Hello dear ones!
I am either being very brave or very stupid to share with you
a paper bag album that I made a couple of years ago.
As the mother of a genuine scrap booking designer, I feel like who am I to
show what I've done. Lindsey's work is very detailed and 'chunky', multi layered and in comparison,
my work is very plain. It is just my style she tells me.
I do enjoy dabbling in paper, but for me it is work. I have to think too hard and I have
a problem 'commiting'. The paper is almost too pretty to cut!
Every since I was little I have had an inner need to create something, anything. I started out
with decoupage and learned to knit when I was eleven and learned to crochet shortly after that.
I was also sewing my own clothes from a young age out of necessity. I was an
overweight child who couldn't find clothes to fit me off the rack.
As an adult, I continued to sew, embroider and taught myself to cross stitch.
I continued to knit and crochet, even learned to do broomstick lace!
I call it a slow burn in my soul that makes it impossible for me to not be creating something.
In fact, while I am working on a project, I am already thinking of other ideas and designs.
Because of this I have many 'works in progress'! Oh, if only there was more time!
I encourage you to create something today. Find that burning urge in your soul.
You might be surprised! I had always wanted to be a muralist and I got to realize my
dream when a co-worker allowed me to paint a mural on her dining room wall!
Whatever you would like to do - DO!
Creating is good for your soul!
Have an amazing day!
