My Very First Written Tutorial is Completed!!
Though it seems like such a long time since I stated that I wanted to make video tutorials, but it just never seemed to work out like I thought it should. They just didn't seem to be professional enough in my opinion. So, I had someone to ask me to make them a kit for my Vintage Style 8x8 School Album. I thought that I would be able to use the class I had done on Ustream for the instructions for this kit but as I began to watch the recording back I realized that I had made a different sized album than the original I had made. So, I decided to write a tutorial for the album. When I started out I thought I would have it completed within a week tops! But, I actually just finished it up on Friday. I had been working on this tutorial more than two weeks! Any ways it is finished and I really enjoyed every minute of putting it together!! It has bunches of detailed pictures and I also created a few printables just for the pattern! It was so much fun! I am excited to get started on my next one! It is going to be very, very special. For now, I hope that you will take a look at it over in "The Scraps of My Life Boutique!"
Okie Dokie! Thanks for stoppin' in!
Happy Scrappin' Everyone!
This is the sock monkey I had Lynn of "Handmade Creations by Lynn", to make for my granddaughter. I made a flower for her head and a cute tu-tu for her to wear. I love how she has turned out :o) I think Jasmine will love her too don't ya think?!
I believe in my heart that the anger and revolt that people are voicing in the social media groups, in protest marches, in truly very small ways are simply trying to convey as do I the words that here to follow. Though extremely simple, I believe it is how most of us truly feel.
My heart feels such great sadness and such heaviness to see this country, the place that I have called home for all of my life, turn into a place that I can barely recognize any more. Considering that true, honest, hard working, Americans have sacrificed so very much for the freedoms that we see being taken from us by our own government, no less, on a daily basis. And with each new election of government offices we find ourselves governed by those who work against the further building of this once great, unified nation, but rather they only seek to tear down all that is good, and honorable. Stomping under their own feet the blood, sweat, agonizing tears of loss that help to build this country to the great nat…
I have for so very long, a few years now, wanted to make a doll house album. I have talked about it, drawn out ideas and designs for it, and mulled over it for quite some time. The only other project that took me this long to pull together was my first Recipe Album!! Yesterday, I decided on a design and today a theme! Two elements one absolutely must possess in order to create any thing at all! I was thinking I should like to have my book designed so that I can have interactive paper dolls in it. I thought that I would design them as well, but as I glanced through an old 2009 desk calendar by Mary Engelbreit, I decided I would try to use the many paper dolls I have in the magazines I have collected of hers over the years instead. I think I have found a suitable paper line as a base to start. So! Onward and upward I go in true Mary Engelbreit fashion!!
Wish me luck!
