So what I'm asking is this (I think!). Are we evolving as crafters or....are we simply making use of an evolving product market? Are we using glass slides and beaded pins and vintage buttons and old cinema tickets (for example) because now they are in fashion we have them to hand, or because individually, we're working through product overload and finding things, techniques and 'findings' that naturally fit into our own style. My scrapbook style has certainly evolved...in fact, it's in danger of become formulaic. But my card making style, hmm, not so much I don't think...I think I'm really just making the most of all the products out there. For example, I rarely stamp a background pattern - just reach for a nice paper these days. Is that my style changing or product availability dictating my style. (Set aside the lazy issue!) . I cannot decide. I rather suspect that as I'm as shallow as a puddle, my style and my current like sin colour are entirely dictated by fashion. We'll see - one thing for sure is that time will tell! And hopefully, Dee will finish the album and no one will be any the wiser about the pause in completion. Not that it matters. But is interesting. Huh?
If you're at a loose end this Weekend, and can, try Kraft Crazy at Station Road, Tidworth - just had an email to tell me that Shopkeeper Gal is having a SALE starting tomorrow and open on Monday as a bonus! Details from her on 01980 844010.
Have a lovely weekend!
