My Thoughts

Well, I’m busy doing bookkeeping right now. So I don’t really have much time to work on my scrapping. I have also been pricing madly all the items I want to sell on my garage sale that I’m having August 13th. It’s mostly my son’s toys and clothes. But as I was doing all that, I was thinking about all the projects I have done in the past years that I haven’t finished yet. Boy, there’s quite a lot of them! Anyway, I’m thinking that I should take you along with me as I complete them. So that is what I will do. I will start with one of those projects, show you what it looks like right now, then periodically do some videos of me finishing it. What do you all think? I think that will keep me motivated to finish them. Then when I finish the projects, I will put most of them up on my Etsy shop to sell. Wow, that’s a good idea! LOL! I know these projects aren’t really scrapbooking. They are other crafts like crocheting, knitting, etc. But I really should get them finished. So…..keep watching!


A Valentine’s Day project!

I thought I would try a new kind of craft–one that I haven’t done before. So after seeing this on “Martha”, I had to try it for myself. I think it turned out quite nice! I hand-cut the pink heart with an Xacto knife. It’s called “scherenschnitte”. ┬áIt’s German for the art of paper-cutting design, which literally means scissor-cuttings. It was a popular folk art in the 1800s, used to decorate birth and marriage certificates and even Christmas decorations. This turned out so well, I think I might do a few more!


A Cute Little Home Decor Project!

This is a project I did back in November 2007. I took a class at a local scrapbook store, and we made these. I think it turned out really good! You can add a picture to it by clipping it in the small clip that is on the small dark brown piece of cardstock.
