I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

                              These pages document moving from Fall into Winter.............

I have used a 3/4 page (on the left ) that opens to these pictures
and was able to scrap 8  photos in this way (along with four 3x3 across the top left)...

I found two old Basic Grey papers that I think are muted and soft....on a darkish gray
cardstock background....

                                                      Here is the 12x12 spread
                           [The Snow Queen appears on all my Seasonal Spreads (top right)]


                                            A closer view of the 3/4 page's reverse side....
         {FYI: the music is by Carlos Jobim...that I often play on the piano when my hands allow}

I snapped all these photos off our back deck looking down into the forest that surrounds
us....so they have a "place" memory in my heart...the snowflakes presaging Winter's arrival
I find this kind of work so relaxing and satisfying...ahhhhh....
