Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

This is the first year in 9 years that my daughter didn't exchange Valentine's with her class. I couldn't bear the thought of no Valentine's, so I created a few for her gym team. The idea was taken from Jeanette Lynton's blog. These lollipops looked so cute, I just couldn't resist!

On Thursday I started the Library of Memories class on Big Picture Scrapbooking. This online class involves not only learning about Stacy Julian's system of storing and scrapping photos, it involves relearning and changing my thinking, habits, and attitude towards photos and scrapbooking. Our pre-class assignment was to decorate our portable desktop, a clipboard. Here's mine:

And now the tough part begins. I'm still listening to the first lesson. In fact, I should be doing that instead of blogging!

Sketch Saturday, February

I apologize for my blog vacation. We have been sick, out of town, and otherwise occupied. However, papercrafts are never far from my mind.

At first glance, this week's Sketch Saturday didn't appeal to me. It seemed to balance, both horizontally and vertically. Then I looked at it a little while longer, and I was inspired.

Here is the original sketch by Jeanette:
