I have always liked working with paper. When I was a baby, Mama kept a box of old magazines stashed behind the sofa, and when I was in the mood, she'd pull the box out and I would tear the magazines into strips. To keep me quiet in church, she'd hand me a Kleenex, and I would tear it into strips. She figured it was a sign of genius. At restaurants I fold my straw paper into 4ths lengthwise and tie bows or knots.
I love making cards - quick projects, quick feedback. I usually keep them pretty simple. I don't have the patience and meticulosity (like that word?) for a lot of embellishments and glitter, like my friend over at Camellia Cottage Designs and all her linked card designers. But I love looking at what they have done. I could peruse those many crafty blogs all day. OK, I admit it: sometimes I do.
