A quick page layout

Thanksgiving 2010 scrapbook page

Something about the holidays always puts me in the mood to scrap. Maybe it’s all the cheesy movies and warm family vibes going around…or maybe it’s just that the new year is coming and I don’t want to end up one more year behind! I’ve been a little fiber obsessed lately, so it’s been a while since I’ve done a new … Continue reading →

The bucket list revisited

About this time last year, I wrote a crafting “bucket list,” of new techniques I wanted to learn, and projects I wanted to finish. I have actually done a lot of them already like finishing my wooleater blanket and trying hairpin lace, stranded knitting, and sock knitting. I feel like it’s been too much too fast though.  I’ve had a lot of disappointments with recent projects, and … Continue reading →


Rockport scrapbook page

This blog is supposed to be about knitting, crochet, and scrapbooking, but you may have noticed that I haven’t written much about scrapbooking recently. Well ok…ever.

The main background paper is the one with all the colorful lacey swirls on it. The top half was cut out using my … Continue reading →

Wedding card

I had to wait long enough to make sure this got to them first, just in case, but now I can finally show it to you! This was the very first project created in my new Workbox from the Original Scrapbox company:   Ok, so here’s the breakdown: It’s hard to see in the picture, but if you push the … Continue reading →

Working inside the box

Back in 2010, my already messy crafting area looked about like this. A few years later, it had gotten even worse and was to the point where I was spending more time looking for what I needed than actually using it. Then, this April, for my birthday, I received a wonderful, amazing, unbelievable present. It was a Workbox by the Original … Continue reading →
