Ever feel like it will never end? I mean really, I just get finished one project and am off on another. I guess I have to admit that it is what keeps me alive. I really enjoy my recent jump in to paper crafting. I remember, even as a little girl I loved paper. My SIL would bring us coloring books and crayons and paper and pens when she visited. It was so fun. I always wanted to keep every one clean and neat. No dog eared corners, just smooth clean paper.
Later as a teen all my books and tablets were treasued. No marks in them and no crinkled pages. I could always do a bit of drawing but never a real artist. Art class was not really my favorite. But English and Grammar much more my style. I think that takes me right back to my love of paper.
Now I make paper flowers for my daughter and granddaughters and draw horses for my son. I am not the same artist as my mother, but my kids love my creations just as we loved hers.(and still do).
As I grow, (no pun intended), I find my love of paper has also grown. I now use the sheets I buy and make beautiful collages and atcs with them. Now I have found beautiful things to make from paper. I wrinkle it and tear it. I soak it and ink it and even iron it! My creations may not be yet at the level of a real arteeest,as we used to say as children. However, they make me happy and after all I have to use up 20 years worth of paper! I better get crackin' on to my next project!
