The last challenge for the month! And cutting it a little fine :D However, this challenge was all about scrapping an aspect of myself. So I picked.... my craftyness!
Just keep tinkering.
I am a third generation tinkerer abouter. If not more. I scrap, knit, crochet, sew, bake, muck about with photography.. Too many hobbies, too little time. But I love it, and you've got to spend your pennies on something, and better crafty stuff than fags or booze, as Mum would say. I get it from her anyway. Mum scraps, sews, patchworks, gardens and makes dolls houses, to list only a few of her talents. She got it from Papa, my grandad, who makes model railways in more than one scale, can fix anything and makes radios. In biscuit tins.
I suppose we all like to keep our hands busy. There's always something to have a go at, to learn or to take to pieces to see if we can make one. And Papa says hobbies are good for your health. Keeping your hands busy keeps arthritis at bay. Who am I to argue with that?
With craftyness in mind, I added paint, ink, a hand-stitched title, chipboard and pretty paper all in together. But keeping in a yellow and white colour scheme with small scraps and the odd touch of blue helped to keep everything in check, and not become overwhelming.
And that sees me to the end of my challenges! Tomorrow, I'll post a round up of them all to coincide with Shimelle's Ten on the Tenth. I'll also stick in a linky thing if you've got pages to share. I've never used one of those before, so fingers crossed :D
P.S. Ordered three 12x12 albums. I've decided it's finally time for me to get organised and come up with a system. I think I like Shimelle's way of doing it. Any tips?
