Sister Lori here: I have always loved crafting. I am not sure when it started but I did learn sewing from 4-H. I sewed most of my clothes in high school. My favorite thing to do was look at patterns and fabric. After school I learned other crafts.
My most recent favorite is stamping and scrapbooking.
Here is a birdhouse ornament I made last Christmas:
This is an altered Rolodex:
Since I worked for the Post Office, I found some crafts for stamps. I laminated these stamps of classic books together to make bookmarks. I also used to laminate other stamps for earrings.
I have also enjoyed beading lately and made these Christmas tree earrings for gifts last year:
Thanks to Twyla and Lindsey of Two Crazy Crafters for the tutorial on these scrapbook paper bows I used on a gift this year.
I guess I will never stop crafting something. It's very fun to create and to give homemade presents. It's the thought that counts!!!
