I love creating stuff with my own hands. A few years ago, I started using my scrapbook supplies to create birthday and greeting cards for friends, family, and colleagues. I quickly noticed that it was something they truly appreciated. I wanted to share some of the cards I created with you in case it inspires you for anything you wish to create in your life, even if it has nothing to do with scrapbooking or cards.
When I take the time to create things with my own two hands, I feel truly fulfilled. I get to hone my skill, use my creativity, take time away from screens and technology and relax. It really reminds me of when I was colouring books and drawings as a child. I had this calm, comfortable, and fuzzy feeling inside. I was also focused for hours. Taking time to create anything enhances my attention span and focus. I think it's a good thing since it seems to be a commodity in short supplies for many these days.
My latest scrapbook card creation is my favourite. It was a card to celebrate my mother’s retirement. She loves ladybugs and their luck. I made the wings movable so people could sign on the wings. I also made it so it could stand up but also fold and fit in a standard size frame. I purposely spent time focusing on the small details like the rivets and butterflies. I did not care how much time I spent on it. I wanted to do something nice for my mom and do it right. She really love it. :)
I make a card every other month or so. Some people even ask me to make some. Over time, they become better and better. I look forward to see what I create next!
For sure, one of my greatest source of inspiration for any DIY activity is Pinterest. I always do a search before I get started as people are ingenious and share great ideas. It's definitely a wonderful source of inspiration! I try all kinds of things. :)
Who Am I? I'm many things. I'm passionate about tons of stuff. I love travel. I love self-improvement. I'm a sucker for optimization, efficiency, and minimalism. I renewed with mathematics and science, those are so amazing. Astronomy and chemistry are just plain awesome! I'm a student, a mentor, a traveler, a learner, an artist, an animator, and Disney brings me tears of joy! I love to grow and I will never stop! So who am I? All that and everything else I have not discovered about myself yet. It's a never ending answer!
