Well, it's been quite the week... I've received lots of happy mail, including prizes I won on National Scrapbooking Day, books I've ordered, a book that I've been published in, ephemera (amazing stuff) from a friend, and much more. It's been very exciting!
Almost every day I've had a package, or two, to open and oooh and ahhh over. My hubby is actually starting to get a bit jealous about it.
These past few days I've been learning and making my very first fabric flowers for a flower swap with the gals who signed up for this month's handmade flower swap on Mrschievous Crafts' blog.
Now, admittedly I haven't played with paper in the traditional scrapbook kind of way much. But I am learning a lot, and having a heck of a lot of fun playing with paper. But I had a blast making flowers for this swap. I decided to make flowers that were sort of representative of my style. Organic, eclectic, and grungy. So I used tshirt material, denim, paper, glitter brads, jewels, cardboard and ribbons. I really hope my swapping partner enjoys them.
