I am so excited about smashbooking!Hi, my name is Staci, and I am a crafter. I obtain supplies and keep them in bins until I need them. I have tools for scrapbooking, knitting, crochet, painting, jewelry making, I have a soldering gun, a wood burning tool, a glass cutter and gloves, a bottle cutter, wire for floral decor, wire for jewelry, colored pens, markers, pencils, you name it, it's probably sitting in my garage just begging for attention.
I enjoy trying new things and if something doesn't click with me, I'll just keep it for "one day". Hence, my collection.
I've always loved the idea of scrapbooking, it just did not click with me. I enjoy taking pictures and capturing moments, but for the most part, those moments are stored in my computer ... every once in a while I'll blow one up, slap it on canvas, paint it, distress it, and make it fun.
SOOOOOOO ... when this Smashbook idea came out, I was thrilled! But I didn't want to
However, this week we are having a Smashbook program and I was able to check out our already booming scrapbooking storage at church and pick up a few more things to allow our ladies to make their own Smashbooks. I like the idea of putting my thoughts and memories down in a non-organized fashion, gluing pictures down, several on a page, slapping some ribbon or small crocheted flowers (of which I have many), buttons, painting, ticket stubs, or whatever is lying around.
THEN I found "Scripture Journaling" on Pinterest ...
And I am even MORE excited!!I am excited about the adventure of studying Scripture and how it can be artistic and fun. I love using color and pictures to accentuate life, and here is a fabulous way to do this. All we need is our Bible, a journal, colored pencils or pens, and our open hearts and creativity.
Alright ladies, here we go!!
