5 Layouts and Needle Point.

So. I've been doing a bit of scrap booking lately. It's been forever, right? It feels a little foreign, but still fun. After not scrapping for awhile, I always feel like I've forgotten how to do it. Crazy? Maybe, maybe not.

I've completed 5 layouts so far. Tim's nephews and my baby cousin seem to be my inspiration lately. I'm finding I need more of a variety of photos to scrap. I need to make a mental note to start taking more again.I also decided to try out needle point, not realizing at the time that it takes FOREVER and a day! I had picked up a vintage cottage growth chart kit at Goodwill months and months ago and it's just been sitting around. This year, I've decided I want to experiment. Just create for the sake of creating, acquaint myself with news crafts and forms of creativity. I want to work on my sewing skills (or lack thereof), I want to make a quilt, I want to learn to crochet and learn how to properly embroider, among other things. I may pick up papier mache-ing again too.Back to needle-pointing, though...this growth chart is like 4 feet long and is taking me so long to complete. It's a nice fairly mindless activity, but I'm not so sure once I'm finished if I'll want to take it up again very soon. We'll see.

What have you been up to?

Your scrapbooking is amazing! I am in the same shoe as yours..I would love to properly embroider, knit and crochet. I learned how to knit a few years ago but can't stay with it long enough to finish anything. Too many hobbies I suppose.
