I’ve started the year as I have the last few years, looking through the 50 things list and updating what was completed the year before and what I could/should do this year to get closer to achieving as many goals as possible.
One of the goals is to start a scrapbook, it’s not something I’ve ever done before and having had a quick look at scrapbooking it’s terrifying !
All the different books, papers, cutters etc, where to start or even how. It’s easy to understand why people avoid crafting. It’s complicated and all the ‘help and tutorials’ make everything look easy and theirs always turns out perfectly however the reality isn’t always that way. It can be tricky, messy and not always straight, but they will be our memories.
So to start with I’m going to collect everything together in a special tin. All tickets, stubs, photographs, anything from days out, events and holidays. Then I can organise and start to plan how to put them together. Until then I can explore ideas and maybe perfect a few techniques or even just some straight lines.
