Welcome to the Thankful For My Crafts Blog Hop! If you found me first, please go to the BEGINNING so you don't miss anything!! Today we are sharing projects and/or stories about why we are thankful for our crafts!
Here is the lineup:
My son took a picture of me while I was crafting and I combined it with some scrapbook software from MyMemories. I have the quote "Live With Intention" on my scrapbook wall just above my laptop screen. I decided to alter it for my layout!
I used papers and embellishments from Princess Diva. Kind of fitting as I am the only girl in my family!! As you can guess from my blog name, I craft to de-stress. I wish I could get paid to sit and craft all day (in my own home doing my own pages mind you) because it is soooo relaxing to me. I am THANKFUL that my husband values the scrapbooks I create, that I have a Gypsy, that I have a ton of friends (and cyber friends) who share their ideas and resources, and that I inherited my mom's craftiness!!!
My youngest son, Tanner, just turned 6. He gets impatient with me when I am reading my book and he wants my attention. I ask him to please let me "finish my chapter" and then will give him the attention he wants. He loves looking at his scrapbooks and started to call them "my chapter books." My husband thinks it is so cool that Tanner loves his books. He doesn't bat an eye at what I purchase in order to make more scrapbooks ~ lucky me!!!
When I scrapbook, I typically use my Gypsy and Cricut. I was asked to try out this scrapbook software and give a review. I struggled at first (my husband says it is because I don't read instructions) but the more I played with it the more fun I had. I have created digital books and calendars in the past and I have to say I LOVE that I don't have to download all of my pictures before I get started. You just pull the pictures you want to use from your files. If you want more information, check out their website. If you want to save $10 off the cost of the software, just use my special code: STMMMS39803.
If you come visit my blog on November 15th, you could enter to win the software FREE plus $10 off your first purchase of paper and/or embellishments. There are also a ton of free downloads!
