...or not to scrap

It is obviously clear that because of my pregnancy my activities concering scrapbooking have reached a level below zero....
The enthusiasm is not that big at the moment and I am suffering from a lack of creative ideas.


For every Dutch Dare or DT assignment I have to make I have to drag myself upstairs and squeeze a project out of my hardly-functioning brain. To try a new technique for Studio DaphNat is not that hard, since you just have to follow the instructions the in the book so this doesn't need any creative input from my side. But after 2 weeks, when I actually have to MAKE something with the results of the technique...that is when troubles begin..


I hope to be back in a scrapping mood when this little creativity-sucking creature has left my body and is lying in a crib watching mummy scrap :-).

Anyway... since I am not scrapping and spending most of my time on the couch... I decided to pick up knitting again. I actually stopped knitting when I started scrapping, so I still had tons of yarn lying around that needed to be turned into a sweater, a scarf....or.... a sheep! The first project I made for mini-me :-).

Knitting doesn't need any creative skill at all, you just have to follow the pattern and count the rows now and then.... So this is a perfect thing to do for pregnant women; you just don't have to think but you are still creating something. Of course it is a different story when you make you own design...which I will NOT do at this moment.


So expect a post about one of my knitting projects in between the occasional layouts I might post in the next 3 months.

THIS is one cool lookin' sheep, which your "mini-me" will cherish forever i think....it's perfect!
Tried your technique, was so much fun! I somehow didn't want to throw away the scrap that was put on top, cuz the back of it looks kinda cool too!!
