Hello everyone Jayme Loge here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog.
I am now the mother of a fourteen-year-old girl. She is feisty and brilliant and amazing and she is going to do wonderful things in this world. She is evolving before my eyes and it is exciting to see her discover her strengths, make mistakes and make choices about whom she is going to be. It’s lovely, and completely unbalancing. Some days she changes faster than I can keep up with and then when I think I can stretch no further, she relaxes and cocoons herself in the safety of home. I take a break from this dance by looking back at old photos and remembering all the little details of who she is and where she has come from.
It’s funny the traits that don’t change. Her hands-on approach is one of them. She loved wearing ‘twirly’ dresses out to the garden, craft room or garage and just jumping in. Now she never puts on a dress, let alone twirl for any reason, but she will get right into anything to figure out how it works and what it does. May I present “Hands On Kid” from my trip down memory lane:Supplies Used: Paper House Productions patterned paper, acetate paper, stickers and cork; Dusty Attic chipboard; May Arts trim; Inca Gold; Making Memories (like seriously 12 years old) gem ‘A’.
I loved the vibrant colors and strong patterns from the “One Big Happy” paper line from Paper House Productions. They exude as much life as my whirlwind of a kid! When she dives into something, she dives in with all her heart and passion. That attribute has also remained steady with her, and I hope it never changes!
