Recycled Scrapbooking

I am enjoying this scrapbooking phase of my life. Once I get started on the 30+ years I have in bins, maybe not so much.

 I've been trying to convert our storeroom into a storage area/craft room. Last week I hung some floating shelves, which you can see to the right. This is an 8 x 8 room and one wall has two 6 foot high x 4 foot wide shelving units. My work table is my sewing machine cabinet. The sewing machine is not in it but in its case underneath the cabinet.

Over the weekend, DH and I attended the 10th Annual Art Prowl.  The scrapbook pages are made from a very colorful napkin I found at one of the art studios, and I've recycled handouts. Even the lettering is done from scraps I've saved from trimming 8.5 x 11 paper down to 6 x 11 (6 x 12 is the largest size I can use on my Cricut cutter.)  Not everything is completely glued down. And I have one more page to work on. If you click on the images you can see some of what we saw on the Prowl.

The art prowl is traditionally the first weekend in November here in Cookeville. If you are ever in the area, it is well worth seeing and it is free.

  1. The recycling thig is a good idea, but if you are using paper that isn't acid-free, it can screw up pictures and other paper it comes in contact with over time. They make little plastic sleeves you can use to put non-acid-free (acid-ful?)stuff in.
