Andrea and I got together again for a day of crafting. I made a vintage wall hanging with a B & W photo. Craigslist had a box of misc old pictures listed and couldn't pass up buying it. The photo came from the Craigslist box. I used a page from a children's dictionary I found at Goodwill, the buttons came from my grandma's stash.
The cigar box is a work in progress. The box has some major tweaking left to do.
I'm involved in an album swap on the Provo Craft message board. It is the small shape word book swap that Kathy Orta is coordinating. My partner for the 3rd and final month of the swap is Nikki Rich. I just received her album a couple of days ago and was completely amazed by her work and detail to the album. This album is just incredible.
Never intended on collecting Brownies. However, over time have managed to collect them. I love my families old b & w photo's and like them displayed with the Brownies. One day I will take them to a camera shop to see if I have one that works. I would love to take a photography class. I am in the picture with the kids, that picture was taken in Ste Geneieve Missouri. The other picture is with my mom and her girlfriends.
This is my first attempt at a welded word book. The physical therapist I've been going to for my back and foot issues just had a baby, Brooke. So I thought I would try it out and if it turned out good I would give it to him. I'm pretty pleased with it for my first time trying this technique.
I want to share my love of paper crafting. I grew up in a very creative environment. My mother had my sister and I crafting as little kids. My love for it stayed with me as well as fond memories.
I have 2 Airedale Terriers , Otto and Emma. They are like my children. Yes I'm one of those people. LOL
