I've been busily trudging away at the dollhouse for some time now. I have a bunch of furniture that came in for it too. But recently I have had a lot of stress hit me from several sides. I don't handle it well and I often go back to comfort things when it hits hard. So I have shelved the dollhouse for now. I am going to a show next month and hopefully it will pull me back in then. For the moment I am back to my first craft... scrapbooking. I was an avid scrapbooker for several years and then(3 years ago) like now, I had a series of very stressful events and I was turned off completely from it. I have done one or two projects but they were hard to complete as I was completely devoid of inspiration and creativity. But now I actually had a craving to do it! My wonderful husband let me run a little wild at Michaels when I saw they had some beautiful new lines from K & Company, one of my favorite brands. So here are the pages I have done in the last 3 days. I am amazed I got so many done!
The pages are in chronologial order of when I completed them starting at the bottom and going up. I always forget blogger uploads backwards with multiple images. So the top ones were done today and the others over the weekend. They are of myself, my WONDERFUL husband, and my BF Summer and my friend Lyssah. Can you tell I adore them? And it actually got me to use some of the new things I got. Like the letters in Good Times. I'm sooo very bad about hording my supplies. I have too many! But now I am forcing myself to use them instead of saying: "well what if I need them for some special project down the road? I must not use hem until then". And then they get stuck in a drawer and shuffled through everytime I'm looking for supplies, looked at and drooled over and put away. The paper in the top 3 pictures is stuff I bought 4-5 years ago. And its so pretty and perfect for use on my friend layouts.
