I need a Break! I have turned off my phone and will be doing nothing but crocheting or knitting, scrapbooking, crafting, and designing with my very dear friends from Nevada, Idaho, and Utah. I am so lucky to be in Fairview, Utah. Oh and I think we might get snowed in! (that would be so cool)
To get ready for it, I spent a morning two days ago making up batches of pomegranate jelly from our many bushes of pomegranates at home, to give to all my friends here.
It is also one of the friend's birthday this weekend, so I made another shabby tote for her with more vintage crochet lace on it, and one of the things I put into it, is another little gratitude journal.

I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
