So in my attempt to be a better blogger I'm posting some photographs that I have taken lately.
Thank you for stopping by!
I just love these lost and found stamps from my minds eye and I really battled to find the last two sets, luckily cariena was at my rescue.
Do your self a favor and check out the beautiful stamps that Shamela is selling.
I got great service from both these ladies.
I do most of my scrapbook shopping online as we don’t even have a craft store where I live let alone a scrapbook store. The closest one is 70 kilometers away from here.
I also found these pins and thread at the local material shop for unbelievable prices. The pins where R9.50 and the thread R8 for all of them. I’m not sure how I will use it yet, but I will find a way lol.
I also found these wire baskets to organize some of my stash.
For the last two years I haven’t made any new years resolutions, I don’t stick to any of them and then I feel horribly let down in myself.
The Last year and a half I have been really focused on my Personal life and career and scrapping took a back seat, I slowly started to scrap again in about August / September 2010. I really enjoy scrapping and it relaxes me and just makes me feel so good to create. It really is like therapy. I really want to grow within my scrapbooking so this year most of my goals are Scrap related.
1) Start a blog - Check
2) I want to try new styles and techniques.
I really don’t understand why I’m sometimes scared to try new things, so what if it doesn’t look good, try again or just don’t use that style or technique.
3)I want try and journal on my pages. Even if the journaling is hidden.
I am not a great writer and my spelling sucks, but what I love most about other peoples scrapbooks are the stories, yet it’s the one thing I don’t do in my own scrapbooks. A while back some one was throwing away old albums, own was a leather bound album with black pages and photo corners, the pictures inside was that of a family member that was a nurse and went to work in Egypt. Beautiful black and white photos and on nearly every page she wrote names of the places in the photos or a little bit more of the people in the photos. That made me realizes that if someone paged through my scrapbook, what they would know about me and the story I’m trying to tell.
4) I want to play more.
I’m always so worried if something looks right. If I follow everyone else and don’t do what I want to I’m never going to find my own unique scrapping style.
5) I want to be published in one of our local magazines.
But before I attempted that I want to work on the previous goals.
6) I not going to buy beautiful scrapping supplies and save them for the right photo.
Its scrapbooking, making layouts not collecting beautiful supplies, I recently started to use some of my stash that I bought when I started, because I saved it or was too scared to use it because I was still a beginner.
7) I want to MAKE time to scrap, by waiting for free time I hardly scrap.
8) If I start a layout I must finish it!
9)Work on my scrap space.
At the moment I have miss match furniture and things all over the place. So I want to re furbish the furniture and finish off the room and try to keep is clean.
What are your goals for 2011?
