Prompt: Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it.
The last thing I made was a baby shower gift for one of my sorority sisters. I enjoy making frames and photo albums for others. Here is an example:
I used scrapbooking material and purchased a 12 x 12 Scrapbook frame from Michael’s Craft Store.
I want to make my annual Year in Review Page to highlight the positive things for 2010. Here are two examples from the past:
I have also wanted to make a quote dictionary for a long time, as well as a family binder. I have all the pages, now I just need to create the actual binder lol (for the family binder). As far as the quote dictionary, I have it laid out in my head, but I’d like to get it out of my head and onto paper.
One of the things that I would like to do more of in 2011 is scrapbook and the best way to do that would be to schedule some “Crop” time in my calendar. I would love to find a community of scrapbooking women like myself in Chicago to meet with once a month or so, so that we can “feed” our creative habit. I also want to finally enroll in Stacy Julian’s Library of Memories class to finally get my scrapbooking life in order. Find more information here: http://www.bigpictureclasses.com/lom2010.php
BTW, I am THRILLED that today’s prompt comes from the writer of The Happiness Project which I am currently reading.
