Welcome. Today I am in my crafting space creating.
I am going to try and make this a weekly feature.
For along time I have just kept Sunday as a day to share a verse and that is all. Trying to keep this day Reverent. And giving me a day of rest.
But I have realized doing what I enjoy is a day of rest for me.
I hope you enjoy
Sharing today the planner method I started this month.
I am using a free local magazine that I am altering . . .
I loved this cover with horses. There are alot of galleries and art events on the island. This issue featured art.
I began by tearing out pages so that when I added paper the spine would not be stressed.
For each week I left a 2 page spread for Bible Journaling.
I add verses that speak to me from my studies and Journaling . . .
I used wax paper and cut a heart to cover the word.
Each week I write in my menu plans and things to do . . .
I left some of the print if it had interesting or pretty in pictures.
I loved this article about backyard Chickens. I have always wanted Chickens. Maybe some day.
I also use the calendar spread to record memories and things we do each day.
Another spread for verses . . .
I do a little simple decorating to leave room for verses
My spread for this week. I used washi and taped a post card memory. I received the post card from Europe. It is handmade. It is hard to see but there is a red boat. We see red boats out in the ocean so it was perfect to include.
Today I gathered the supplies for my next SWAP . . .
I am loving this collection and can't wait to begin creating . . .
I have collected paper, lace and trim, children's book pictures, photos from a decorating book, tickets and even playing cards!
A book page that I stamped with red hearts. And a napkin with birds and Cherries.
Trims, fabric a big red flower and one of the decorating book pages.
The photo with the Red Adirondack Chair was my starting off point for the theme I want to create.
The book page is fun. I have been hoarding it. I think it is time to use it and let someone else enjoy.
I am still thinking about how I will create the page. I will get started soon maybe even later today.
I want to finish and get it mailed on Thursday or Friday.
Last month the page SWAP theme was Monochromatic. This is what I received . . .
There are lots of places to tuck tags.
I like fibers used as the string on tag. This blue fiber is pretty.
Lots of different pieces of paper are also tucked in. I will be able to use all these pieces of paper either in my own Journals and Planners. Or in things I create and SWAP or give as gifts.
A decorated tag it was tucked into an envelope that is glued to the page. It is used as a Flip out.
More tags and a clean white space to for Journaling
A close up of tags. Butterflies and Birds are favorites be to use in a Junk Journal.
And on the back a small sack is glued. The bottom is folded up and glued to make a pocket.
One of my favorite things us making things for SWAPs and receiving beautifully created art.
I hope you've enjoyed this first visit to my crafting table.
Have a great week! And come by and visit! Leave me a comment!
