Craig has finally come out with it. He doesn't know what I want a Bind It All for when I'm a scrapbooker and he isn't that keen on my artsy fartsy pages. I keep trying to explain that I'm a crafter not 'just' a scrapbooker but Craig, he loves his pigeon holes and labels. They do my nut in! He thinks I might be trying to stretch myself to thin with the wanting to learn to sew, knit and crochet as well as paper craft... and maybe, just maybe start drawing again. Me... I think that when they didn't give us the choice of Home Ec. at school they took away a whole other path I might have gone down. I want to correct that mistake now... maybe eventually go back to college and do a textiles or art course. I say it's like Craig only keeping one breed of bird or going after one type of fish when he's on one of his expo's. I think he sort of sees where I'm coming from... I think...
Anyway, I asked him what one of my pages did he love then and he said (surprisingly) my early ones, before I had any pretty paper. In fact his favourite was the 2nd page I ever did.This was possibly the quickest page I've done, and I got the quote wrong. I had no patterned paper and only one Sakura pen. But Craig loves it and I must admit I do too. He says it's all about the day not the patterned paper behind it.
So it's got me thinking. I'm going to try and do some pages this week that are about the photos, go back to where I started and see what happens. I'm never happy with my pages lately - maybe it's because I've been drawn in by the papers and forgotten it's actually supposed to be about the photos. The papers are supposed to enhance not take over... for me anyway. We'll see.
As for the rest of it and the stretching myself to thin - I think we'll have to agree to disagree on that one.
Thanks for stopping by :)
