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?!
There is absolutely no way that I can settle down long enough to put into words all the change and emotions I am and have been experiencing over the past two weeks! So, for now, I am just going to share a little with you.
I have less than one week now before I move to the Raleigh area with my hubby and grandson! I know! This simple sentence in no way explains anything at all! I have a sister and her family who live in the area. I have an Aunt, an Uncle, three cousins, who live in the area, not to mention nieces and nephews who have grown into young adults without me. Two of my grandchildren live there as well.
Lifetime of a story put short? My husband and I have lived away from home and family since we were first married and this December we will have been married for 32 years! I know! A whole 3/4's of a lifetime! LOL! We have been apart due to his job in the area for almost 18 months only seeing each other on the weekends. But two weeks ago we decided we were not waiting on the …
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!
