A New Journey

Starting this Faithful Crafter blog is a whole new journey in my life.  I was looking for a way to evolve my  Christain ministry to women along with my many hobbies and interests.  My complete joy comes from sharing "hand made" items with friends and family.  Whether it is a custom card, mini album, gift box or music video, each personal item has an opportunity for me to share the beautiful messages from the Lord. I am looking forward to sharing with you the creative ideas, techniques, and new crafting products that come across my workspace.   

Last night I played for a few hours with all of my scrapbooking paper getting it all organized.  By designer, colors, solids, prints, seasons and so on.  My paper collection was out of control and needed a good cleaning up.  If any of you have paper organizing ideas and would like to share, I would love to hear from you. 

Recently finished a mini album gift for my friend Kelly.  It has a Harvest/Fall theme with endless photo matts and journal tags.  This album took my skills to a whole new level.  I'm working on a video of it and will post it soon.  Working on this album made me very aware that I need more fibers and charms.   Looking forward to scouting out great deals and sharing them with you all soon.  If you haven't been to Creative Fiber Arts website, check it out for great fiber deals by the yard.  Looking for charms to embellish my albums with and if any of you know where to get a great deal, please let me know.

Thanks for taking time to check out the Faithful Crafter blog.

Have a blessed day.
