Well, it's not often that you hear me say that word but yes we did some scrapbooking in class today. We did make card as a warm up and introduction to the world of papercrafts for my new lady today but then it was on to PLAY TIME.
Scrapbooking is such an individual thing but absolutely absorbing and enjoyable, so much so that when it was time for class to end - nobody noticed! I "prepared" or rather enjoyed a few pages myself as samples for class and I used one of the gorgeous 6" x 6" ring albums to keep my memories in, such super little albums and they can hold loads of pages.....................so watch this space, more scrapbooking could be on the cards.

Well, yes indeed Life is Beautifull when you dont sew your fingers together! If you saw my last post you'll have seen that I bought a simple mini sewing machine for use with my card making projects, I dont sew. It probably took me about 1/2 hour to remember how to thread it and use it but thereafter I was on a roll and I love the project I've created.

Well, it's been a wonderfully crafty day for me today and I've enjoyed every minute of it. Just wish all days's were like that really. I've even purchased a mini sewing machine for my cardmaking projects you understand as I dont sew. My friend Elaine came with me and although she's convinced that she'll get me into sewing, I'm not so sure so a mini machine is perfect for me and I may even have a dabble with some of the gorgeous SU fabrics............who knows, there could be a budding seamstress inside me.
We had a fab class this morning, the class was full so there was much chatter going on which was fantastic, so much so that I'm surprised that any of the attendants found the time to listen to me at all, but they must have as they all left with two lovely projects in their hands and a smile on their face - who could ask for more from 2 hours on a Saturday morning?!
