I spent a portion of this morning engaged in one of my favorite activities – scrapbooking. Like writing, I usually wait for the muse to hit and then I can spend hours at the project. I once scrapbooked for the majority of a three-day weekend. I go on scrapbooking weekends and outings with my friends, and I dream of one day going on a scrapbooking cruise — all you can scrapbook (while at sea) and then day and evening outings to exotic locales. Don’t laugh. They really have these kinds of cruises. I admit, it does seem a bit much, but with my lifestyle, unless I go away to do it, I won’t do it.
Today I set up on my parents’ backporch and finally got around to making Christmas presents. When I give these out – sometime in March – they will just be called presents. I’m even thinking about making these for sale. We’ll see how that goes. I love to make full scrapbooks, but who has time to make an entire scrapbook for friends. These “pages” are actually framed and will feature a favorite photo, that can be switched out at the whim of the receiver. (I’m not showing off the ones that are actually presents, just my prototypes.)
I make a mess when I scrap. Here’s a sampling of my supplies. Love those rhinestones.
Almost ready to frame.
With another color scheme. I made vertical ones as well.
