Well, not sure if I'm entering the contest correctly but my favorite craft (right now) is the scrapbook/card making one. I list them both because they both use the same supplies and material and really my cards are miniture scrapbook pages. I have bought a couple of magazines and taken a couple of books from the library on scrapbooking and card making but quite honestly I like to do my own thing. I am now itching to make my own paper too. Although I started out just making cards for myself I have sold a few. I have completed scrapbooks for my three daughters from the time they were born til about the end of hight school. Now it's time for my own scrapbook.
I've decided to live forever - so far, so good.

Making your own paper is really quite easy but very messy. Save all you scraps from the scrapbooking and card making. You can throw them in the pulp when you make your paper. Oh it is a wonderful thing to do to add your own personal touch to your cards and scrapbooks. Just make sure you have an area where you can make a mess.
