My Space

Here is my scrap booking space. Mostly a storage space. I set up a large fold-up table to work on or bring stuff to the family room! My DH built his space in a closet in our guest bedroom. The room has two closets side-by-side so I took one for me!!

The real beginning....

I realized that my craft obsession began in elementary school! My dad pulled out a handkerchief and it had a little bumble bee embroidered on it. I forgot that I used to embroider his handkerchiefs in the corner with lady bugs, bumble bees and hearts! Then I went through a binder that I used to keep projects in or ideas of things I would like to do and I found the instructions for baby bottle covers! In middle and high school I used to crochet teddy bear baby bottle covers and give them to people as gifts! Well, I still give a lot of my craft projects away as gifts! One year it was beaded wine glass charms, the wreaths, cat doorstops, baby blankets.....the list goes on. My current gift obsession are my lanyards. Many of my lanyards end up as teacher gifts. Now I am in recipe card swaps for Christmas! So I hope people like their gifts this year!!

The beginning

Probably like many people I went through the wreath stage. Everyone received a wreath for a gift at some point. That was back in the '80s. My mom still has one of them hanging in her kitchen. I cringe every time I see it!
