Getting Crafty

I've actually accomplished a couple of crafty things this past week. Before I turned to digital scrapbooking, I used to do lots of altered arts projects along with traditional scrapbooking. I haven't done much with that hobby in the last 4 years. I've been missing doing some hands-on art projects and thought I'd ease back into things with an easy project.

I had picked up a bunch of composition books on sale earlier this year and I thought I'd create some altered composition books. I went ahead and made a tutorial on how to make the books. I can't wait to make more and use more of my collage-y stuff with it.

I actually have one layout scrapped of Christmas. ;) I don't know why, but I always have a hard time scrapping the holidays. This is my bro. and my youngest dd.  All supplies from Designer Digitals.

I know I mentioned this before, but if you're looking for some crafty Valentine ideas check out the Valentine Candy Holders article I wrote for Squidoo.

Thanks for all the ideas you've been sending my way re: getting time for school planning and math. I appreciate the emails! :)

Had a good chuckle about the comment on the psychedelic paper on the notebook-it is the actual cover, and I don't particularly like it-so we're gonna be covering it...LOL, well unless the teen actually wants me to keep it that way. I am more "reserved" in my tastes, so that one is a bit weirded out for me-
and yes, you do inspire me and thanks so much-now I have spent some time watching all sorts of that chick chick lady to get back into the crafty mood too (I used to be a SU demo lady, so seeing it again brings back the creative spur in me)...:0)
