2020

Happy New Year!
It has been a busy start to this new year. I have been between here and there and everywhere since the holidays, so I have not been able to post.
At the end of 2019, I found myself making two journals. One journal was to house all the photos, cards, and memories I pin on two boards in my sewing room. These boards are my inspiration for the year.
I just used fabric and scrapbook paper to make this journal. The cover was made from a practice piece that I had stored in a bin. This piece was a combination of Gelli-plate printing, applique, and a whole mix of things I was trying. I ended up cutting and resewing the piece to make into a cover.

I am also experiencing a problem with my blog. Apparently, I have used up all my space by adding photos that are high in pixels. I thought that sizing them to thumbnail was all that was needed to save space.  I know enough about blogging to be stupid. My videos are not the problem because they are stored in YouTube.
I was given three options:
1. Spend an outrageous amount of time downloading all of the photos in my library, use a photo app to resize and then reload into my library
2. Delete the photos in my library
3. Upgrade at a cost

For now, the plan is just to make videos.

The second journal I made was a collection of blocks that I made for each month of the year. The cover was made using Kraft Tex. I will have another post about this great product.
In the meantime, I hope everyone has a peaceful and blessed New Year.

  1. I feel your pain about photo storage on your blog. I’ve been advised my site is getting ‘clunky’ because of the photos. I’m slowly going through and either deleting them from the library or reducing to a maximum width of 800 pixels – very tedious!
