A simple bone folder, yes, a simple bone folder has had me upset for the last week.  It was one of my first tools when I began scrapbooking.  It was ten years old and now it is the garbage dump.  I was using it to cover boxes and carelessly scooped it up with newspaper when I cleaned up.  I loved the feel and weight of that large folder.  I have two small bone folders but neither feels the same or gives me the feeling of really producing a great fold.  My brother would say, "Get a life."    I will have fun shopping for a new one.  So, becareful when you wad up papers after crafting or you too, will loose a something you value.  Happy New Year.   Play everyday...but only after you do your chores.

     I am thrilled with the gorgeous "preview peeks" from the paper crafting industry.  Especially looking forward to Graphic 45 French Country.  Mostly, my scrapbooking is of very old Heritage photograps..like over 125 years old.  I am now working on my husband's "Granny,"  not so old but she was born in a log house.  So, G 45's new papers will work great for her and my husband's mother as well.  I have been scrapbooking for 10 years.  It is amazing how the designs have changed and improved.  Beautiful, just beautiful.     Will try to be more consistant about posting.
