My first post

Well, I took the plunge and started a blog! For my first post I thought I would share the story of how I named it. I was struggling with creating a name. I kept trying to come up with a catchy phrase that incorporated a craft item but nothing was working. Then my new brilliant, creative friend Ted gave me some advice. He told me to think about my passions and use it in the name. My two great passions are family and crafting. I know you are all scratching your heads wondering what Toast & Jelly have to do with those two things but they are very connected. My Aunt introduced me to stamping and I fell in love with it. After I had my daughter (and felt like I would never be part of the grown up table again :) we formed a group of stampin' buddies that would converge upon her house for some late night crafting. Without fail we would end up snacking on toast and jelly!! I can't eat it without thinking about all the good times we shared. With this blog I hope to expand my group of stampin' buddies and create a warm, supportive environment to showcase my artwork.

Thanks for stopping by ~ MamaReebs
