I bought this card last year because I loved it.
I thought it would inspire me.
Instead it has languished in the drawer,
unseen and uninspiring.

My family has inspired me.

My daughter created a lovely birthday card.

She sewed the envelope too!

My husband created an origami butterfly for me.

He used a picture from an ad that came in the mail
for the front of my card.

My son sent an art card and a bracelet he made.
I want to make cards and bracelets too!

I remembered the butterfly girl card.
I had to hunt for her but I found her!

I want to do paper crafts.
I gathered some supplies. I started to make a mess!
Paper, scissors and fun. Art class in the kitchen.

My first project is to cover a box for 2009's small bits of keepsake paper that comes my way.

I have done scrapbooks for many years.

For 2009 I want to keep a memory box.

While my box was drying I put together a movable "paper works" studio.

I need places for the tiny bits of paper I will need to make cards. I need paper organization!

I still am working on felted hats and bags...Thursday is the first meeting of the year for the Weavers and Fiber Guild. I plan on attending.

I love being artsy....I love creating....I love making a mess!
