It’s time again for the OLW blog hop!
During March we were asked to take “One Little Action” on our word:
select and commit to doing one little thing.
March is the month I planned on really starting to gather all the tools I needed to begin Creating some projects. There were a couple of major events on the calendar this month that I used as a starting point. There was a Craft Expo held over 4 days in Sydney. I wanted to make sure I could get as much out of it as possible so I bought tickets to attend 2 days. It has been about a decade since I’ve been to one of these events and I was in crafty heaven. Soooo many products to choose from! Scrapbooking, card making, beading, sewing, doll making, patchwork, quilting, the list goes on. I stocked up on scrapbook and patchwork supplies. I sat in on a couple of seminars on patchwork and card making, and I watched a number of demonstrations. A couple of methods I’d never seen before are French Scrapbooking and Paper Quilting. I’m really interested in trying paper quilting this month!
Now that I’m set with the tools I’ve completed a few projects and pages. You can see them here and here. One project I finished, which I wasn’t planning on doing, is finishing a mini book of my Dad that I started 6 years ago after he passed away. It has given me closure and I can now look through his photos with a smile.
Below are the March pages for my OLW album. I’ve added more pinks in this month which blends in with the photos from February.
I have signed up to a couple of other Big Picture classes (Finding your Way; Creative Juices; Photo Finish) and I’m doing a Crop Bootcamp with Blue Bazaar which is 30 layouts between 1st April to 31st May.
Let the Creating Fun begin!
