Yes.

I madeabout 27 home made Christmas cards this year.  By the time I was  done it was a good 30 hours  of work and the cost of about $2 to $3 by the time I was done.  I love to make them.  I send them to my family and special people in my life.

 

My son and daughter in law had a baby in October and I am scrapbooking the 9 months of them being pregnant.

Starting from the announcemnet to us till the day the baby came home.

I would say a good 500 photos.  Plus making me one at the sametime. So a good 1000 photos.

That way I can enjoy and look back.  Also with the thought of,

when I pass, mine can go to  my grandbaby.  

 

Scrapbooking  I love.  But I do have  many unfinished books.

I am fine with it.  My problem is time and I love to take photos. 

One day, yes one day they will all get done.

I'm into cardmaking and love it.  Unfortunately, I've developed a passion for high end Anna Griffin cardmaking materials which are a beautiful old-world style but expensive.  I sent out the most beautiful Christmas cards this year.  My family and friends loved the cards and I loved making them.  It's a great outlet for my creative juices!

I enjoy making simple cards using a hand cranked die cut machine for making embellishments.  I also enjoy making junk journals because I'm so sappy sentimental and save way too much sappy sentimental stuff.  I find material to use a lot of greeting cards I've received from close friends and family so their well wishes and beautiful cards can hang around a little longer while serving a purpose.  I write notes in the journals, add some busy-finger artwork and in general have a blast creating them.

I love both scrapbooking and card making. Cardmaking allows me to be creative and turn out something for quick gratification.  Scrapbooking allows me to again be creative but takes a lot more planning and it is more time consuming.  Both are calming arts for me because I don't worry about being perfect with either one.  There are no mistakes, only creative opportunites.
