Well, it has been ages since I turned out a scrapbook page. I am busy always designing for Storytellers Club, or just sewing or crafting something, so I don't really have time to scrapbook. On my recent retreat, I completed a few pages, along with making cards, and beading for upcoming girls camp of which I am the director.
I have this sterling silver ornate easel in my living room, that I like to make different paper decorations to hang or sit on, depending on the holiday or season. Here is my "spring art project" Better late than never, right?
I mounted it on a little board that has holes drilled through for the ribbon.
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!
