Maybe just a little overboard

my binder for the Knit and Crochet Show

A friend of mine suggested that I put together a binder for my upcoming trip to the Knit and Crochet Show this year. She showed me one of her old ones, which had travel and hotel details, registration confirmations, class information, etc. – basically everything she would need to organize her trip.

Using up scraps

If you’re like me, you have a hard time throwing away all the little leftover bits and pieces when scrapbooking. I have a big bin where I put all the odds and ends that I’m sure I’ll someday find a use for. Recently, that bin has been getting a little too full, so I’m making a conscious effort to use … 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.

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 →

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 →
