I'm sort of one of those people who has a lot of hobbies. A lot. Actually, that's probably understating the scope of the number of things I've attempted. Since the Etsy shop began, I do usually spend my time cross-stitching, but I know how to do any number of crafty things... knitting, crochet, sewing, scrapbooking, embroidery... I've tried it all! And over the years all those hobbies have amassed a rather frighting amount of supplies. That being said, I love experimenting with using non-traditional supplies for the hobbies that I do have! Painting Aida cloth to cross stitch on? Done it. Crochet with kitchen twine? Check. Embroider on scrapbooking paper? Well yes... yes I do.
Cool, huh? I've been playing around with stitching on paper for a while (both embroidery and cross stitch). I really love the selection of scrapbooking paper out there (and own a shameful amount for someone who has never actually done much scrapbooking). At least if I stitch on it, it justifies the large amount of paper I own. Want to see details?
They turned out better than I could have hoped for -- and so much nicer than store-bought cards!
