My name is Jane, and I am a scrapaholic.
In the middle of trying to be retired, I have been volunteering, working a few days and trying to squeeze in some creative time as well as spend a little time working on the business part of my creating, so I haven't had a lot to show, yet, but these are finally done after working on them in stages since midsummer. Each is about 4x6" and has over 75 pages of random paper inside, just right for carrying in a purse. Each one also has two secret pockets in the construction, made for carrying other papers, pens, whatever one might need with their little book/journal. They are made from leftover canvas, nearly empty bottles of paint that were washed out for the project and leftover pieces of everything else in the scrap collection tub on my sewing table; quilt scraps, fabric remnants, doily bits, ribbons, buttons, doodads and whatnots. The top two are my favorites and also have some painted fabric and papers that I collaged together for another project. Yep, I have a feeling that scrappy chic isn't going away anytime soon.
