I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Butterfly Journal

Hi all!

I have a little project to share today. I made a journal to track all my progress on getting healthy this year. I want to lose weight and exercise more to help with my arthritis, and general well being.

This book has very little decoration on it, Just some patterned paper I received in a crop goody bag, some rick rack from my stash, a few stamped images, and an old butterfly fabric applique I had in my stash. The notebook is from the target dollar bins. (I LOVE those bins..so many great finds there!)

I also have this little stash of cards from a sheet of Archiver's Simple Stories 100 days of summer set, to add to the journal.

A project without using my Cricut..gasp! LOL I am sure its a fluke. LOL

anyway..that's all for now.
Thanks for visiting today.

Have a Great and Crafty Day!
