Sometimes we read something, learn something, hear some one speak on a topic that I like to call 'right place, right time'. When I invited Joan Ford on the show 6-10-13 it was at the exact time that my interest in 'taming' my scraps came about. Her way of thinking was at 'ah-ha' moment for me. Joan is back today to talk in more detail about scraps.. something we all have!
