Learning Something New - -

- - again with Shimelle as she starts her 2007 class of Learn Something New Every Day and I am feeling very posh to called an Alumni of this years class!!!

This September, I'm going back to school. In my own little world. I've got a book and a pen and I'm going to record what I learn from life. I believe I really can learn something new every day. I'll share what I'm learning in the form of pages from my book, posted right here on my blog.

I'm not alone: lots of crafty ladies are learning and recording right along with me. See their work here and here. Learn more about our project here.

I so enjoyed this class last year and have tried to apply the concept of doing a little something crafty wise every day throughout the year - not always very successfully I might add!!! It also makes me actually USE some of the endless supplies I seem to have accumulated instead of just stroking and sorting them! Anyhow I have joined in again with a group of friends old and new to see what I can make this month!
As I completed my album last year I am going to use this year's prompts to create a Gratitude Album making it a slightly different a project to last year.I just hope it will work and not be TOO "slushy" as we reserved Brits would think. My intention is to make a hole in that stash of endless supplies!!!! Do you think I will manage it? Hope so any way.
Here is the title page and the first entry. I have used assorted co-ordinating Bazzill CS and Chatterbox papers - my very favourite flowers (as always - LOL - I must be the Prima queen - but I have to use them and I am beginning to think they will have to be my trademark!!) I have also joined the Flickr group and uploaded to there as well. Anyway here are my first pages.

The Shimelle project sounds really interested and I'll revisit your blog to see how it's going.
