So a couple of things have happened over the last few weeks and they had me thinking about my blog and what I wanted to share or not share. But since I am already here I might as well share and maybe it will inspire someone else to try something new!
This was the first big thing that happened. This is a checkmark off the bucket list. I don't have a big bucket list, but I have always wanted to learn how to sew. This studio has been in town for just a little while and is not too far from me. Every time I drove by I would see a sign about classes. I finally got brave and just signed up!
I figure if they can teach kids, surely they could teach me something. It starts in April and is for the entire month. So, I thought I might share a post each week on my "learning to sew" adventures. I need a catchy title for those posts, so if anyone has any ideas pass them my way!
The other thing I have already announced that I am working with a digital designer "Scrapping with Liz" on using her templates with paper. I am pretty stoked about that, let me tell you! So stoked, that this happened.....
I have honestly wanted a wide format printer for awhile, and then being on Liz's team pushed me over the edge! I love my Epson printers and I am pretty sure this one will be no different. I am hoping to do hybrid projects using my Silhouette and this printer to give you guys some great ideas. I already have a wish list a mile long over at The Lilypad store, I just need to figure out where to start on it!
And I will include 8.5 x 11 examples for those of you that don't want or need a wide format printer. Since I scrap that size occasionally there is no reason not to do it hybrid!
Don't worry, I am NOT giving up paper scrapping at all, I am just adding to my collection even more! I crave the feel of paper and playing with it. I am on a computer all day at work, so digital scrapping is not the way I want to exclusively create. Just branching out a little!
So I am thinking a day a week for sewing and a day for hybrid scrapping. Not sure that will be every week, I haven't played around with it enough yet to know how long it will take. Does this sound like fun? Let me know in the comments!
