I think because walking has been so difficult for so long that I’ve been reluctant to paper craft as it involves unpacking my storage drawers and moving to to the kitchen table where there is space. Now that my mobility is improving I was able to get everything out without pain and the paper crafting began.
I needed to make a card and from there was inspired to make other things as well.
First the congratulations card that kicked this bout of creativity off.
This card up-cycled from an old calendar.
Gorgeous Girl got in on the act and made some cards too. She’s getting pretty good with her stamp placement.
Now we just need to work on not getting the ink pad all over herself…
I also scrapped some photos from the beginning of the year. (I’m woefully behind in my scrapbooking).
Gorgeous Girl loves water. These photos were taken in Perth in January, 2012.
It looks like Gorgeous Man and I will be attending a conference at the beginning of next year (Gorgeous Girl will come along too). I started putting a travel journal album together for the trip.
That is where we are going. We are hoping to spend a week after the conference doing touristy things.
Finally, to keep it real, here is a picture of what my work space looked like after I’d finished.
I’d forgotten what fun it is to play with paper and scissors. I’ll have to try and do it more often.
