I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time. I want to share with you some of the fun things I’ve enjoyed making in the past as well as some new things I’ve discovered as I’ve played in my craft room.
Most recently I’ve focused on papercrafts – rubber stamping and making cards mostly – and have also given myself permission to revisit some of the other things I love to do, like doll making, jewelry, and various other DIY projects. Many of my rubber stamping projects will have a Stampin’ Up! flavor to them, (since I have a TON of Stampin’ Up! supplies) but I intend to make my projects non-Stampin’ Up! dependent as much as I can.
In addition, the “wellness” part of this blog is important to me. I found out while doing research for a dissertation that creativity is very important in preventing burnout in people – especially people who take care of others – so there will be quotes, tips, organization ideas, and whatever else I’ve discovered that I have found helpful. I hope to be a “non-anxious presence” for you; a place to go when life is a little too much to take.
I’ve also spent some time creating planners, journals, coloring books – for kids and adults – puzzle books, and other similar books that I have been selling on Amazon. I intend to make excerpts from them available in my free library for you to enjoy.
Some of the ideas in my library are ideas for beginning paper crafters, scrapbook makers, “junk journal makers, and card makers who don’t have a lot of supplies but who want to get started in these absorbing hobbies. Other things will be for the more advanced crafter.
There are also some ideas of what to do when you’ve got the kids/grandkids on a snow day, holiday, or anytime day and they’re bored or maybe spending way too much time on electronics. And then there’s just some odds and ends of things too. As you can see, there’s a variety of subjects.
I’m SO VERY glad that you have taken the time to check out my blog. Thank You – I am truly grateful to you. I hope that you will find a LOT of awesome ideas here to inspire your own crafting – and your own well-being.
