Hi all, a lot of October Afternoon and felt here. Oh, and adorable children.
Monthly Archives: January 2009
I haven’t left much of a trace of myself here. Not anything that would grab interest or begin a conversation. I haven’t quite decided what to do with myself here or even if I have a place doing this craft.
I really enjoy scrapping. I also love the publishing and the challenges, but, I don’t seem to be able to fit everything into my crowded little life. Which leaves me at a cross roads. My intention with this space is to begin. I am not entirely sure that I would call myself talented or able, but, I would like to try.
The other purpose that I have for this place, time, energy, and endeavor is hopeful. I wish to choose what I see, for a little while at least. Scrapbooking and writing about it seem to me to be about choosing what to pay attention to and what to remember. A little like weeding a flower bed, I can choose which plants to tend and bring into my home.
I haven’t been entirely sure that this is right. I am not sure that I should edit moments; choose what is and what isn’t, but I am tired. I am tired of half empty glasses and always seeing all of the angles. Here, for now, I am going to count the petals and smell my roses.
This is a little thank you card that I made with a “grab bag” of papers.
This is a little project that I put together for Scrapin’ the Music.
This LO was inspired by the crooning glory of Sir Elton John. It is creme cardstock, patterned paper by October Afternoon – paper lanterns, Pink Paislee – moon glade, College Press – jackson lodge, and Bam Pop. The letters are felt Thickers and Memory Makers, ribbon, buttons and a tiny dancer.
It has taken me some time to get any sort of idea of how to put this craft together. I have now realized that I am best when I stick to things I know how to do. I have found that it is easiest for me to lay me papers out like I would an outfit and accesorize.
This is what I am thinking about this week: week 2 2009. I haven’t got an answer.
