I'm having fun getting back into scrapbooking more. I think knowing that someone thinks my work is good has really inspired and motivated me to really enjoy the artwork aspect of scrapbooking again. I had sort of gotten into a mode where I was just working to get caught up and not really enjoying the process anymore.
Today I made a "quote border" that turned out really pretty. I also drew sketches for a couple more that I plan to make soon. The layout pictured here was one I made last weekend at the scrapbook store. The store owner, Wendy, liked it so much she asked me to make her a duplicate for her daughter's album. She brought me all the materials, all I had to do was assemble it. In exchange she gave me five dollars off my next crop! While I was making it several customers in the store stopped by to tell me how much they liked the pages, which I consider a really nice compliment since I was just one of several women cropping in there at that time.
This afternoon the girls and I swung by the scrapbook store on our way to get groceries. I picked up the materials for my upcoming Tuesday night class. I'm still nervous about that, but I'm hoping that it will just be the beginning of developing a base of women who will start coming every month. Wish me luck!
