The theme for this week's challenge on the Simon Says Stamp & Show blog is to show a childhood memory. I thought long and hard and tried out various ideas in my head but none were satisfying my inner self. Then it dawned on me that I was making this much harder than it should be.
One of my favorite memories as a young child was sitting down with a container filled with paper, fabric scraps, glue, tape, scissors, needle & thread, snippets of lace, buttons, etc....whatever might be left over from a handsewn garment (thank you mom and grandma!) or a school project. In other words, creating something from what was on hand...no running to the store or going on-line for that special embellishment, paper or die.
I've proven to myself that I don't have to have all the new toys, bells and whistles to make art...but it sure is fun adding a few here and there! Hope you're enjoing the sneak peaks that are coming out of CHA - wow!
