(new) stuff to do
i ordered these scrap kits and they came last week. i was thinking i would have a few crafty friends over for wine and we could create the books together, or maybe i will just give them away as christmas gifts, either way it was for a good cause and they were a great price. i am really pleased with the quality of the product. i think you should get one (or four) :)

in other news (haha), i got my very first ever sewing machine. i am going to learn how to sew and it is scaring me to death. is sewing math? because it feels like math.

What a cute sewing machine. I too need to learn. My mothers machine is in the garage.
The scrapkit looks like fun!

I always tell people if you can drive a car, you can sew. (press with foot, steer with hands.) Easy peasy :)

congrats for taking the plunge!

Oh, I wanna come over and play at your house! The scrap kits look great.

Sewing is pretty simple depending on what you are doing. I think reading a pattern can be the hard part. I had basic sewing skills but took a beginning class at Joann's that was great. I still consider myself to have basic skills because I don't break my machine out all that much but I'm more comfortable with the entire process. I highly recommend it!

Regular sewing is pretty easy, but yes, some patterns can be challenging. My advice is to take it slow and easy and read the patterns sloooowly and put the pieces together and stop and ask yourself, "Do I know why I'm doing this or am I just following the directions?" B/c if you don't really understand what's going on, you'll end up with the collar attached to the pocket or something! Take it easy!

I don't know how to sew, either. Wish I did. You must report back and tell us what it's like!

I do not sew at all, but wish I did so that I did not keep my tailor employed. I LOVE the scrapbook kits and ordered a couple as well as sent the link on, thanks!

I got my kit too. I wish I had ordered more as gifts.
I can't help you with the sewing. I only sew on paper and an occassional costume.
