Back when I still thought I had time to pursue other crafts, I often thought how wonderful it would be to make scrapbooks. Now if you know me and have seen my house, you will know how silly this is, for many reasons.
First off, my DH and I are not much in the way of photographers. Our daughters both are great at this, but taking pictures has always been an after thought for is.
Second, we are a family of “thing people.” We all have lots of stuff, but for all of us it’s mostly disorganized. In spite of clearing out the old house to move AND clearing out more stuff after we moved, random stuff within sight include a coronation mug for Edward VIII (the guy who was never crowned because he abdicated), random cigar boxes, and boxes of postcards and images waiting to go someplace.
But maybe if I had known about this easy idea to integrate needlepoint with scrapbook, I might have tried. It’s from HGTV and they have detailed instructions. You just use the canvas as a kind of stencil.
How cool is that!
