3 years going on 16!!!!!).  I graduated from the University of Toronto as an Occupational Therapist many many years ago.   I recently took a leave of absence from work, to be at home with my girls (and am LOVING every moment of it!!).  My primary purpose for creating this blog is to share my love of paper crafting.   I started scrapbooking seriously probably three years ago, however I've always loved taking pictures and preserving the memories.   In fact, as soon as I graduated from university I went down to live in Louisiana for two years, and used the old fashioned method of posting my pictures in a black cardstock albums and journalling my thoughts beside them!!!!   I still love looking back at those albums!!!!

Besides papercrafting, some of my other interests include exercising, running, and cooking.   I am hoping to do a half marathon in a few weeks so that has been consuming my extra time recently (there I've said it publicly now I have to do it)!!!!!   From time to time I will post extra tidbits about my other interests or my life happenings!!!!

Last summer we were fortunate enough to visit  Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai UAE, and we swam with the dolphins, here is a picture of my family(still have to scrap this one)!!!!!

One of my newest favorite web browsing pastimes is Pintrest, there is such wonderful inspiration on it on all things.   This week I made a layout based on something I had pinned.   Last weekend we went to the Strong Museum of Play in Rochester, NY and Alaia my three year old rode the carousel all by herself for the first time.  

I look forward to sharing with you!!!
