Looking for my niche

For a while now, I've been looking for a new scrapbook forum to join. It seems that everytime I find one that I really enjoy and seem to connect with the members, it ends up shutting down. Since it's happened to the last forum I called my scrappy home, I've been on the search for a new regular spot to hang out and, so far, I just haven't found my niche. I will continue to look though, since I really crave sharing my creativity with like-minded crafty folks and finding some much-needed inspiration. I could really use some recommendations.

In the meantime,I'm gearing up for a crop with my friend Diane this coming Saturday. I haven't been to one in a really long time and I'm very excited for it, not only for the visiting but also for the large amount of time I'm setting aside to just create. I certainly don't get much of that in my everyday life with kids, housework, and school. We'll see how much I get done though... I usually end up spending a lot of time talking and not a lot of time working.

I think what I want to work on at the crop are some paperbag books. Both my boys just completed baseball season and I have a bunch of pictures from their games. I'm thinking a book for each of them for Christmas presents... and maybe a blank one for my Etsy shop. I guess I need to print out some pictures today and look on the internet for some inspiration. Maybe I'll find a new scrappy forum in the process.
