WHAT'S ON MY WORK TABLE

Guess I've been a tad bit busy.....
I do have to say, when I get my mojo on I don't care what the place looks like, you will see what I'm talking about in a second. I joined a swap at Bella Creations (anyone can join this site/blog) for a 6x6 mini photo-journaling album. WELL, let me tell you, I have never made one of these in my entire life nor have ever seen one for that matter, but I signed up anyways. I am crazy for a good swap you know. It did not take me long to say, "what in the heck have I gotten myself into"... I decided to make my album out of brown lunch paper bags. I sat through many tutorials on youtube, watching how to make the album itself. I had to finally bring hubby in on the action to help me out. Sometimes my brain doesn't get things :( The Easter fabric will be for my next mini album (boy am I hooked now!) Once I mastered the construction of the album (many lunch bags and doublesided tape later) I was ready to get to the real fun. As you can see here, nothing stopped me as I created this mini album. Oh I forgot to add, in short time I was given the name of my swap partner and guess what? She happens to be one of the creators of Bella Creations, NO pressure here ladies :( All in all I think the mini came out pretty good for a first timer. I am happy with it. Most of what I used I already had in my stash (I like this idea) Here is a tiny sneak peek. I will post the mini in the next few days.
Thanks for stopping by.

ps, Happy Spring!
