Curious About TwoCraftingSisters?


Happy 3 Year Blogoversary to us!

Here's a hint about something we enjoy doing together....other than crafting. We were inspired by Becky Higgins' iscrap idea to tell you a little more about us, so here goes....Maura and Sheila.

I was...a stamper before I started scrapbooking, and wanted nothing to do with it, until Sheila finally talked me into it (that only took you how many years, Sheila?)

I am...a wife, mother to two sons, sister, friend and blessed in all of these.

I think...that the Golden Rule still applies, that we treat others, how we ourselves would like to be treated, respect each other.

I wonder...what the world would be like if we had more time to play and imagine (bet we would create a lot more).

I wish...that I had a craft room all to myself, that I could share with friends when I want to!

I save...way too much...bits and pieces from trips, cup holders from Starbucks, corrugated cardboard, bubble wrap (love to stamp with the cardboard and bubblewrap and use torn cardboard in projects).

I always...need to read before I go to bed.  Right now I am reading a SteamPunk novel called "Phoenix Rising, A Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences" by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris.

I can't imagine...not having my morning cup of coffee...or two.

I believe...that a little scrapbooking, stamping or art journaling are necessary each day to keep me in harmony with my life.

I love...the quiet time in the morning when the birds are chirping, the sun is rising, and no one else is up yet....but I also like to sleep in late, so that is usually on the days I get up to go to school to teach.

I promise...to keep trying new things and push my creative boundaries.

I scrap...to tell a story, to create something beautiful out of bits and pieces, to play, to be with friends, to keep my crafting connection with Sheila on twocraftingsisters, and most of all because I simply need to do this. 

Sheila here, now, it's my turn---

I was...up this morning at 3:30 a.m. which is pretty much the norm around here. I'm an early to bed, early to rise kind of person.

I am...having a lot more fun making mini books and journals now and cannot remember the last time I actually made a scrapbook layout. I'm getting inspired by Maura's recent ones though.

I think...it's easier to live without TV than most people realize. We don't have any service in our home and it frees up a whole lot more crafting time.

I wonder...what flavors the cupcake shop has on the menu today?

I wish...there were more scrapbooking magazines still in publication. The inspiration online is great, but I miss sitting down and reading through an actual paper magazine.

I save...my most favorite patterned papers and embellishments for that one special project that never seems to happen and they sit unused in a drawer until they go out of style so I am going to jump right in with my favorites and use them in current projects.

I always...have a neat and tidy workspace. I just can't seem to get messy.

I can't imagine...a morning without coffee. Hmmmm....same answer as Maura.....

I believe...Maura is the best sister ever and  I love...her.

I scrap...for myself.
