Tri-Fold TY card for Ebenezer Church



Sometimes plans go awry...... I had wanted to do a Accordion card (those zig-zag thingys). Then, as I scored and cut the paper.... I ran out paper!... ok, so I need to plan more..... lols!
Anyway, here's what I ended up with and I thought it looks pretty good!

ALTERED BOXES

ISAAC'S BOX
I had been working on altering these 2 boxes, a musical box, mini coaster album, 2 file folder albums...... Love the look of everything! I've been truly blessed; I'm able to take joy in what I make..... most times.

The whole process... with it's inspiration; flows and ebbs, it's stresses and many interruptions and distractions and yes, frustrations.... is usual in crafters and crafting.
I'm still learning to handle the stress of crafting for other people, as I told my friend E....
And she promptly commissioned another project to be due end Oct! I'm not thinking about it..... I need to recover a bit... and rest on my laurels for a teeny weeny bit! LOLS!

You know, half the joy of crafting is seeing the appreciation and joy of the person who gets to keep the piece of work. The other half is in seeing the work develop and knowing you've had a hand in making something to be treasured and is meaningful.

Enjoy looking!
