Papery Things

I put together a few more mini envelope/card sets this evening, though I still have to make sticker seals for them. I had made all the envelopes awhile ago, including at the crafty meeting in Campbell, but hadn’t actually made flat cards and tied them up with fibers until tonight.

I actually listed some of my previously made sets on the handmade/crafty shopping site Etsy (check out my “shop” here), but none have sold yet. I don’t know if it’s a matter of the price, which I think is decent, or if people just aren’t into what I’ve made. It could just be that not enough people are viewing that site yet, so maybe I should try to list them on eBay, like a friend suggested to me awhile ago. I’m certainly not new to eBay, but I don’t know if it would fit there, plus there are the fees to consider.

While I was working on the flat cards though, just digging through my cardstock stash, I started thinking about getting into scrapbooking. I think about it now and then, especially since I buy a good amount of scrapbook paper for making envelopes, but have never actually started a scrapbook. I definitely have the supplies for it, but I guess coming up with content is my problem.

Looking at various examples of scrapbook pages people post online, I just don’t feel like I have much to “scrap.” Taking a look at my digital photos, the majority are either of hamsters or of beach and similarly scenic nature shots, and neither of these seems like the kind of thing to go into a scrapbook. Not that there is any right or wrong when it comes to keeping a scrapbook, but I guess I don’t have the same motivation when I think about it.

I guess I could print up a few digital photos and at least try to create a page, just to see if I enjoy working on such a thing. Then I’ll be able to say that I tried, even if I end up hating doing it or how things turn out. Now, which hamster photos should I start with…? :)
