I just made these medallions which are ready for a lovely craft, or maybe a scrapbook page or even a card. Don't know what yet, but I will probably post these in my Etsy shop. I then found these bobbin spools in my stash, and had seen one that was decorated, so I decided to try doing just that. They have patterned paper, pages from an old book made into flowers along with satin ribbon roses, clunny lace and tiny baskets and bird tags attached. The lovely bird tags came from Petite Paperie on Etsy.
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
