Woman has design published

A Barwick woman has had a design of her work published in the May-June issue of the world-renowned scrapbooking magazine, “Memory Makers.”
“I was ecstatic about it,” enthused Meredith Croswell, owner of Scrap-A-Bit on Front Street in Emo.
Scrapbooking is a popular pastime that explores different ways of presenting memories in a photo album. The challenge is figuring out unique ideas that showcase personal history with a mixture of photographs and text.
Croswell submitted her design entitled, “Mommy and Kelvin,” to “Memory Makers” magazine last year. She found out in December that her creation was going to be published.
“The design features pictures of me and my son together and a letter I wrote to him,” she remarked.
Scrapbooking fever hit Croswell after a house party five years ago introduced her to the hobby. “It just became a passion for me,” she explained. “I love the creative aspect.”
Croswell said there’s no limit to her interest in scrapbooking. “No two pages are ever the same,” she noted. “The possibilities are just endless.”
And she said she’s always digging for new ideas. “I expect to launch a Web site in the future,” Croswell added.
