It is dark and rainy in my part of Texas, a very good day, for we always need rain. In late Dec I started making a true 12 X 12 scrapbooking album designed and tutorial by Kathy Orta. The album is complete, now 1/22/15, I am organizing materials and papers to use. The first subject will be Jacob King, John's great-grandfather. He is a wonderfully fascinating ancestor but choosing material to use is daunting. Choosing designer papers is even more difficult, I have so much paper and it is so beautiful it is hard to use. My crafting level is divided between making the album, which I enjoy following tutorial and the construction, but I have little to none creative juices, so using these papers becomes a challenge. There is constant rearranging of my material, I am trying so hard to use what I have accumulated since 2003. That taxes my ability and prolongs decisions, however, "perseverance" is my strong point and I aim to present Jacob well and enjoy every piece of paper I cut. Now, back to my project.
